The book of quotes published in cooperation with the literary agency OVO is called War through the Voices of Children demonstrates children’s paradoxical view of war. All funds received are directed to psychological support of children.

Olena Rozvadovska, co-founder of the Voices of Children Foundation said - "Today, all children in Ukraine are children of war. Millions have been separated from their familiar environment, tens of thousands are waiting for their parents from the front, thousands — continue to live in dangerous conditions: in basements, shelters near the front line and in the territories occupied by Russia. [...] After all, childhood cannot be put on hold because of war. Life goes on, there is hope — and that’s what keeps us all going on."

Among the celebrities, designers, illustrators and photographers who answered the call to participate: illustrators Nikita Titov, Serhii Maidukov, Oleksandr Grekhov, Iryna Vale, singer Jamala and her son Rahman, singer Svyatoslav Vakarchuk, chef Yevhen Klopotenko.
