Help Ukrainian student

Donation protected
In 2021, Iryna's uncle scraped together what he could from his real estate business to send her from her hometown of Vasylkiv (about 35 miles from Kiev) to the Peak School here in Summit County. As Russia invaded her country and bombed her hometown, her family fled for safety. Her uncle had to give up his business in order to protect the family.

Her goal is to complete her high school years at Peak and use that experience to attend college, and eventually medical school, here in the United States. She left behind her mother, grandmother, uncle, and friends in order to pursue her dreams of someday becoming a pediatrician and practicing here in the mountains of Colorado.
Iryna wakes each day knowing her family is in very real danger and losing all they once knew. What brings her joy now are the friends and family she has made here in Colorado.

Please help us keep Iryna in the United States by funding her housing, food, tuition, school supplies, and basic necessities for the upcoming school year. Every dollar you can spare allows us to protect an amazing kid from the war-torn nation her homeland has become. Thank you…
