The war in Ukraine is in its first year and the violent clashes continue to claim victims and high costs for the nations of the world.
Among those most affected are children trying to escape and survive the war. Many have had to be displaced from their homes or separated from their families amid the tragic exodus of people fleeing the conflict.
In the midst of darkness, hundreds of people and dozens of projects try to keep the light of hope. It is the case of Carlos Lopez, a magician who undertook a journey this Monday and which will take him to Ukraine to provide shows for children.
López hopes that her shows can be an “escape from her reality” and a space for children and parents to entertain themselves.

Carlos López told W Radio what will be a trip that goes through Holland, Poland and whose final destination will be Ukraine, a country hit by humanitarian crisis that has caused the war declared by Russia.

However, Carlos confesses during his interview with W Radio that It is not an easy task what they will do. “It is a very big challenge, one wonders what one is going to do there, with what knowledge are we going to change situations”.
“But I have seen how people who consume these magic shows can reconnect with childhood,” concludes Carlos.
