Center to assist Ukrainian refugees opens in Ottawa

A center to assist Ukrainians, who were forced to leave their homeland due to the Russian military aggression, opened in Ottawa thanks to the volunteers of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress.

Ukrainians may take free of charge adult and kids clothing, toys, hygiene products and much more. Volunteers also provide informational support, including on settlement, employment, education, etc., and help with paperwork at a nearby state service center, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

The center is located at 1309 Carling Avenue, Unit # 13 (Westgate shopping mall).

On February 24, Russian president Vladimir Putin announced a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops shell and destroy infrastructure, massively fire on residential areas of Ukrainian cities, towns, and villages using artillery, MLRS, and ballistic missiles.

More than 5.6 million Ukrainians have been forced to flee their homes and go abroad due to Russian invasion.
