Serving widows: “It was difficult to get used that he has gone”
“Global Christian Support”, together with friends and partners from the United States continues to help widows and their families left without a breadwinner, father and husband. This week we managed to visit and help the widow Chuguienko Oksana, who lives in the Novoluganskoe village, Donetsk region. This village is located in the red zone near the front line. All the fields around the village are mined and sometimes there is heavy shelling. The sounds of shooting are heard every day.
When the war started in 2014, it was very scary to stay in the village. Chuguienko family constantly had to hide in the basements, and Oksanasanitized_by_modx& #39s husband lost his job at that time. Because of this, he had to search for a work in order to feed his family in this difficult wartime. Yuriy Chuguienko worked on a large truck and when he was unloading the cargo, he accidentally touched the high-voltage wires. In October 1st, 2014 he died due to an accident - he was electocuted. Yuriy was a very good father and family man. Unfortunately, he died because of the war that had forced him to risk his life on a dangerous work in order to support the family. After his death, two children were left without dad: daughter Karina (16 years old) and the youngest son Artem (6 years old). It was hard to experience the loss and to get used to that fact that the father is gone.
When our volunteer talked to the widow Oksana and said that we have the opportunity to help her family with food and household goods, Oksana was very happy. She was grateful that there are such people who are not just pass by those who are in need and trouble. Oksana works as a sales assistant in a store, she has to work a lot. The youngest son Artem was born with a kidney disease, and all his childhood he has to follow a special diet. Artem has a disability status due to his kidney removal. The next year daughter Karina graduates from school and will go to a higher educational institution. Of course, there will be additional financial implications and Oksana hopes that with Godsanitized_by_modx& #39s help the girl wiil be able to study.
With the financial support of our friends from the USA, we could purchase the necessary food products for the family: products, chemicals and underwear for children. “We are very grateful for the help you provide to us because of the difficulties that our family experience. I am very grateful to your project for not leaving us in trouble. I have to work hard, Artem needs special nutrition, and that fact the Lord sent you to us is just a miracle. I thank you sincerely and with all my heart!” - says Oksana.
The Chuguienko family does not attend church and this kind deed has become a real testimony of Godsanitized_by_modx& #39s love and care for them.
Once again, we express our deep gratitude to our friends from the United States – family of Sergey and Valentina Pavenko, and family of Alexey and Alina Kirichenko for the assistance they provide to widows and their children. May the Lord bless you!
