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.
