Dear sponsor! My name is IIIya and I am 12 years old. I live in Ivano-Frankivsk city.  My father passed away in 2019. He was blind. My mother is disabled. I also have a sister Tamara who is 11 years old. I have a lot of friends at school and at home. My friends and I like playing with lego Ninjago. We like these heroes because they fight against evi! and want everyone to be happy. I spend my time at home at Christmas. In summer, I go to the river. Besides, I enjoy going to the cinema, theatre and museums.

I am a 5 th-grade student. My mum takes us to school by bus and takes home in the evening. I don like school but I like Math. Teachers sometimes make remarks about my behavior but they always praise me when I eat well in the school canteen. In my free time, I go running with my friends and sometimes we fight and are punished as a result. I want to be a doctor when I grow up I would take care of my mother.

Dear sponsor, would you like to be my friend† It will be interesting if you write me a letter.

Thank you very much! I wish you all the best!


Caseworker’s comments:

Illya helps the mother a lot. He is kind and caring. The boy likes it when someone pays attention to him, praises and helps him. He is cheerful and friendly.

The financial situation is terrible because it is quite difficult to live on mother’s, and the children’s pensions / support payments. No one is employed.  They live in a one-bedroom apartment It is very small. The mother finds ”it difficult to take care of the children because of her disability and health problems. She also needs to spend money on many medical treatment.

Sponsorship will be a small way to put food on the table for this family who suffer everyday. The loss of husband and father has created a big hole in their lives and in their hearts. Visits from caseworker can help to life their spirits and open door for them to receive unconditional love.  Show your love thru sponsorship.
