Updated: Jul 21


In honor of Ukrainian mothers in Finland, Protect Children and partners donated a game to Finnish libraries and for groups with Ukrainian children. The project was announced on Mothers Day, May 8th 2022, in central Helsinki, in front of the main library “Oodi” and Music Hall “Musiikkitalo”. The big digital screen on the facade of the Music Hall hosted the video launch of this library project, including video greetings from First Lady of Finland Mrs Jenni Haukio and from First Lady of Ukraine Mrs Olena Zelenska.
