Help Ukrainian student

This is Iryna.  In the Summer of 2021, as tensions escalated throughout Ukraine, her uncle Andre scraped together what he could to send her away from her hometown of Vasylkiv to a school in Frisco, Colorado where they had family friends.  

This is their story in his words from emails to her school:

"Every day we are loosing in Ukraine not only business not only our homes but also our friends and relatives. Bloody war takes everything we have. I am on my way to Romanian border now to help my mom and sister (Iryna’s mother) and move them somewhere safe in Europe. Already we can see that this war will not be finished in a couple of months and I am asking you to help us with Irina education.

As of today I pray hard that my sister and my mother will be able to escape from that hell tomorrow and get to border in west Ukraine (approximately 3 days journey) where I will meet them and try to organize accommodation for them. I will continue to help Irina as much as I can but if there is some sort of possibility to get a little help, that would be a little bit easier for all of us. Could you let me know if there is any aid Irina can apply for in US that would be real magic. 

Thank you very much for all your support and I wish you all never ever see war and have peaceful sky over your heads." 

Iryna wakes each morning knowing her family is in very real danger and losing all they once knew.  Her one redeeming salvation at this point 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…
