Lantern Rescue Operations Coordinator - Ukraine
As a National of Ukraine, I have grown to stand with my country through many trials. Initially displaced in 2014, I was prepared in a unique way to help those at risk inside of Ukraine as the war has developed. Through this position I have directed operations to serve hundreds of impacted individuals. This has included supporting them with needed items and information to protect them from becoming victims of human trafficking and exploitation. As an Operations Coordinator for Lantern Rescue, it has been a mission to minister to those I am serving. My responsibilities have involved media responses, leadership in groups, registering and accounting support, and communication with foreign partners. I am passionate about protecting those through faith, hope, and the proper support needed to stand together in Ukraine.
