support children who have lost parents to war


Ukraine's Children Urgently Need Your Help


Children are already a part of our long-term support programs and that number is rising


Children have lost one or both parents as a result of the Russian war in Ukraine to date

Up to 50 a day

That's how many children have lost loved ones and are added to our programs every single day – and they need you

About Us

Children of Heroes was founded to help the countless number of Ukrainian children who have suffered the ultimate tragedy: the loss of a parent, or parents, during the ongoing war. The Fund provides the children and their families with comprehensive assistance, led by our team of Family Helpers. Our assistance programs are funded by our partners and donors.

We believe the children of Heroes, those who have fought bravely for a free and prosperous Ukraine, are also Heroes themselves and deserve care and ongoing support to help them achieve a brighter future.

Our Mission

To help Ukrainian children who have lost one or both parents during the Russian war by providing them with long-term support – in all aspects of life.

Our Programs

All of our initiatives are dedicated to improving the well-being of children who have suffered from the effects of the war and your gift directly helps each child supported by the Fund until he or she reaches adulthood. Your generous donation will fund programs including: humanitarian and emergency aid, psychological care and therapy, crisis management, legal aid, educational support, as well as the provision of food, warm clothing and assistance securing shelter for children, when needed.

Each child you help support receives care that is catered towards their unique needs and circumstances. Learn more about helping the orphans of Ukraine and how you can help Ukrainian refugees.
