Ukraine Child #42065 – $29 per month
Gomzyakov family is very loving Christian family. Parents and seven children of different ages from 6 months old to 8 years old: Maryna, Alina, Nazar, Davyd, Mark, Yelisey, Amelia. The family lives in Cherkassy – small town, south of Ukraine.
Many years ago Natalia (mother of the family) and Maksym (father) got married and lived in a tiny house. It was hard even to call it the house – just walls and roof, without a kitchen and toilet. But when they got married church members decided to help them and added two more rooms to the house. The house still needs a lot of work, but at least children have a place to sleep.
Maryna is the oldest child in the family. She is very sociable girl, has many friends in school and in church. The girl loves going to the church youth club “Avan” where they study Bible and play different sport games. Maryna helps her mom around the house although she is very little girl.
The main problem in the family is with the health of the parents – mother has hepatitis and father has cirrhosis. Father is very weak now and he is looking for a job of the night watchman, which is considered relatively easy.
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.
Sponsorship of Maryna would be an encouragement and a blessing to this family. Please keep them in your prayers.
