I always get inspired when non-Ukrainian donors join our UCC Family. And when a donor joins the President’s Circle, that makes me think “we must be doing something extraordinary”!
I am very humbled to welcome Dr. Roy Cullimore to our family. Dr. Cullimore was born in England and emigrated to Canada in his early 30’s where he took a post as Assistant Professor of Microbiology and eventually as a full professor at the University of Saskatchewan. Besides being a scientist, he is also a consultant, inventor, a retired professor (University of Regina), a successful business owner (Droycon Bioconcepts Inc.), and a supporter of the UCC’s work.
Dr. Ray has never traveled to Ukraine, yet his knowledge of Ukraine is exceptional. The only connection to Ukraine is through a few Ukrainian employees from whom he learned about our community. That brought him to the UCC and to read our newsletters.
He applauds the UCC for its work, and for making sure that we keep our heritage alive. He is impressed with the way we advocate and help Ukraine with its struggles. He is also very vocal and appalled by Putin’s policies and treatment of Ukraine.
Thank you, Dr. Cullimore, for outstanding support during our 2020 Annual Campaign. We wish you tremendous success in your work!
