District of North Vancouver, April 17- Gloria Dei Lutheran Church is proud to announce "Hearts United for Ukraine: A Celebration of Culture and Compassion," a fundraising dinner dedicated to providing humanitarian aid for Ukraine. The event will take place on May 11 from 6-9pm at Gloria Dei Church, located at 1110 Gladwin Drive.

All proceeds from the event will go to support The Canada Ukraine Surgical Aid Program (CUSAP), which provides post-trauma reconstruction to both civilian and military casualties of war in Ukraine, as well as the Help Us Help summer camp programs for Ukrainian orphaned children.

Conceived by the newcomer Ukrainian women of Gloria Dei, this special evening will feature authentic Ukrainian cuisine, captivating bandura music, and traditional folk songs performed by Canadian-Ukrainian vocal ensemble Dru┼żba (Friendship). We are honored to welcome Canadian actor and activist, Andrew Petriew, as our guest speaker. Mr. Petriew will share his recent experiences from his trip to Ukraine, where he led a therapeutic Spring camp for children affected by the war. He will offer his observations on the mood in the country and how Ukrainians are coping as the war grinds on into its third year.

"Hearts United for Ukraine" is not only a cultural celebration but also a powerful demonstration of solidarity and support for those affected by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. Together, we aim to make a tangible difference by providing much-needed aid and assistance to those in need.

"With Russia's devastating series of attacks on Ukraine's energy infrastructure, Ukraine needs our support more than ever. We invite the community to join us as we come together to show our compassion and generosity for the people of Ukraine," said Vida Jaugelis, pastor of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church.
