Hi all. I am trying to raise some emergency funds for two Ukrainian war refugees: my friend Irina, and her child. After fleeing their hometown in Poltava, they have found themselves on the verge of eviction and homelessness in Italy. Since she left she has been searching for a refugee program that can provide her with shelter and a stipend as she finds her footing, but that may take some time and right now she needs to keep a roof over her child's head.

Irina is an English teacher - that's how I met her when, not too long ago, I spent a few years teaching ESL to children in Ukraine. And she was extraordinarily kind to me, especially when I first arrived, didn't know anyone, and was still learning how to get by. Irina helped me do basic things like find medicine and navigate the subway; even when she transferred to another school, she still checked in on me on a regular basis to make sure that I was doing okay.

All funds donated will go exclusively to Irina so that she can pay the bills until she finds a refugee program.
