The photo shows 6-year-old Sona. She comes from Yerevan and lives in a large family. She is in first grade and is happy to have learned all the Armenian letters soon. She is a decent and hardworking student. According to the mother, Sona is very responsible. As soon as she gets home from school, the first thing she does is finish her homework. At first she always writes drafts, so that there are no errors in her workbook. Only when Sona has finished her homework does she go to play. Sona’s best friend is Emmi, who is also studying in the same class. They get along well and often play together. Sona’s health is safe.
As mentioned above, Sona’s family is big. She lives together with her parents, grandparents, 2 sisters and the aunt (on the father’s side). Sona’s father (Aleksey, 31) and grandfather (Andranik, 52) are the only ones who are able to earn some money in this large household. They are doing construction work. The women take care of all the work that comes up at home. The mother, Nakhshun, looks after her three children. Sona’s oldest sister Gayane is 8 and the youngest sister Anna is 2 years old. Unfortunately, the sister Gayane is ill, she suffers from a periodic illness (Mediterranean fever) and receives medication every day. The parents suffer a great deal psychologically and find it painful to have learned about their daughter’s illness. They can’t come to terms with it yet and try to stay strong. For Gayane, however, taking the medication every day is a normal process and has now become part of her everyday life. With her entertaining and bright character, she eases the worries of parents. Both Sona and her sisters are all well behaved and very friendly children. They are very fond of hearing the stories their aunt tells or reads to them. The aunt (18) is a student and loves her nieces more than anything. This family of 8 lives in a small 3 bedroom house. Everything is old and in need. Unfortunately, there is not enough money to paint the walls and freshen up the house a bit. The first thing they think about and what they use the money for is food.
Sponsoring Sona would be incredibly valuable and helpful to her family. As a sponsored child, she is allowed to receive a large grocery package and ensure the basic needs of her family. In addition, as a sponsored child, Sona is allowed to have her teeth made free of charge and to receive necessary medication from our pediatrician. Overall, sponsorship would be a great relief for the M. family and would enable Sona to have a happy childhood. We thank you in advance for your support and wish you God’s blessings!
