Lived in the borrowed ger from father's friend
Lived in the borrowed ger from father's friend

Tsetseg is a 12-year-old girl, a sixth grade student who lives with her parents and grows up as the oldest with 2 brothers and 1 sister. In her family, two brothers are studying at the primary school in Grade 2 and 4, and the youngest sister goes to the kindergarten currently.

“I had my four fingers on my left hand cut off years ago and also my wife diagnosed with a mental illness, it was really a difficult time for me and my family got into trouble with the finances afterwards. My family has started to receive the family assistances through TFCF Mongolia branch service since 2017. I am grateful to have TFCF help us find a job and both my wife and I work for coal packing in winters. However, we are unable to have our own ger but living at the borrowed and old ger due to the situation of low income. As a father, I feel sorry that I cannot give my children a good living space or enough food.

My heartfelt thanks to you all for the great donation through TFCF specialized and effective aid programs. In these years, TFCF care and serve us closely, furthermore, give us a home, our own ger at this moment. Because of your support, all of my children have a clean, warm and safe environment to grow up. Thank you very much! I will keep working hard and be a good father to my children.”

Non-stop service

The coronavirus is now spreading all over the world and the Mongolian government has announced to close all schools and kindergartens starting from January 27 to the end of April because Mongolia is bordered by China. All children are not allowed to go out and many parents are going to face unemployment suddenly. The request of our project has been increased rapidly, and there are around 40 families applied our project. TFCF has supported two families by building a new ger. We hope we can maximize into 7 families, and assist 6 families to repair their gers.

We understand that this is a truly global crisis and we will do our best to keep the project moving forward because of your support! Wish all of our assisted families and children to overcome the coronavirus crisis! I also hope all of you are safe and healthy in your country, and it is really hard to face such a difficult situation in the world. I am willing to see your feedback and tell us how you are doing there. Let us pray to God, who alone makes us dwell in safety.

I wish you, your family and friends, the very best of health.

With gratitude,
Wen Hung

Happy New Year at our new home!
Happy New Year at our new home!

Ouengar is a 16-year-old girl, a tenth grade student who lives with her parents and 7 siblings and grows up as the oldest with 3 brothers and 4 sisters. In her family, five of children are studying at primary and secondary schools including Grade 1, 3, 5, 8, and 10, and two of children go to the kindergarten. The youngest sister is a nine-month-old baby.

“We were originally a nomadic family living in the pastoral area of Uvs Province in Mongolia and we have suffered at the hands of brutal dzud winter. All of our sheep were dying of the winter snow disease then we moved to Darkhan Province, shortly thereafter. It was really difficult to earn enough money for our family, so my husband went to work for illegal logging and was arrested and prosecuted by police while logging. Ouengar's father sentenced to 6 years in prison. He discharged from prison in 2016 and we moved to Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, to restart our new life. However, it’s still difficult to find a good job to support our family. Finally, he got a job as the assistant in the automotive repair factory. The working hours is quite long but the job is more stable and secured. I am happy to see all of us are healthy and live together.

We still have the financial problem and we also need to pay 50000 MNT rental every month to live in an old Mongolia ger. I am grateful that TFCF social worker understood our difficulties and supported us to receive your help through GlobalGiving Project and gave us a new and big ger for us. We love our children very much, and I thank you to give me the chance and allow us to live together at our new home. I also got a new job as a cleaner after we moved in to our new home. Definitely, I will work hard with my husband and I believe that we will be able to take care our children with our love and let them grow in the healthy environment and be a giving person like you.”

Happy New Year of 2020

Thank you for staying with us in the past year. As we all know that a safe and healthy living space is very important for children growth, so we choose to provide the Mongolia Ger project for needy children and families in Mongolia since years ago. We would like to invite you to join us again in 2020 and I believe that we may benefit more children well with your support.

The Lunar New Year is coming soon, and 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

Himalayan Heroes visits Gerel's family in Mongolia
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!

 

With gratitude,

Wen Hung

Chuluun's home is under construction.
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
