"There is no longer a safe place here," reports Serhii Lukashov, National Director of SOS Children's Villages in Ukraine. Together with his team, he is trying to place the children in SOS Children's Villages outside the country. However, this is proving difficult, as evacuation is currently associated with extremely high risks. Lukashov also fears that children will be injured and killed, losing their parents and siblings. There is also the threat of starvation and a breakdown in medical care, and school lessons will be cancelled for a long time.
"The war is creating a traumatized generation. We have already experienced this in eastern Ukraine. The children there have been living with the war for eight years. They suffer from panic attacks and severe depression. This is now threatening the whole country," Lukashov said in an interview.

CreaLog founder Michael Kloos on his company's commitment:
"All of us at CreaLog are deeply affected by the Russian attack on Ukraine and the impending humanitarian disaster in our immediate European neighborhood. The least we can do as a company is to try to alleviate the distress, especially of children and families, with a monetary donation. Since we not only serve numerous customers in Eastern Europe, but also many of our employees have family and personal ties to the region, the urgently needed aid of the SOS Children's Villages in Ukraine is particularly close to our hearts."
