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!
