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

We honor Ukrainians fallen due to the russian aggression through empowering their children to thrive. We foster a nurturing environment for them to overcome adversity, rebuild their lives, create a brighter future for themselves and for Ukraine.


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.

Our Vision

To ensure that Ukraine’s children of heroes find hope, opportunity, a path to happiness, shaping a free and prosperous nation.
