With the conflict escalating and millions fleeing #Ukraine, Canadian Foodgrains Bank members and their locally-based partners are responding to this #humanitariancrisis. As Ukrainians are being forced to flee, those in other regions in country and neighbouring countries are doing their best to provide shelter, food and a little peace to Ukrainians looking for refuge.
As a member of the Humanitarian Coalition, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, of which EMCC is a member, is responding to this crisis through their participating members and their locally based partners.
