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!
