In the photo is the cute Laura with her mother. She was born in March 2021. Due to the mother’s health reasons, she was not born on time, but a few weeks earlier. Laura is healthy, is a lively baby and is breastfed. She is the big sunshine of her family and the little doll of her siblings. Laura lives with her family in Yerevan.
Laura has extremely humble and friendly parents. They received us with joy and warmth in a little wagon house. The parents – the 32-year-old Gevorg and the 35-year-old Teresa – told us that they rented at the beginning of their marriage, when the first child was born and the financial worries increased, the father was no longer able to cover the expenses with his salary as a taxi driver. So they moved to a relative and were allowed to live there for free for a while. But this accommodation was also temporary, so Laura’s parents decided to buy a small wagon house. Instead of paying rent, they were allowed to pay the cost of this accommodation in installments. Two more children were later born and now this family of 5 lives in their own corner. Laura’s parents, however, are happy with everything they have. Unfortunately, with the children their expenses are increasing. Father Gevorg hasn’t been driving a taxi for about a year. He was in a car accident and is now in debt. In order to pay off these debts and to be able to feed his children, he collects plastic bottles, copper scrap and metal day and night and sells them. Meanwhile, Mother Teresa takes care of the household and her children. She had to interrupt her studies at the university for applied mathematics after her marriage. Today she thinks this decision is a shame and says that she has at least learned and worked one profession, but at the same time emphasizes that she would now rather use her time for the children. When Laura grows up, she will definitely go to work, no matter what. Laura’s parents are interested in raising livestock. Father Gevorg in particular would be very happy to see some farm animals or chickens. The whole family could benefit from this later and take care of themselves. Laura has two brothers. The older brother Kostya is 7 and is in 2nd grade. He is passionate about sports and music. He would love to learn to play the clarinet. The middle brother Samvel is 6 and is in 1st grade. His hobby is singing. The mother will soon inquire about the sports and music groups that offer free courses. She really wants to support her two sons and hopes for such free offers near her place of residence.
A sponsorship would relieve this family of many worries. As a sponsored child, Laura can initially be provided with monthly food packages, and if necessary with medical and dental help. That would be of great help to her parents. This not only allows them to save some money, but also to take care of their children properly. The emotional factor should also be mentioned here, because thanks to such support, Laura’s parents would not feel left alone in their worries. In order to enable the family to have a decent life, we hope for a sponsorship for this dear girl. Thank you in advance and God bless!
