Asat is an only child. He wasn’t one when his father died of a heart attack. The boy does not go to kindergarten because of Corona. He is very bright, likes to play, draw and watch cartoons. He has now learned Russian fluently through the cartoons. Asat was born in Russia. He was born early – at 6.5 months, when he still weighed 960 grams. With a miracle he stayed alive. Asat was his family’s greatest joy. The parents’ happiness was finally complete when Asat was finally released after several months in the hospital and was allowed to go home. Unfortunately, this joy did not have a long life. When Asat was 11 months young, his father died of a heart attack when he was only 42. The mother had no choice but to come back to Armenia with her son.
Asat lives with his mother with his grandfather (on his mother’s side). His uncle Gor (23) also lives here. Grandpa Gevorg (67) is retired. The uncle does construction work and has no permanent job. The family of 4 lives in an old house, which consists of 2 rooms and is heated with a wood stove in winter. The rooms are very tight for everyone, but Asat’s mother has no other option to rent an apartment and move out. The money is only enough for daily bread. The mother suffers from hypertension and is dependent on medication. She doesn’t work and looks after the son. The grandfather’s old-age pension and Asat’s half-orphan’s pension make up all of the family’s income. The family also receives a small amount of social assistance.
Asat’s family is in urgent need of help. The boy needs plenty of food and clothing full of vitamins. They can rarely afford basic supplies for the family and depend on regular help. We would like to include Asat in our sponsorship program and ease the worries of the family. As a sponsored child, he would receive an extensive grocery package every month, including free medical and dental help if necessary, which could enable him to have a more carefree childhood. The mother would be able to save on food costs, this would be valuable and incredibly important for the whole family. Thank you in advance for your support and willingness to donate.
If you would like to sponsor Asat, please let us know via e-mail email@example.com.
