Community Service by our club member Anna in Warsaw
Anna Wieczorek is showing amazing community service helping those leaving and remaining in Ukraine with financial support by Rotary Club of Edmonton.  Below are some stories from Anna.  
March 29th:
Łukasz delivered supplies to Toretsk in Donetsk Oblast of Ukraine.  Items purchased in Poland with financial support by our club.
March 20th:
I have just completed the new shipment to Ukraine. 
It’s always a lot of driving and visiting a big warehouse outside Warsaw where I can get stuff cheaply & good quality plus other shopping centres for instant food and toiletries, then sorting out and packing and preparing the parcels, labelling them with our logo etc.
Most of the times it’s a challenging job but always making me feel happy that we can still provide help for Ukraine when most of the people around seem to be forgetting about the war.
Whenever I do the shopping for Ukrainians, the shop assistants ask me why we still keep helping Ukraine. I always have very interesting chats with them and tell them about Rotary. Last time a shop owner asked me if we are a religious organization! I had to explain and tell them what we do and how we provide help all over the world etc. Working for our project is a great occasion to spread more information about Rotary here in Poland and I must admit, people seem to be very interested and always greet me with a big smile and even offer a cup of coffee in a shop. I think this is great! 
Thank you so much for your constant financial support for our Ukrainian project! This means a lot to the people who have to live in the country occupied by nasty Russians and it means a lot to me! I always ask guys who are not very open to cultural and language diversity if they would swap with one Ukrainian family and went there right now to live! Then, they stop complaining about Ukrainians coming over and taking working posts in Poland. We are so lucky to have a safe place to live and enough food and access to education and so called ‘normal life’. And this is our obligation to remember that the war is still there. So close. So real. So horrid.
I think our club is showing a perfect example of persistence in providing help. This is not easy but I hope many people might follow our example. So thank you, thank you, thank you for remembering about Ukraine all the time and providing finances that let me buy stuff the people there need right now.
Yesterday, Łukasz picked the goods from my place yesterday morning and off he went straight to the border.  Łukasz will be driving there again in May. Who knows? Maybe this time I’ll go with him.
As always, all our goods that we had bought will be delivered straight to the Ukrainians who really need them.
I’m so proud to be a member of our Club! I have given Łukasz our emblem and he has hung it in his truck on the mirror so it proudly travels now through the roads of Ukraine.  Thank you for having me among this wonderful family of RC Edmonton!

Our club acknowledges we are on Amiskwacîwâskahikan Treaty 6 land. We are all Treaty People.  
We respectfully acknowledge the land upon which our club operates is located on Treaty 6 Territory and has served a purpose as a traditional meeting ground for many First Nations groups. This territory has provided a traveling route and home to the Nakoda Sioux, and later, Blackfoot and Cree peoples, followed by Saulteaux and Métis and other Indigenous peoples.
Edmonton is also in Metis Zone 4.  The Metis flag is the white infinity symbol on a blue background recognizing a mixture of two distinct cultures.
