Music to Heal Little Hearts When missiles strike electric power lines and streets plunge into darkness, the one force that truly penetrates the dark is hope. In the blackest times, the children of Ukraine need our help.

In the northern city of Chernihiv, just 55 miles from the Russian border stands the region’s ONLY children’s hospital. It is here that children who have lost limbs are saved. They are learning how to sit, walk, and move their prosthetic arms and legs. They desperately need rehabilitation equipment, beds, and medication to return to active lives.

Ukraine Forward has made it our mission to bring these vital resources to the children in Chernihiv Regional Children’s Hospital.

On December 17, we invite you to become a part of our mission. Join us for a holiday musical benefit – a celebration of light, hope and life. Ukraine Forward is teaming up with some of Boston’s top musical maestros to host an evening of classical and holiday music. Sing along to holiday favorites from all over the world and enjoy bites of winter’s tasty treats. And while you’re there, visit our indoor holiday market, our silent auction, and win raffle prizes!

All proceeds will support Chernihiv Regional Children’s Hospital.
