In 2010 Dalaikhuu fell ill with meningitis which has left him permanently disabled, unable to walk or sit alone and needing frequent medical treatment, and so his mother gave up work to care for him.
Last autumn, while Dalaikhuu and his mother were at the hospital for more medical treatment, the family’s ger was broken into, burgled and destroyed. Heartbroken at the loss of their home, they moved into rented accommodation but had to leave when they were unable to pay the rent, even though Egshiglen was working as a cleaner; a large amount of her monthly income is spent on medicines and treatments for Dalaikhuu. The family found state accommodation but were soon at risk of eviction there too, as they were again unable to pay the rent.
The family, with their severely disabled son, were likely to become homeless and turned to CNCF in desperation. After learning about their situation the family were overjoyed when, thanks to the generosity and love of one caring Donor we were able to immediately offer them a fully furnished ger.
On 8 September 2016 the CNCF team arrived to assemble the new four-section ger, and the family joined in with enthusiasm as their new home took shape.
The gers provided by the Foundation are of the highest quality and come complete with two sofas with expandable beds, cushions, table, chairs, kitchen unit with sink, large wardrobe, chest of drawers, mirror and the all important ger stove, used both for cooking and for keeping the family warm in winter.
“We were hardly able to survive because we had no money for rented accommodation and our neighbours scolded us for Dalaikhuu’s health problems. But now we are very happy because we have a fully furnished ger. Dalaikhuu can practice his walking in the ger and he will be able to have some treatments at home.”
