Thanks to Holt donors, a family sick with COVID in Mongolia received emergency food and medicine.
Chinua and her family usually had enough to eat. But when her whole family got sick with COVID-19, they suddenly needed urgent help.
Chinua and her entire family of five were quarantined at home. Her mom couldn’t work and they had no savings, so they had no money for food or even medicine. And even if they could afford it, they weren’t allowed to leave.
That’s when Chinua’s mom called Holt Mongolia for help. And because of your support, Chinua’s mom was told, “Yes. We can help you!”
The very next day, Chinua and her family received a package of food and medicine.
As Chinua’s mom received the package, she broke down in tears — thanking Holt donors over and over again for the lifesaving support.
“For many families,” says a Holt Mongolia social worker, “there is no other lifeline. Without this support, there would be little food, and no medicines. But as long as we are there, for families like this one, there will always be hope.”
Because of you, Chinua and her family had the lifesaving food and medicine they needed to recover — and to have hope through their darkest time.
Throughout the pandemic, Holt donors have offered a lifeline to so many children and families around the world who were sick or hungry. Learn more about giving lifesaving food or medicine to a family in need.
