Russian bombs target much more than homes and land. They destroy lives or, worse still, take away dreams.

Hockey in Ukraine is a favorite sport, a beloved job, and a way of life for 7000 people. Most of them are children dreaming of saving their 2022/2023 training season.

Help Ukraine to get back on the ice!
