Dear Sponsor,

My name is Mariana and I live in the village of Volytsia. I am eight years old. My father works in our village as a stoker in kindergarten. My mother does housework. I have four sisters and two brothers. My best friend is Iryna because we are classmates and have been friends for a long time. I play with the ball and hide and seek with my friend. On Christmas, my siblings and I sing carols. During summer break, I swim in the river with my friends and go cycling with them. I am a third-grade student and get to school by school bus. I spend almost half of the day at school. I like studying Math, the Ukrainian language, and Reading at school. My favorite dish is dumplings. I usually eat potatoes, pasta, some sort of soup or porridge, and cutlets at home. On holidays, I love eating cabbage rolls. I like playing with my younger brother when I have free time and I also do my homework. I dream of becoming a chef in the future. I look forward to your help and would be very happy to get it!

Caseworker`s comments 2023

Mariana is very kind, helpful, sincere, and friendly. She is also amiable and nice to talk to. Her parents do not live together but they visit each other and kids from time to time. Mariana`s mother often drinks alcohol. The children are poorly dressed. The mother receives social allowance, but it is not enough to cover the needs of the family. The father works as a stoker during the heating season, and when the heating season is over, he helps local residents take care of their gardens. They have debts, so the mother often borrows money to buy the most necessary things like food, medicines, clothes, etc. The family lives in an old house in the countryside and their living conditions are poor. Mariana and her family really need your support which will show them how much God loves and takes care of them. It will also open their hearts to the word of God. How great it will be when Mariana knows that you are her sponsor.
