Natalie is a single mum who lives in Transnistria.
Her five children are aged 13, 9, 5, 4 & 1.
Natalie’s health is poor and so the children take care of their mother and their home.
Our partners in Transnistria learned that the children often don’t have enough food to eat. Their neighbours sometimes share extra bread with them.
To receive gifts was incredibly unexpected. The children were so surprised and delighted. Each item was examined with wide eyes.
Now that our partners have met Natalie and her children they will be able to offer them more long term support.
Every Christmas Shoebox brings so much joy, love and hope.
COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on our partner countries and this year, more than ever, every shoebox counts.
