The Help Ukraine Vancouver Island Society is a volunteer-led organization supporting displaced Ukrainians across Vancouver Island. Together with partner agencies, we direct and assist displaced Ukrainians in creating decent and safe new lives for themselves and their families.

Help Ukraine Vancouver Island Society — це волонтерська організація, яка підтримує українців-переселенців на острові Ванкувер. Разом із партнерськими агенціями ми спрямовуємо та допомагаємо новоприбулим українцям створити надійне та безпечне нове життя для себе та своїх родин.
