On Wednesday, March 12, 2014, a fundraising rally was held at the St John’s Cultural Center in an effort to raise funds for humanitarian relief in Maidan. The funds will be put to good use in providing food, shelter, medical supplies and transportation for people affected by the conflict in the Ukraine.
St John’s Institute was well-represented with the Chair of the Board, Tanya Mysak and the Executive Director, Suzanna Brytan in attendance. SJI donated a cheque in the amount of $1000 to the cause. The contribution was in addition to the more than $100,000 that was donated. These funds will be matched by the Government of Alberta.
The rally will continue accepting donations until May 24, 2014. Donations can be made at www.cufoundation.ca
