Himalayan Heroes visits Gerel
Himalayan Heroes visits Gerel's family in Mongolia

Gerel is a 11-year-old girl, a sixth grade student who lives with her father and a sister. Gerel’s sister is a fourth grade student. Her family has changed and started to suffer more difficulties when their mother died of illness in 2012.

“You are unable to image how worse I was while my wife passed away suddenly. I started to drink heavily and became an alcoholic father, so my three daughters moved to live with my mother in law afterwards. It was really sad that my oldest daughter died of mysterious illness in January 2016. My mother in law also got liver cancer and died in 2018. I knew she faced a lot of pressure and also spent her retirement pensions for my girls, and I realized that I had to change and take responsibility for my family finally. However, I work very hard and I still cannot offer to pay for our own living space for my family. I greatly appreciate the financial assistance you have provided us including a free ger, our new home, and it allowed us to move out from the relative's house. Moreover, I wish to especially thank TFCF social workers for giving my children long-term care and assistance with their amazing attitudes and professionalism during my absence. I will keep working hard and protecting my girls from now on. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to recover my family.”

Our dear friends, Himalayan Heroes

I want to express my sincere appreciation for the support of Himalayan Heroes. Their commitment was incredibly generous and helped us reach our fundraising needs. Not just the donation, but personal visits, Mr. Tito Moyse and members of Himalayan Heroes came to visit TFCF Mongolia recently when they travelled in Mongolia. They also gave the warmest regards to Gerel’s family and visited their ger which was under construction during their visit period. Thank Himalayan Heroes for participating in our project and we do treasure the partnership and friendship with Himalayan Heroes.      

The prices of Mongolia Ger has kept going up and up this year, and it brings more difficulties for disadvantaged families who need a ger before the winter coming. TFCF has done our best to provide 13 families in total so far this year and there are 7 households to receive the replacement of furniture, walls, wooden floor etc. Winter is coming again, and we are glad to have you with us. Thank you!

Wish you all the best!

With gratitude,

Wen Hung

So happy to move into a new ger~
So happy to move into a new ger~

Geegia is a 15-year-old girl, a ninth grade student who lives with her mother and a half-sister. Her mother divorced twice and raises two children alone. Her half-sister is 8 years old (second grade student). Previously, they lived in a tire repair shop with the worst living condition.

“We started to assist this family in December 2015. At the beginning, they lived in the relative's house then moved to her grandparent’s house. However, it was far away from school and workplace and it’s about 20 km away. Finally, they moved to the tire repair shop where her mother’s workplace is. Geegia’s mother rent a tire repair shop with her friend and they were business partners to share the revenue of the shop. Even Geegia’s mother was a hard working woman, she was unable to provide a healthy living environment for her two children. The income was unstable and there was not enough living space in the tire repair shop. The living space and room were filled with the tire and the plastic burnt smell. To consider that two children are girls and gradually enter the youth stage, we believe that we should help them move into a new ger where could be their new home to stay safely. We are glad to see Geegia’s smile again after they moved into their new home. Geegia’s family is so happy to have a new beginning of their lives and two children enjoy studying at home after school. They want to say thanks to all of you who have donated through this GlobalGiving project. Thank you for all your assistance. I really appreciate your support in helping Geegia’s family.”

Fight poverty for children

Most of us live comfortably in the world, however there are many children and families still living in poverty. Some people are unable to fight poverty because of unemployment, low income, illness, disability, etc. which caused by family accidents. We are unable to help all people, however, we will do our best and help as many as we can. Giving them a home is the first step to help fight poverty for children.

We have provided new gers for 3 families and repaired worn wooden floors for 2 families in this quarter. We will continue to help children and families to build their new home in Mongolia and we are glad to have you with us. Thank you!

Wish you all the best!

Chuluun
Chuluun's home is under construction.

Chuluun is a 10-year-old (the fourth grade) student. He's a twin to his sister. His mother separated with her first cohabiting partner after two children born. By entering a second cohabitation, Chuluun and his twin sister were born, however, Chuluun’s father died because of an acute illness in 2009 and they became a single parent family as a low income household. His mother was a leather goods maker who had unstable income to raise 4 children. Thus, they moved to Chuluun’s uncles’ ger and all children were able to go to school finally by receiving the assistances from Chuluun’s two uncles in 2010.

