Thanks for the mission Sunday collections. Providing €920 to go to the Family Fund in 2018
€340 went towards first Skin graft surgery for 12 year old Sorin. Soren’s recovery after surgery was very painful and upsetting for her and her family. They have decided to delay the next surgery until later this year in the hope Sorin will recover well and want to continue.
€340. For surgery to Ioni’s ankle. Ioni can now walk properly and is looking forward to football. Just before Christmas he told Olya one of our contacts at YFC that you have changed his life.
€240. Went towards winter shoes for 120 children This included 13pairs of boots for disabled children. The total bill for shoes this winter was €2600 Olya did a great job of getting the boots and shoes at a discount prices from the market trader she went to last winter. These boots are in great need for the children as there is a lot of snow In the outlying villages.
Someone from one of the village churches told of the sad story of a 60 year old man and his 16 year old son who are extremely poor. The people of the church helped them find a rundown house and the father and son have been working to make it habitable, unfortunately this place doesn’t have a stove / fireplace/ chimney and they were freezing in the -10 nighttime temperatures. Our friends at YFC have had a meeting about this and they have got a team together to build said fireplace.
We continue throughout 2019 in aiding the Family Fund over this difficult time winter time with food packages.
