Canada Post Magazine: Fundraising stamp will aid Ukrainians
"The suffering that Ukrainians are enduring is very much on the minds of Canadians.
The dislocation and devastation in Ukraine since Russia invaded in late February has left roughly 16 million Ukrainians in urgent need of humanitarian relief, says the United Nations. That startling figure doesn’t even include the almost 6 million people who have fled Ukraine on packed trains or in endless lines of cars. It’s Europe’s largest humanitarian crisis since the end of the Second World War.
Across Canada, to express solidarity and hope, blue and yellow flags have sprouted from cars and homes like bright spring flowers. With gestures and in other ways, Canadians are responding to Ukraine’s dire need."
