Ukraine Child #42004 – $29 per month
Alyona was born with several birth defects – she didn’t have one kidney and has atrophied urinary bladder. When father got to know about these problems, he left the family. Alyona’s mother Zhanna had to raise and heal the daughter alone. But mother didn’t give up and she helped her daughter to go though many surgeries and many other medical treatments.
Despite all pessimistic prognoses and due to God’s love and mother’s strong character, Alyona now is very sweet and smart girl. She loves dancing, but doctors don’t allow her any physical activity. She always has urethral stent (catheter). And dancing has always been Alyona’s ultimate dream… Now she goes to classes of drawing and sings very good. Her Mom said, “I could never even thought about it…. I thought she would never be like other children.”
Mercy Projects conducts a Child Sponsorship project in Ukraine to keep children at home with their mother or family members. Our goal is to keep children out of orphanages and home with family. Child Sponsorship supports the entire family and is the first step to bringing hope and health to these needy children.
Alyona and her mother live in two room house. Mother doesn’t work as she has to take care of Alyona all the time, so the only income is Alyona’s invalid pension which is very small.
Sponsorship of Alyona would be an encouragement and a blessing to this family. Please keep them in your prayers.
