Young people have witnessed compelling footage of the war in Ukraine, including heartbreaking images of refugees and displaced families. Moved to act out their faith, students at Christian schools have raised more than $80,000 to provide Ukraine relief through World Vision’s Ignite program, a partnership that helps schools engage students and shape them into global leaders with a biblical worldview. Park Street School in Boston, Massachusetts, raised more than $16,000 through a walkathon after students, faculty, and staff established the “Children Helping Children” Ukraine Fund.
