The war in Ukraine has now lasted over 150 days. On February 24, 2022, Russian forces invaded Ukraine, escalating a conflict between the two nations that has been brewing since 2014. This 2022 conflict has created the largest refugee crisis since World War II, as nearly 10 million Ukrainians have been displaced.
Among the ⅓ of displaced Ukrainians, children are facing devastation as over 6 million have emigrated and more than 200,000 were forcibly deported to Russia. Current reports are showing 358 child deaths and 686 child injuries as forces clash in Ukraine. Even those children who were safely relocated are now facing psychological and developmental challenges due to the trauma of displacement.

Teaming up with Kudoboard
Like the rest of the world, the Kudoboard team was shocked and heartbroken at the stories coming out of Ukraine. When we had the opportunity to work with Voices of Children this spring, we were in awe of their efforts. We provided them with an enterprise account, free of charge, so they can continue sharing the stories and artwork of these brave Ukrainian children as well as a modest donation from our entire team.
Join Kudoboard in donating to Voices of Children, so they can keep providing vital support to the most vulnerable among us. We are committed to Voices of Children and the protection of innocents everywhere, and we’re grateful to be included in this noble effort.
