Dear editor:

With the world in chaos, the people of Ukraine are desperately fighting for their right to be able to live in a free democracy.

Here we are, living some 7,569 kilometres away, in a very prosperous little town within our own free democracy, which we often take for granted.

With the Canadian government matching some donations, we felt that we could make an impact toward helping to address this unprecedented humanitarian crisis.

With so much wealth in this beautiful community we call home, perhaps together the people and businesses of Niagara-on-the-Lake can make a difference where it is so desperately needed.

Anyone wishing to support this cause can do so with a donation made payable to the “Agape Fund Series – Ukrainian Humanitarian Crisis Fund.”

Send it to the attention of Bryan Rose at the Niagara Community Foundation, 301-8 Church St., St. Catharines, ON L2R 3B3.

All contributions will receive a receipt for a charitable tax donation. All money received will go directly to the Ukraine humanitarian crisis.

The Agape Fund Series never imagined that someday the need to redirect funds for such an extraordinary humanitarian crisis would exist in this crazy world that we all occupy.

We hope support from people and businesses in NOTL and across Canada will help the Ukrainians come out the other side of this atrocity and that they will find the same peace and freedom that we enjoy.

Jim Garrett and Alice Klamer

NOTL
