Family Helper

About myself

My name is Iryna Chernova and I am 27-years-old. I am a Family Helper at the Children of Heroes Charity Fund. My background is speech therapy and psychology.

Why am I in the fund?

Since the beginning of the war, I have been trying to find a way to be as helpful as possible for my country and to find a place where my education, skills, and character are needed. That’s why after leaving the occupation zone, I engaged in volunteer activities, and later, fate brought me to the position of Family Helper. To be more precise, I don’t see it as a job: it’s more of a calling of the soul. It’s an opportunity to be part of something bigger as well as a chance to support people in their darkest times. And I am sincerely grateful to the foundation for this opportunity.

How many families do you take care of?

I take care of 37 families which include 55 children.

My strengths:

  • Determination, especially in dangerous situations
  • Responsibility, empathy, impartiality, dedication to solving issues and requests of the children, and a desire to help people and take care of them.
