Red Cross Alberta Fires Appeal

On May 3rd, massive wildfires triggered the largest fire-related evacuation in Alberta history with tens of thousands of people forced to leave their homes in more than 12 communities, including Fort McMurray. Urgent emergency services are required to support individuals and families.

The Ukrainian Canadian Congress is supporting the efforts of the Red Cross to help people displaced by the fires in Alberta. We know from our experience that helping communities recover from the effects of wildfires is not easy, but with your support, we can help those affected by this disaster.

A link through the Red Cross has been set up through which members of our community can donate to assist those who have been affected by these terrible fires.

Please donate to support our fellow Canadians at

The UCC asks that Provincial Councils, Local Branches and Member Organizations share this information with their membership and encourage members of our community to give generously in support of the efforts of the Red Cross.
