In February of 2022 the Stankevych family were forced to flee their native Ukraine when their country was invaded. They were able to come to Canada as refugees and settle in Ottawa. Because of the sudden nature of their departure from Ukraine, they could only bring four suitcases with them. With the help of the Snowsuit Fund and our generous donors, their sons Ostap and Zakhar were able to receive brand new snowsuits, helping them play outside in the Ottawa and make new friends as they settle in to their new home city.
