THE Perth Rotary Club is collaborating with the Ukraine Association of WA on a fundraising lunch to help support victims of the Ukraine invasion.
UAWA president Mykola Mowczan will be guest speaker at the event, being held on Friday May 6 for anyone who’s picked up an early copy of the Voice.
The UAWA represents more than 500 Ukrainians living in Perth.
Mr Mowczan has been in contact with families living in Ukraine during the war and says he’s heard first-hand experiences of the invasion.
“There are days I can hear bombs going off in the background while we’re talking,” he said.
Perth Rotary president John Shepherd, former Catholic Dean of Perth, said his thoughts and prayers were with the people of Ukraine.
The lunch will be at The Parmelia Hilton from 12.30pm- 2pm. Tickets are $50 from https://www.trybooking.com/events/landing?eid=890083&
