Anna and her small family urgently need our help.

Make a Christmas miracle possible!

Anna is 26 years old and has hereditary hemolytic anemia - a serious disease that constantly destroys blood cells, thereby causing other diseases. Anna's mother died in 2013, the father six years earlier. Now Anna takes care of her younger siblings so that they don't have to go to boarding school (children's home) - Eugen is 6 years old, Natalia is 17.

But Anna still has a little son to look after. Egor doesn't know his father. Anna's husband left the family when he returned from the war in eastern Ukraine, right after the baby was born.

There is also the grandfather, 78 years old, who used to support Anna. Now he's in the hospital himself and has lost an eye after an operation.

Despite her serious illness, Anna takes great responsibility for the whole family and tries to improve the living conditions in her small house with all her might.

But Anna doesn't just take care of the family. She studies childhood education at the university. In her limited spare time, she works as an animator at children's birthday parties.

Due to her illness Anna now also suffers from chronic cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder), chronic pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), diffuse liver changes and pathological splenomegaly (enlargement of the spleen). Without appropriate medication, this can be life-threatening for Anna.

Anna's brother Eugen attended vocational school and later wanted to study civil engineering at the university to become a master builder. He found a seasonal job and organized a stay by the sea for the whole family.

Anna's sister Natalia is studying at the college of education. In her free time, she volunteers in the Mission of Ukraine at the theater studio.

The family lives in a small house on 30 square meters without a toilet.
