Meet the Founder – Lloyd Cenaiko

In 1994, a life-changing journey to Ukraine transformed the course of Lloyd’s life. Driven by a desire to explore his family’s roots, he was deeply impacted by what he witnessed in the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Lloyd returned home with a newfound sense of purpose – a desire to make a meaningful difference in this part of the world. He made a bold decision to give up a successful commercial real estate development career, to launch and provide leadership for a new organization he would call HART.

In 1994, when I transitioned from commercial real estate
development to relief aid work, I couldn’t have been
further out of my comfort zone!”
