Couple Transforming Their Island To Welcome Ukrainian Refugees

 

Canadian couple Brian and Sharon Holowaychuks are going to welcome Ukrainian refugees in their island.

 

 

An old resort in their Vancouver Island will soon host Ukrainians entering Canada, seeking refuge from their country. When Russian troops began entering Ukraine, the Canadian couple wanted to start transforming the island into a refugee home called the ‘Ukrainian Safe Haven.’

 

 

During an interview, Brian said: “With your support, we’re aiming to provide over 100 Ukrainian refugees with a safe and peaceful place to call home”.

 

The couple revealed that the personal reason why they wanted to help the Ukrainian refugees was because Brian’s grandparents came from Ukraine so he felt the need to help them out in any way he could. They first started transforming the resort into a space for hosting gigs and charity events but those plans have been halted until further notice.
