I wanted to update everyone who supported me and my love ones through this difficult time and helped my family to flee the Ukraine and get to safety. My Parents and my brothers family have all made it to Florida! They are currently all staying with me at my home as we try to figure the next steps. I am truly grateful for all your support and donations! All the money raised so far has been spent on the airplane tickets.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!

We are now trying to work out what the long term arrangements might be for my family to re-establish their life and rebuild everything they left behind.

More Info

My name is Iryna. I am from the Ukraine and live in the United States. I still have family in the Ukraine that I am very close to. 

My two nephews Arsenii (17), Georgii (14) and niece Liza (6) have fled their country with my brother and his wife. Last Thursday they awoke to the sound of explosions not far away from their home in Ukraine. Their father ( my brother) acted quickly and fled the country the same day trying to take his family away from explosions, bombing, and air strikes. They left behind everything but didn’t abandon their cats. They traveled by car, spent hours driving and then waiting in line to get through boarder to Moldova, and then to Romania. 

My parents are still in Ukraine, I am trying to help them to get out, and praying every day that they are fine.

I am trying to bring them all over to the United States where they can stay with me. Please, help my family to escape the horror of war and give kids a chance of having a childhood!

Update #1

I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for your support and donations. As you all know the situation is very dire and is continuing to get worse by the day. My parents fled their home and country over the weekend with whatever they could carry. I'm very concerned for my family and continue to work overcome the challenges of bringing them over here. I'm forever grateful for the ongoing financial and emotional support to overcome these obstacles.
