Ukraine needs our support. Russia’s military operation has triggered an international outcry, and many countries around the world are responding in support of the people of Ukraine.
Over one million Canadians identify as Ukrainian, including close to 200,000 Manitobans, and these events directly impact many more. Sunrise Credit Union is responding to the rapidly escalating crisis in Ukraine with a donation of $50,000 to the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal Fund, established by the Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF) and the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC).
“Sunrise has a legacy of supporting communities in times of need as well as stepping in to help those suffering globally during times of crisis. We stand in support of the people of Ukraine and the large and vibrant Ukrainian community in Manitoba. The war in Ukraine has had a profound impact on all of us. Many of our valued employees and members are from this vibrant community.” said Sunrise President and CEO Tim Klassen, “We are contributing towards providing financial assistance, relief, and recovery, and hope for a swift end to this conflict. We are committed to uplifting their lives and the lives of all those who have been affected.”
Sunrise Credit Union is accepting donations on behalf of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation to support millions of Ukrainian families displaced from their homes.
