It has been a joy to see how the children are taking care of their garden. “How is garden?”- is the first question what we get when we call to them in their summer camp in Crimea.

There are no leftovers …. What to eat has been a daily question. Where to get food? It takes time to getting use to have food every day. The eyes can eat much more that their little stomachs.
Starving in their homes
Jana and Aljosha were locked in their house by their mother who was out looking for more vodka. She was gone for two weeks. The children were left alone without food or any care. They were eating potatoes skins. Jana found a way out from the house. She begged for food for her and her little brother. That’s how they survived. When they came to Friend’s House, they were marked by long time of hunger and cold. Jana was so little -she was light as a feather, she had been taking care of her little brother more than her self. At that time Aljosha was 1,5 year old and she was 3 years old.
They lived in Friend’s House for three years and have people who supports them. Thanks to the support they are now living in a family near to us. The new mother loves these two lovely children very much.
