My name is Oksana Zhuravel and I am 22 years old. I worked in recruitment for over a year, helping people get one step closer to finding their dream job. I spent 5 ½ years studying international economic relations, but I have always wanted to work with children, having been a counselor at a summer camp at one point.
Why am I in the fund?
Since the beginning of the full-scale war, we have been working for victory in Ukraine.. My contribution is being part of the Children of Heroes Charity Fund.
The Fund is not a job: it is an integral part of my life. It’s hard to imagine what children who have lost their parents have gone through, but I support them in every way possible and help them using all the opportunities our foundation has to offer. The foundation’s activities are crucial because many families are left grieving. We all need someone to listen and help us, which is precisely what our foundation does.
How many families do you take care of?
43 children from 25 families, and each family is like my own! Each family’s story touches me and hurts in its own unique way. I am also responsible for implementing several projects through which the foundation supports families.
- Stress resistance
- A desire to improve this world.
