Zonta District 8 Stands in Solidarity with our Sister clubs in Ukraine.Donate to Zonta D8 Fund for D27 Relief in Ukraine
From Zonta International:
We have been in communication with our Zonta members in Ukraine and are inspired by their strength and resilience as evident in the excerpt of their message below.
“We are calm and resolute; we keep in touch with family and friends. The main thing is that we maintain our strength of spirit — then we will not be defeated.
Today, Ukraine needs us, and we are called on to give a part of ourselves if we are to live in a democratic country governed by the rule of law.”
As a global organization dedicated to working for the advancement of understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of members and promoting justice and universal respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, we strongly condemn foreign aggression and acts of war, as are being witnessed in Ukraine.
