Ukraine Refugee Support
We are working directly with the Rotary Club of Chelm Poland to provide aid and support to Ukrainian refugees. The Chelm Rotary club is approximately 18 miles from the Ukrainian border - the same distance between O'Fallon and St. Louis. Rotary Club Chełm, part of the District 2231, conducts charity work directly at the border crossing. Chelm Facebook Page
Every day, about 12,000 refugees pass through one of these crossings to Poland. They are mainly women and children. The needs are huge. Together with other community volunteers, they provide refugees with water, food, medicine, clothing and hygiene products. Their activities are supported by numerous volunteers. We are happy to help them provide the support the Ukrainian refugees desperately need. Rotary! Serve to Change Lives.
We Need Your Help Please.
