Hopeland and Save Ukraine

Our Co-Founder Deborra-lee Furness recently met with Nikolai Kuleba, founder of Save Ukraine, to learn more about Save Ukraine and form a partnership to protect children, prevent family separation, and ensure separated families can be reunited.

Nikolai served as Ombudsman for Children with two Presidents of Ukraine, including Zelensky, from 2014 to 2021. His knowledge and experience has put him in the unique position to run Save Ukraine.

Support Evacuation Efforts

By receiving calls via Save Ukraine 24/7 hotlines, the teams rescue up to 500 people a day from active combat zones and take them to one of 15 rescue hubs in safer areas throughout Ukraine.

Thousands of children need to be evacuated and are still waiting for our emergency assistance with your support
