Paul Derkach Fund - Salmon Arm Shooting

$10,390 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 103 people in 1 month
Created April 16, 2019
Paul Derkach was shot in the leg and seriously wounded at the Salmon Arm Church of Christ shooting on Sunday, April 14, 2019. A gunman entered the building, shot and killed one man, and fled. Paul was attending to this man, Gordon, who was like a father to him, when the gunman returned, and Paul was shot in his lower right leg before the shooter was taken down. Air ambulance flew him to the Kamloops hospital where they did surgery immediately. A miracle that he did not lose his lower right leg and foot, the bone was completely shattered and gone and a rod was put in his leg from knee to ankle. He has a long road of recovery ahead that may include more surgeries and medical procedures and in the near and distant future.

Paul is devoted to his family and his church family, and is an amazing, loving dad and grandpa to his daughters and many grandkids. He is actively involved in his community and is well known as a kind friend and light to so many people. We are so thankful he is still here with us.

Our immediate goal is to raise enough money to get him through 5 months of living expenses. Together let’s show Paul love, the way he continues to love and support so many others around him. 

Thank you so much for helping to ease the burden for Paul so he can focus on healing from the emotional and physical trauma of this horrific event.
