Warm Gift Takes Sting Out of Winter

Description

The new clothes are nice. The sweater is very warm because it’s very thick.

Winter can be brutal in Mongolia. Because of extreme poverty, the parents of Azjargal, 13, and Nominjin, 10, cannot always afford to heat their home or buy warm clothes for the children.

“When we don’t have coal I send my daughters to my sister’s home to stay there all day. I feel very bad for my children, says Buyantogtokh Nyamsuren, the girls’ mother. “When times are very difficult I have to go out and beg for some coal or wood from neighbors and friends.”

The gift of a jacket, sweater, and shoes from World Vision makes it possible for 10-year-old Nominjin to go to school and play outside.

"The new clothes are nice. The sweater is very warm because it’s very thick," says Nominjin.
