News & Updates

The population of Ukraine is larger than Canada and the country is less than half the size of British Columbia. Over 8 million people have been displaced and crossed borders to other countries. An additional 5.4 million evacuated their homes, seeking shelter in other parts of Ukraine, because over 15 thousand apartment buildings have been damaged. This is equivalent to everyone in British Columbia and Alberta leaving their homes. More civilians have been killed in the conflict than currently live in Summerland.
