The Sunday Mirror is launching an appeal to protect orphaned children in Ukraine from the clutches of pedophiles and traffickers.
The desperate plight of 100,000 orphans in Ukraine will break your heart.
Many have been abandoned by their caregivers, who understandably want to be with their families at this time. For others, meager food, water and medicine reserves could run dry this week.
And even those lucky enough to escape the horrors of shelling in Russia may not be so lucky in the long run.
Without adequate tracking to determine where children are, they can easily fall into the hands of pedophiles or traffickers.
That is why the Sunday Mirror newspaper today issued an appeal to save them from both Vladimir Putin and predators.
And we know you’ll open your heart to them by donating to the charity Hope and Homes for Children, which is doing its best to rescue and keep them safe.

Britons are big-hearted people – that’s why we’re also lining up to open our homes to refugees under Michael Gove’s new settlement plan for Ukrainians.
This war will cost the Ukrainians the most, but we must all be prepared to pay the price. And all must mean all. Engine fuel will continue to rise as oil tops out at $200/barrel.
Sanctions will hit home heating bills, especially if Europe cuts 40% of the Russian gas it depends on, sending prices skyrocketing.
That means businesses must do their fair share by raising wages a little more than planned. Rishi Sunak must reconsider applying a £342-a-year tax increase next month.
While financiers have lost yachts, mansions and football clubs, it will be this week that ordinary Russians start to feel the pinch when it comes to IKEA furniture and their favorite American hamburgers. they disappeared.
Perhaps then they will begin to realize that they do not have a rational leader but a tyrant modeled after Joseph Stalin as their president.
They may also realize that threatening 15 years in prison for not reporting official fake news and locking up thousands of anti-war protesters is the act of an amnesiac dictator. The Russians may then realize that they have to get rid of Putin.

Price of truth
You will notice that your Sunday Mirror is 10p more expensive this Sunday. It’s not something we want to do, especially during difficult times. But rising costs mean choosing between that and lowering our standards.
You, our loyal readers, are at the heart of everything we do and you deserve the best newspaper we can produce.
Our journalists are risking their lives on the front lines of the Ukraine War to tell you what’s really going on. Our journalists are also fighting injustice and injustice at home with what’s wrong and giving a voice to those who don’t.
And our journalists are taking the reins every day to ensure our rulers don’t change the British people in the short term.
Thank you for sticking with Sunday Mirror.
We are with you.
