The Fund launched on April 1, 2022, shortly after the beginning of the Russian war on Ukraine. Our mission is to help children who have lost one or both parents due to the war to survive the loss of their loved ones and provide them with the immediate and long-term support that they need throughout their childhood. These programs include 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.
If you would like to learn more about our programs and how your donation is being used, we issue a monthly report that you may view here.
The Fund helps children who lost one or both parents due to Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine. Since starting the Fund we have supported thousands of children, some of whom have chosen to share their stories of survival and perseverance with us. Read more about the children we support here.
The Fund directly supports children impacted by the war and receive a Family Helper, who develops and coordinates care for each child based on their unique needs and circumstances. If your child requires our support, please reach out to us at [email protected] for assistance from our Ukrainian team.
While we do provide one-time emergency financial aid upon acceptance into our program, the Fund also provides long-term assistance with the goal of supporting each child until she or he reaches adulthood – in all aspects of life.
The Fund is officially registered. Our constituent documents can be found here (please note that they are in Ukrainian):
We also issue a monthly report to outline where your donations are being used, which can be found here on our website. Please also feel free to reach out with your questions, comments or feedback at [email protected]
