Barrie Family Welcomes Ukrainian Refugees, 2022
On the morning of February 24, 2022, the invasion of Ukraine and the cruelty of Russian forces shocked the world. Ukrainian men stayed to protect the country, while many women and children fled to protect their families. Here in Barrie, with the help of her sister Helen Ellement, Cathy Locke offered her home to a few of the families, providing respite without cost. With the help of the Kiwanis Club of Barrie, these women and their families have helped dozens of refugees of this terrible war.
