Olya Kudinenko

Kids of Ukraine/Tabletochki Charity Foundation

Founder & Chair of the Board


CEO and Founder, Kids of Ukraine and Tabletochki Ukraine. Olya is the founder and chair of Tabletochki, Ukraine’s largest charity supporting children with cancer. Since 2011, Tabletochki has transformed the field of pediatric oncology in Ukraine, improving the quality of treatment for over 60,000 children with cancer. Olya and her team have created partnerships with major international organizations, while raising millions of dollars to buy equipment, medicine and pay for treatments for children abroad. By creating awareness about resource shortages and lack of access to quality care, Olya has encouraged a shift in the public perception of pediatric oncology. Since Russia invaded Ukraine, Tabletochki has partnered with St. Jude Children’s Hospital to coordinate the evacuation of over 1,200 children and their families to healthcare clinics in the U.S., Canada, and Europe to ensure their safe treatment. A board member of the Ukrainian Children’s Hospital, OKHMATDYT, Olya currently manages Kids of Ukraine from New York as she raises funds for the situation children are facing in Ukraine. A graduate of the Fortune-U.S. Department of State Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership, Olya received the C4F-Davos “Relations of the Future Award.”. Olya represented Ukraine at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos in 2019, and was named in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Ukraine, NV Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in Ukraine and Focus Magazine’s 100 Most Powerful Women in Ukraine.
