Iryna Lujan is the Execuoutlook-image.png--1-tive Director of Universal Aid for Children, Inc. (UAC), a 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to fulfilling the medical, educational, and emotional needs of orphans, orphanage graduates, displaced children, children with disabilities and refugee families with children in the Odesa region of Ukraine. Since its founding in 1977, UAC’s mission has been to relieve the pain and suffering of these deserving children. During the defense of Ukraine against Russian war of aggression, UAC’s charitable programs have provided urgent humanitarian survival needs to help children in Ukraine. UAC, Inc. has received four TOP-RATED Badge awards and Certificates, 2020 – 2024, from GREATNONPROFITS. Inc.

During the years that Iryna was Director of the “Orphaned Teen Scholarship Program” in Odesa, hundreds of orphans who graduated from high school and aged out of the government programs who would have ended up living in the streets, living a life of crime or being swept into a life of human trafficking were able to gain hope for a new life. Those orphans became doctors, nurses, lawyers, teachers, artists, painters, pharmacists, and acquired other professions. They became productive citizens, built families and are helping Ukraine become successful.
