Arevik – translated from Armenian means little sun. Isn’t Arevik like a little sun? She is a former sponsored child, but her sponsorship was ended. Her family would be grateful for a new sponsorship and support. Arevik is 6 years old and is in 1st grade. She can already read and write on her own. Arewik goes to school with joy, sometimes doing homework with the help of her mother. In her spare time she draws. In addition to school, she also attends a painting course. Arevik is a bit shy. She lives in her own world, does not like to communicate so much with others. But she is entertaining with her peers and well-known children from school and the painting club, says the mother. Arevik’s health is, thank God, unharmed, she is developing well, she only has her eyes checked regularly and because of myopia she wears glasses.
Arevik lives with her parents and sister. The family used to live in a border village. Her father Artur (30) worked there as a border soldier. He was later sent to the capital, Yerevan. Since then, he and his family have been renting a small apartment in Yerevan. During the war for Artsakh he was also at the front. He came home and thank God he was unharmed. Arevik’s mother (Lilit, 28) is a housewife. While her husband works, she looks after her children and the house. What Arevik’s father earns, he has to use a large part of his salary for rent and ancillary costs (70,000 dram, approx. 117 euros). It is financially very difficult for the young parents to look after their two children and to raise the family costs. The school supplies, clothes and shoes, as well as the daily travel expenses to school increase the family’s expenses considerably.
We are looking for sponsors for Arevik to support her and her family with monthly groceries. This support would enable Arevik’s parents to save some money on groceries. Renting in Yerevan puts an enormous financial burden on parents. They have to save everywhere. As a sponsored child, Arevik can also get medical and dental help if necessary, and our aid organisation will also take care of her new glasses. Thank you in advance on behalf of the family for your willingness to donate and wish you God’s rich blessings!
