Ukraine Child #42066 – $29 per month
The Sadovnik family is a very nice Christian family with ten children. Katya and Oleksiy got married eighteen years ago. They lived in Kiev in a two room apartment. In five years they have had five children – Vyacheslav, Viktor, Mykhaylo, Anastasiya and Anotoliy . Their apartment became too small for such a big family. The friends from their church helped them to buy a small house in the village Yurovka, fifty kilometers from Kiev. There were only two rooms in this old house, but parents were happy because children had more place to play outside. Oleksiy is a builder and he built two more rooms in the house. And… Five more children were born : Lidiya, Oleksanr, Fedir, Maryna and Sofia. In 2016 there was a fire in their house and the whole family of twelve was left with no place to live. They are renting a house now and building a new one.
All children in the family except two youngest – Maryna and Sofia – go to school. They are good students and love studying.
Sofia stays at home with Mom and older sister Maryna. The girl’s best friend is Fedir, her older brother. He has problems with his heart and Sofia plays “a doctor” with him. And they also play construction toys.
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.
This great Christian family is in very difficult situation. They need you support and prayers. Sponsorship of Sofia would be an encouragement and a blessing to this family.
