Dear sponsor,

My name is Mariia and I am nine years old. I live in a village. I have many siblings. My father is ill so he doesn`t work. My mother looks after my younger brother and sister. My older brother loves playing soccer and other games outside with me. I am a third-grade student and I get to school on a school bus. I like Art. I love Christmas and I enjoy singing carols on this special day. In summer, I like swimming in the river. I love eating tangerines and sweets. My dream is to become a hairdresser when I grow up. I want to make people look more beautiful. I am truly thankful for your desire to help my family and I would like to get to know you better.


Caseworker Comments:

Mariia is a cheerful and sociable girl who loves to run and being surrounded with her friends. Her family provides a loving environment, but they face financial struggles. The father’s frequent epileptic seizures have left him unemployed, while the mother is on maternity leave. As a low-income household, they rely on government assistance with limited resources for their essential needs. Despite building their own home, it lacks amenities like heating, leading to atrocious living conditions. Sofiia and her family urgently need your support.
