Ukraine Child #42015 – $29 per month
Bogdan has been born with birth defect: epilepsy attacks. Bogdan lived with his parents in his father’s house in Chernovtsy, south-west Ukraine. When situation with his health became worse and the attacks became more frequent, Bogdan’s father decided to leave the family. Mother was pregnant by that time. She had no place to live and she went back to her parents to Konotop, city in north-west Ukraine.
Sasha, Bogdan’s brother, was also born with health problems. Father doesn’t support the family. Mother Yulia works at the open marketplace, selling vegetables. She works until 1pm and then takes care of the boys. The family lives in grandmother’s house, who is retired.
Both Bogdan and Sasha help their mother around the house. Bogdan goes to the special needs children class, the boy is hyperactive and has other health issues.
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.
Bogdan and Sasha have been to Mercy Projects Christian summer camps. They sometimes attend Konotop Hearts of Love Center. This Center is a ministry to special needs children and their families supported by Mercy Projects. They really love Super book classes.
Sponsorship of Bogdan would be an encouragement and a blessing to this family. Please keep them in your prayers.
