Family H.

Divorced
6 children under 20 years old

N. is a mother to 8 children who escaped by the skin of her teeth from a difficult violent married life. N. has a young child who is disabled and very ill. N. lives in a rented apartment and tries to provide her children with warmth and happiness which was so much lacking in the family’s difficult years. At the home visit we were shocked to see the fridge empty, the poverty and the lack of toys for the children. It was heartbreaking to see the childrens’ situation that in addition to the difficulties they underwent, which left many scars in their hearts, they are constantly dealing with the difficulty of such an ill sister and a terrible lack. There is no doubt that helping this family with food vouchers will allow all of us to sleep better - knowing that these dear children are no longer hungry.

Family G.

Married
5 children under 20 years old

When the doctors diagnosed a growth in my head, all I thought about was who will bring up my children. I have 10 children at home and during the first years of our marriage we lived off child benefit only. A few years ago I went out to work in order to improve the financial situation but due to my health condition I can’t work at a permanent job and for the last 2 years I have not worked at all. I hardly manage alone with the upbringing of the children and the running of the house but I try my best to take care of my children’s needs. Due to the severe financial situation at home and my difficult health condition some of the children suffer from various emotional problems. Your help with food coupons will greatly alleviate my stress knowing that at least the children are not lacking food.
