Support Refugees and Immigrants in New England

When Iryna Lebedenko’s home became a target for relentless Russian missile strikes, she, her husband Yevgeniy, and their 14-year-old son Maksym were forced to leave a once safe and comfortable life in Ukraine. When they arrived in Boston, they had few connections and limited English. Fortunately, she found the International Institute of New England. Today, she and her husband are employed, Maksym is thriving in school, and they see a brighter future.
