Canada’s nurses raise $51,000 to support health care workers in Ukraine

Silas: Our hearts are with Ukrainian nurses as they continue to provide patient care under devastatingly difficult circumstances

Nurses and their unions from across the country raised $51,000 to directly support Ukrainian health care workers, in a strong act of solidarity at the Canadian Federation of Nurses Union’s Biennium in Charlottetown.

Working with the Medical Workers’ Union in Dnipro, Ukraine, the funds will be distributed directly to help assist nurses and other health care workers on the ground in Ukraine.

“The money we raised this week is going where it’s needed the most,” said CFNU President Linda Silas. “This act of solidarity will help ensure nurses are able to keep caring for their patients as they face the daily horrors of the war in Ukraine.”
