We were introduced to a family in Ukraine that was very poor. The father is disabled and cannot work, and his three children are disabled as well. Two of the older children have vision problems and mental disabilities; one son is almost totally blind. The youngest child has emotional problems, and due to the poor living conditions will be placed in an orphanage. The mother works at a fish processing plant and makes very little money.

Anya, (red coat) our contact in Ukraine, talks with the older children. They are in their twenties but live at home due to their disabilities.

The father (L) is disabled and cannot work.

DCHA Team shops for food items to be delivered to poor families.

Unloading the food bags

These items will last the family for a while. Anya visits this family on a regular basis to see how they are doing.
