I was in Tvrdosin (Orava region) on August 7th, on the occasion of the vegetables festival organized by the NGO Misia Mladych (Mission of the youth), which is taking care of needy single-mother families in the Orava region. What struck me was the motivation of the women I met there. I saw Gitka, a single mother with 11 children, selling vegetables she grew herself and cooking for the festival. I witnessed how motivated all those women were, and why it is of vital importance to lend them a helping hand in what they are trying to achieve. They were sharing their experience with the people present during the festival, and all of them shared a nice
All of this sounds pretty basic, but it is indeed very important for them, and they truly need what we can help them with.
The Misia Mladych is a wind of change for those families. They are given the chance to save money and to offer a better life to their children.
The problem in the Orava region is that a lot of men die from cancer caused by mine digging or by accident, leaving families with a lot of children without a breadwinner.
The principle of the project is to give those families the resources and the knowledge to meet their needs by themselves. They are offered food trees, seeds, breeding animals, and they are participating in workshops about do-it-yourself techniques. This allows them to save money by buying less in the supermarket, and also to adopt a healthier and eco-friendly lifestyle.
We are able to offer them those opportunities thanks to your help, and we wish to continue giving them the possibility of showing their willingness to face their difficult situation. Thanks to your donations, we will be able to get them more help and to organize more events and workshops for them.
Thank you very much for all you have done so far, and continue to support so that we can do even more together!
