Rotary on the move and on the ground for Ukraine
To provide relief for the people of Ukraine and refugees from there to neighbouring countries, Rotary Club of Ladner has donated CAN $2,000 through The Rotary Foundation's disaster response fund. So far Rotary has raised $1.1 million and counting to support clubs responding to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. This money will be used by Rotary districts and clubs in Poland and other countries adjacent to Ukraine for immediate assistance of refugees. Rotarians can make a personal donation, and receive a Canadian tax receipt and Paul Harris Fellow credit.
As Rotary International CEO John Hewko reports, "Two of the most difficult aspects during a humanitarian crisis are communication and coordination around supplies. I’m proud to share that Rotaract Europe (young professionals and university students in Rotary) has accomplished both. Within 48 hours, its Supplies Team, consisting of 60 members from across ten countries, developed a matching tool that quickly links demand for goods on site with the supplies inventory."
Ukrainian refugees are shown boarding a minivan, sponsored by Rotary District 2231 in Poland, for transport to a safe location in Poland. 
Food support and Ukrainian refugees to benefit from Shred A Thon
Food security in South Delta, for the growing number of people less able to afford the skyrocketing cost of food for themselves and their families, and support for Ukrainian refugees, are the causes supported by proceeds from the Rotary Club of Ladner's Spring Shred-A-Thon on Saturday, April 2, 2022, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, at 5381 Ladner Trunk Road, behind Eastlink (Delta Cable). Any individual, company or organization can bring their old tax returns, credit card bills, business records, bank statements, and personal information documents to be safely and securely shredded on the spot by a shredding company. Please join us in helping with these immediate needs.
Rotary’s network enables rapid humanitarian relief for Ukrainian refugees

The crisis in Ukraine is having devastating consequences on civilians as families flee their homes. According to the United Nations, more than 2 million people, most of them women and children, have sought refuge in neighboring countries and across Europe, while about 1 million more people have been displaced within Ukraine.

Rotary and Rotaract clubs in Europe and around the world have taken swift action and are working with members nearby to provide food, water, medical equipment, and shelter for refugees.

She, Him, Ze, Hir/Zir: gender pronouns
Personal gender pronouns or personal gender pronouns refer to the set of pronouns that an individual wants others to use in order to reflect that person's gender identity. In English, when declaring one's chosen pronouns, a person will often state the subject and object pronouns—for example, "he/him", "she/her", or "they/them"—although sometimes, the possessive pronouns are also stated. The pronouns chosen may include neopronouns such as "ze" and "zir". Ladner Rotarian Pania Lincoln gave on overview of using various pronouns people now use to identify their gender.

Connecting People with the Ocean
Plastic and other marine pollution is killing our ocean. It is estimated that 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris are floating in our oceans. One million sea birds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed by ocean plastic. Each year 500 billion plastic bags are used around the world.

For most of us this damage is far away and invisible. Without a personal connection to our oceans, it’s difficult for us to feel inspired to save them. As famed French explorer, conservationist, filmmaker, scientist, Jacques Yves Cousteau, who studied the sea and all forms of life in water, once said, “People protect what they love.” Ocean Ambassadors Canada is turning our attention to the massive challenge of cleaning up our oceans and the possible solutions.
