Australian Federation Of Ukranian Organisations National Planning Day

Thank you Stefan Romaniw OAM for inviting me to participate in the AFUO – Australian Federation Of Ukranian Organisations – National Planning Day yesterday.
As Deputy Chair of the Ukraine Australia Parliamentary Friendship Group it was lovely to participate with current Chair, Chris Crewther MP, and members of AFUO state groups from around Australia including Marina Ladaniwskyj, President Tasmania.

The Ukranian community in Australia is very active with nearly 39,000 people identifying as having Ukranian decent. One of those people is my husband.
