Help us meet our goal.

We’re raising money to make a difference through sports for the Youth of Kharkiv, Ukraine, Albuquerque’s newest sister city. Kids of War, a youth soccer team, was founded in 2022 by Ruslan Alikperov to provide a positive outreach for the Kharkiv youths during the trauma of war. Albuquerque-Kharkiv are asking your help to bring this team with their coaches to Albuquerque for New Mexico United youth camp with the New Mexico United professional players for three weeks in 2024. Let’s give these youths a time away from the war and be able to sleep each night without bombing and sirens.
