As the invasion of Ukraine continues, communities and organisations across the Eastern Townships have continued to show support for the Ukranian people in a variety of ways.

On Sunday evening Bishop’s University hosted a solidarity event at Centennial Theatre, including a presentation by Canada’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Bob Rae, a silent auction fundraiser for Ukrainian students, and a performance by the cast of the recent musical production, Godspell.

Elsewhere, municipal buildings in Sherbrooke and Richmond have been seen flying Ukranian flags, and both municipalities have expressed interest in supporting and welcoming refugees.

The Service d’Aide aux Neo-Canadiens (SANC) recently issued an update on the situation regarding refugees from Ukraine, stating that they are at work now getting ready to help families when they arrive.
