About myself

I am Olena Klymenko, a specialist working with families affected by the full-scale war at the Children of Heroes Charity Fund. I am a practicing psychotherapist and psychologist.

Why am I in the fund?

Helping people is what I do for a living. I am inspired by the active and warm feedback from the children. The support and teamwork at the Foundation give me strength and inspiration. I receive gratitude, a sense of being needed, an awareness of my involvement in socially meaningful work, and the fact that I positively impact the lives of people and society as a whole, belonging to a community of like-minded people. Here, I feel a certain stability in a shaky world where the war is ongoing. I have the ability to realize my goals and to receive an extraordinary experience at the Foundation. I am also a writer, and therefore I have an inherent interest in people and stories.

How many families do you take care of?

67 children and 39 families.