“I have been sewing for many years and caused serious damage to my vision as well. However, I wanted to give a good livelihood to my children, I worked hard and decided to get a loan from the bank for our own land and ger purchase in 2017. However, it was my own tragic times of despair when our home burned down and completely destroyed in March this year. It’s also give me an opportunity to see hope in time of despair, and I am thankful to God for having my family members all safe and receiving all assistances of TFCF Mongolia timely. Thank you for your donation and TFCF’s support to provide a new ger to us quickly this April. With immediate help, it released the financial burden and gave a warm home to my family. Your donation and support have changed our living tremendously in Mongolia. Thank you very much!”

Giving Hope in Time of Despair

TFCF has started to assist Chuluun’s family since 2012 and it’s a family with four children raised by a single mother. Periodically, our social workers visit assisted children and families and give the assistance and support to them. Thank you for your partnership and donation! You are giving hope in time of despair to them. I’m so grateful to you for all that you’ve done for needy children and families in Mongolia. This year, we are going to budget 13 new gers and support 12 households to repair their gers. We will continue to support more children and families in Mongolia through this project.

Wish you all the best!

With gratitude,

Wen Hung

Zorig (right one) with mother and younger brother.

Zorig is a 10-year-old boy who has one brother and one sister. Being unable to be a breadwinner, his father left from them when the youngest sister was born. Later, their father has a second family. His mother is a chef and it is very difficult for her to raise 3 children alone.

“We started to assist Zorig’s family by 2017. At the beginning, we found the mother left 3 children at home alone because she had to go to work. Their grandmother came to take care of 3 children after the mother received the counseling services from TFCF. Although the mother was a cook, she didn't earn enough money to support her family. Previously, they rented a room in an old tenement house where the living environment was terrible and it costed a lot to maintain their living. We evaluated the case and decided to support them through the project. We hope to see Zorig and his family could have their own ger and enjoy their childhood at home.

I’ve heard from Zorig’s mother that she was always worries about her children due to her worse health and the low-income in these years. She really appreciates everyone's donation into this project and it released her financial burden and distress. Now they can have a better living environment and also save their living cost gradually. The mother now can afford to purchase more coal and food for her children in the cold winter.

Thank you very much for joining us! Your donation and support have changed needy children‘s living tremendously in Mongolia. Thank you!”

Like Zorig, there are many needy families who need our assistances in Mongolia. In 2018, we provided 17 Mongolia gers and the replacement of Ger’s parts for needy families. We would like to thank you for your donations which help Zorig and more economically disadvantaged children in Mongolia through this project. We’re grateful you chose to support our work. Thank you for being a part of our team of supporters that are making our project a reality.

Wish you all the best!

Hi, we are Anart
Hi, we are Anart's brother and sister.

Anart is a 10-year-old boy who has one brother and sister. He has an absent father who has left family. He was a drunk, violent and abusive father. His mother became pregnant 3 years ago and his father was unable to be a breadwinner then left from them. His mother had to raise 3 children alone since 2015.

“It's an unbelievable project which allow us to move into a new Mongolia Ger as our home before New Year. Thank you very much for helping us! Our living environment has been improved and most of our family members are getting healthy now. It also released my financial burden and distress afterwards.

I'm so thankful for this project! Your donation and support have improved our living tremendously after moving into our new home. You gave me a hope to see the future of my children. Thank you!”

- Message from Anart’s mother

** Anart is the fake name due to the fact that the privacy and safety of individuals is respected.

 

TFCF started to assist Anart’s family on 2017. Anart’s mother has to work away from home and her monthly income is MNT300,000 (appr. USD116) which is not enough to support their living and rental. Even Anart’s grandma stayed with them to take care children, they were not strong enough and kept getting sick often. We evaluated their condition and sought more resources for them since last year. Finally, we are grateful to assist them move into a new Mongolia Ger on November, 2018.

We would like to thank you for your donations which helps Anart and more economically disadvantaged children in Mongolia through this project. So far, I am glad to inform you that we have assisted 16 families to build and move into their new home, and also provided the replacement of Ger’s parts for two households to help keep their Ger longer usage. We are grateful for the support we have received from you and local volunteers.I want to take this time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I'm offering these early wishes here and also make a wish that we could have more people to join us like you in TFCF projects. See you next year!

With the season’s greeting,

Wen Hung
