Illya Grybov

Ukraine Child #42025 – $29 per month

Illya lives with his mother and sister Katya in Konotop, small town near Russian border. The family of three lives in the dormitory, which means that they live in one tiny room and share bathroom and kitchen with other families. Mother works at the hospital as a hospital cleaner. They live on mother’s meager salary only. And more and more often mother has problems with her back, sometimes she can’t work, then income of the family reduces drastically.

Illya attends school. Like many other boys he likes to play football and basketball, but his real talent is dancing. On Saturdays Illya comes to Children’s Center Hearts of Love. This Center is a ministry to special needs children and their families supported by Mercy Projects. They have Bible classes for 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.

Illya is very sociable, kind and active. His favorite subjects at school is P.E. and math. The boy likes drawing and as he is still new at school he still likes to play with soft toys.

Please pray for the health of the children and for their living conditions to improve. Their support will be of great value and a big encouragement for this nice family.
