These children were evacuated with their families from dangerous regions of Ukraine by “Save Ukraine” fund and temporarily live in refugee’s shelter in Gatne village, Kyiv region.
In August children learned to make traditional Ukrainian motanka under the guidance of art-therapist Olena Sopruzhinska, inspired by our video-master-class of traditional motanka’s making. In former times, the Ukrainian doll-motanka was not just a toy, but also a talisman and home amulet, symbolizing the continuous connection between the generations by Ukrainian traditions.

During master-class children made motanka dolls and sent them to our charity exhibition “100 motanka dolls for Peace” because more than others, living far from their homes, which are at the frontline now, these children know everything about the war and want Peace more than anyone else.

You can see their works at the nearest exhibition in Kamakura, Japan.
You can support them and other children in Ukraine, suffered from war, by donating during exhibition or at https://aitsugi.handmade.jp/
