Project Partner:Leleka Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded in December 2014 when several Ukrainians living in the United States joined their efforts with several volunteer initiatives in Ukraine to procure and distribute medical and first-aid supplies to paramedics, emergency crews, and hospitals in the wake of the 2014 Russian aggression in the Eastern Ukraine and Crimea.
MORE THAN JUST HEDGEHOG
In August 2023, at Burning Man, Ukrainian burners unveiled the Hedgehog Temple, an art project constructed from anti-tank hedgehogs.Crafted from 6,000 pounds of steel and featuring 100 anti-tank hedgehogs, it's more than just an installation. It symbolizes the defense and unity of Ukrainians and pays tribute to those who lost their lives in the Russian-Ukrainian war.During the early days of the Russian invasion, Ukrainians constructed 300,000 makeshift hedgehog barriers to prevent tanks and protect their homes.The installation drew thousands of people who cried, prayed and discussed Ukraine. This year's art project should not end after the event; it holds much more significance and has the potential to save hundreds of lives of people who struggle for their freedom every day.
