RETIRED CANADIAN FORCES RESERVIST DELIVERS LIFE-SAVING MEDICAL SUPPLIES TO UKRAINIAN SOLDIERS
A Canadian veteran in Kyiv is teaming up with a U.S. tactical equipment distributor to deliver critical medical supplies to treat injured Ukrainian soldiers in the field.
Retired Canadian Armed Forces reservist Kevin Leach said he was tempted to join Ukraine's fight against Russian forces as a foreign fighter. He said he reconsidered after his Ukrainian wife told him that she'd be going with him anywhere he went.
‘IT'S ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL STUFF’: CALEDON MAN DELIVERING LIFE-SAVING TACTICAL MEDICAL SUPPLIES TO UKRAINIAN SOLDIERS
For several months now, Canadian Kevin Leach has been on the ground in Ukraine, doing his part to help the country as it continues to battle the current Russian invasion.

BOLTON ROTARY MATCHING CALEDON DONATIONS TO PROJECT VOLYA
The Rotary Club of Bolton is looking for your help to assist Kevin Leach of Project Volya (Project Freedom) in acquiring much needed medical supplies for injured soldiers in the Ukraine.
Modern battlefield medicine is an amazing thing. Advances in medical knowledge and technology mean that injuries which were once death sentences can now be survived, if provided with timely intervention. The medical kits we will be providing to the doctors include Hemostatic Gauze which help to reduce bleeding and keep the wounds clean, chest compression seals and tourniquets.
MILOS’S MISSION: BC MAN DELIVERS MEDICAL SUPPLIES TO UKRAINE
Just days after returning from the missile-cratered streets of Kharkiv and Kyiv, Ukraine, Milos Pospisil is jet-lagged but animated by the success of his recent mission to bring medical supplies — and a little bit of joy — to the people and children of Ukraine.
He left B.C. on June 26, returning July 10. It took Pospisil days of travel in each direction to reach his destinations, but the eight days he spent near the frontlines of Russia’s attack on Ukraine felt much longer. In an interview on July 14, Pospisil said it was difficult to know what to expect.
LOCAL FOUNDATION MARKS SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY
The war is nowhere close to over in Ukraine. Nor are the Ukrainians and their allies and neighbours in NATO, Poland, and the Baltic countries without hope. We, comfortable and removed in the West, are so constantly bombarded with sensationalized images of the conflict that we are in danger of becoming fatigued and relegating the ongoing conflict to the rear of our collective consciousness. Now more than ever is the time to push on and engage with the events that perhaps more than most people realize are reshaping our world in Eastern Europe and Russia, and will soon resonate with more than just raised costs of fuel.
VANCOUVER MAN RETURNS TO UKRAINE TO GIVE BACK AGAIN AMID WAR
