The war in Ukraine has caused a humanitarian crisis with the United Nations reporting 10 to 12 million persons, mostly women and children fleeing the war zones, many into neighbouring countries.

Rotary Clubs in Australia have combined with the Australian Federation of Ukraine Organizations (AFUO) and created the Ukraine Crisis Appeal  to help raise funds so as to provide displaced persons with essential items such as water, food, shelter, medicine and clothing. Rotary International also has provided relief funding support.

The Bayside Rotary Clubs of Brighton North, Brighton, Hampton, Sandringham and Beaumaris have combined with St Leonard’s College and the AFUO to plan a Concert event on Sunday 23 Oct 2.30pm at the St Leonard’s School Concert Hall, 163 South Rd Brighton East.
