Hello, dear sponsor!

My name is Yevhen and I am eleven years old. I live with my parents and brother Artem in the wonderful city of Lviv. My mother works as a teacher in kindergarten. My father used to work in construction but now he doesn`t work because he has leg problems. My brother and I enjoy riding scooters, helping parents, and playing with our friends. My best friend is Ihor and we have a lot in common. We like to share interesting stories with each other. On Christmas, I help my parents prepare Holy Supper (special evening meal). Because I am the youngest person in my family, I pray before supper. I also know plenty of Christmas carols. At Christmas, my friends and I visit people we know and play the bandura and sing carols to them. In summer this year, I went to a music summer camp in the picturesque Carpathians.  It was with the choir of bandura players “Hamaliya”.  I have been playing and singing for four years. It is good to singing and playing the bandura. I am in the fifth grade and my school is near my house. I spend more than six hours at school. There I have many friends. I also study foreign languages, like reading world literature and enjoy solving mathematical problems. My favorite food is hamburgers. At home, I eat everything my parents cook for me. On holidays, I get fruits and sweets. In my free time, I play games with my family.

When I grow up, I want to be a good person and help other people. Besides, I have a dream to travel a lot. Now we cannot go anywhere because my father has health issues. A lot of money is spent on his medical treatment. I believe that he will definitely recover.

Dear sponsor, thank you very much for reading about me and for making the decision to help my family or a family like ours.   Your sponsorship is of great importance to me. It will help us out as my father cannot work to support us.  May God bless you and help you do good things!

Yevhen is a kind, independent, energetic, persistent, and outspoken boy. He is a talented boy who is quite good at singing and playing the bandura. He also paints and goes to art school. Yevhen`s family is very good and kind. The grandma also lives with them. Yevhen`s mother has a job and provides for her family. The father cannot work due to health issues. He can hardly walk because his disease worsened after he was in the war zone in the east of Ukraine. The father needs second surgery so they are saving and collecting money for that and the medicine and therapy he will need for recovery. Much of the money that his Mother makes is spent on the father`s medical treatment. Mother finds it difficult to provide for the whole family. They live in an apartment which needs to be repaired. The living conditions are safe.

Yevhen and his mother would like to see the family become self-sufficient but things are tough now with saving for surgery. By providing monthly food packages they will be assured a regular flow of meals so they can focus on their father getting well.

Yevhen’s music is his way to praise the Lord.  Your sponsorship can be a way to show love and help them get to their medical goal – surgery with no debit.

How great it will be when Yevhen knows that you are his sponsor.
