The Women’s Club of Ukraine Endures through Challenging Times
February 10, 2022
Members of the International Women’s Club of Ukraine (Kyiv) are staying strong as they endure trying times. In January, Russia stationed more than 100,000 military troops near the Ukrainian border, despite warnings from other world leaders.
Clubwoman Lora Pavlenko explained club members and other citizens are once again in a strict quarantine zone and are facing fear over what the future holds. In addition to the possibility of invasion, the price of food and medicine has risen several times. Clubwomen are urging everyone to stand together and offer help to those in need when they are able. During these times of uncertainty, international members have been doing what they can to give people hope, including meeting monthly with women survivors of domestic violence, providing gifts to children at the holidays, and supporting children with disabilities.
Lauren Smith said she loves being able to give back to her community and local school district as a member of GFWC Eupora New Century Club in Mississippi.
