School administrator Iryna meets displaced people arriving at Lviv railway station

Iryna previously worked as an administrator at a private school in Kyiv. After the war started, the woman fled west to Lviv and decided to help those in a similar situation.

Hundreds of thousands of people who have lost their homes due to the Russian invasion arrive at the station every day. Some people have traveled for 2-3 days, and Lviv is still not their final destination. Iryna helps newcomers find warm food and drinks, access to warmth, a transportation schedule, and temporary shelters.
