UJW horrified by Ukraine tragedy
The president, executive committee and members of the Union of Jewish Women South Africa express their deepest dismay and horror at the tragedy unfolding in the Ukraine.
Hundreds of thousands of citizens, the majority of them women and children, have been forced to abandon their homes and seek refuge in countries across the border, including Poland and Hungary.
We join the world chorus in calling on Russia to end this illegal and cruel action and to desist from further incursions and unprovoked attacks on the country and its innocent citizens.
We pray for the safety of all those whose lives have been irrevocably altered and, in many cases, destroyed.
