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

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

Odger is a 14-year-old boy who has one brother and sister. His parents have epilepsy associating with psychiatric disorders and are unfit to work. They rely on his parents' disability grant to support their living. They also keep chickens and ducks and sell eggs to increase their family income. However, these do not maintain their own household and they still face the financial difficulties.

“I never thought we could have our own Mongolian ger! Thank you very much for helping us! As a mother, I am so sad that I cannot do more for my kids. We didn’t have enough money to rent a better ger before, so we could only stay in the cheaper and worst one. However, it did influence on health, and most of our family members got sick easily. I hope we could be stronger and healthy when we live in a healthy environment. Your donation and support have improved our living tremendously after moving into our new home. We don’t need to rent the old and broken ger now and are able to live in the warm and clean place through your project. I'm so thankful for the good deed you do for us. Thank you!”

- Message from Odger’s mother

More ger home arrived!

TFCF has started to assist Odger’s family since September 2014. He studies in the special school and both Odger and his parents have epilepsy. We found that they stayed in a poor living environment which was unable to keep them warm without heating and waterproof in a rented ger. After the assessment, we moved them into a new ger in August 2018 through this project. We thank you for your support which helps more economically disadvantaged children in Mongolia. I am glad to inform you that we have assisted 12 families to build and move into their new home – Mongolian Ger. We always need your support to assist and encourage us to serve more needy children like Odger. Thank you for joining us.

With gratitude,

Wen Hung

Hi, I am Marol
Hi, I am Marol's mother.

Marol is an 11-year-old girl who has 3 brothers and sisters. She has an alcoholic father who has the abusive behavior. In 2014, Marol’s parents were divorced because her mother wanted to protect children from domestic violence. Her family has received the family assistances through TFCF Mongolia branch since 2016 September. As a single parent family, her mother was unable to work and needed the financial support. At the beginning, they lived in a friend’s ger and had to move out finally.

 “Thank you very much for offering to help out with this project. Your donation and support have been tremendously helpful throughout these past months since we had to move out from my friend’s ger. It comes to creating the most stable family life for my children. After my children enrolled in school and started their school days, I also found a job as a bus ticket-seller. My work is mainly on weekends, so I have opportunities to participate in TFCF Mongolia Vocational Training Program. Now I hope I could improve and build better sewing skills, and I could earn more money for my children. I could've never imagined we would have our own Mongolia ger as our home. I would like to extend my deepest gratitude for all donors' and TFCF's support to us. I'm so thankful for the good you do not only for us but for many other people as well. Thank you all.”

- Message from Marol’s mother

 

Let's work together to help more families!

I am glad to inform you that the project has progressed well and we have assisted 6 families to build and move into their new home – Mongolia Ger. We would keep finding and linking all social resources for needy families and help improve their living environment in Mongolia. In addition, we also develop Vocational Training Program for parents and help increase their income as soon as possible. We believe that putting resources into improving the lives of the poor families is a good way to help them get out of poverty someday. Thank you for being with us.

With gratitude,

Wen Hung

New ger for Odongoo and her family
New ger for Odongoo and her family

Odongoo is a 11-year-old girl who has 4 brothers and sisters. Her family has received the family assistances through TFCF Mongolia branch service since 2014. As a nomadic herder family, they had low incomes and lived in remote rural areas. Their life became harder after her father suffered a sudden and massive stroke in 2014.

“We lived in an old and shabby Mongolia ger until last year. My mom said that our ger was too cold to stay and we were unable to repair my childhood home. Then, we had to move to our relative's house. However, most of us were getting sick because the house was pretty old and crowded with too many people. In the beginning of this year, my mom told me that TFCF was going to help purchase a new ger for my family soon. It was all so exciting and it was just so difficult to wait. Finally, they made it! We moved into our new home before Tsagaan Sar (Mongolian Lunar New Year) and enjoyed our new year with my family. Actually, we all are healthier and happier than before.

We are very grateful to you and TFCF Mongolia for all the help you have given us. I love our new home and I know you have done so much for us. When I grow up, I want to help and support needy people, too.”

- Message from Odongoo, the project beneficiary

Mongolian Lunar New Year (Tsagaan Sar)

Mongolians traditionally celebrate Tsagaan Sar, the new years feast. We tried very hard to find the resources and deliver the new Ger to Odongoo’s family before the early of February. We were so happy to see their lives changed.

In 2018, all of needy families face economic difficulties more than before when Mongolia CPI keeps increasing yearly. We have to be more careful to evaluate the needs and situations of family assistance, and ensure we can have the right priority to serve the most disadvantaged children and families. We are looking forward to receiving more resources and donations from people and hope you could stay with us and help more Mongolian children to improve their lives with a new and warm home.

With gratitude,

Wen Hung

New ger for Ariunchimeg and her 10 family members
New ger for Ariunchimeg and her 10 family members

Ariunchimeg, a 14-year-old girl, and her family have received the family assistances through TFCF Mongolia branch service since 2015. Her biological father died in an accident in 2010 and her mother remarried in 2011. Currently, she has 8 brothers and sisters, and four of them are uterine siblings.

“When I visited Ariunchimeg last year, I saw their difficulties. This low-income family was struggling the problem to find affordable housing. Considering the right to education and housing for children, I believe that our project could help protect children’s rights. It would change the living conditions for Ariunchimeg and her siblings and play in improving outcomes for children. Therefore, TFCF Mongolia invited the Ariunchimeg’s family to participate in our project and moved into the new ger by the end of 2017.I am very thankful for the project which definitely helps alleviate disadvantaged children's burden and live safely in Mongolia.”

New Ger & New Beginning!

As of December 2017, this project has provided 5 gers and replacements of furniture and ger parts to enable 5 households to have their own living space. All of families are assisted by TFCF Mongolia. Our social workers perceived children’s living needs during the site visit and we would engage more resources and supporters for needy families continuously. According to our finding, there are 15 households who also have the demand of gers and are waiting for the assistances urgently. We found that the number of families with substandard dwellings and housing affordability problems is getting more and more in Mongolia and it encourages us to keep moving this project forward. Please help spread the words of our project and we need more people like you to support children and families in the cold Mongolia and give them a warm and safe home.

Happy New Year 2018~

In the past year, thank you very much for your support to us and I hope you recognize the value of our services for needy children and families. The Lunar New Year is coming soon, we look forward to continuing to provide children and families with the most valuable services available through TFCF branches. We want to thank you all for your tremendous support last year. Our work would not be possible without you.

I wish you and your family a joyful, healthy and prosperous new year ahead!

With gratitude,

Wen Hung
