Dear friends! During my trip to Ukraine a few weeks ago, I visited orphanages and shelters that are taking in wounded and displaced children escaping the war. One such shelter is Misto Dobra in Chernivtsi, who are providing housing, medical aid, food, warmth, and education to wounded children and orphans from all over Ukraine. I am organising a benefit concert in Montreal under the patronage of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress to raise funding for children affected by the war. Two thirds of Ukrainian children are currently displaced. With their homes, schools, and kindergartens destroyed, these children were forced to flee. Many have been wounded. Many have become orphans.
