Batbayar is 14 years old and the oldest brother to his siblings with his youngest brother only 8 months old, they were abandoned by their father and looked after by their single mother. Their living conditions in destitute and transient housing for most of the children’s young lives have caused significant physical and mental impacts on this young family. Batbayar is in year 9 and loves going to school along with his siblings but the unstable housing conditions make it extremely hard for him to maintain his studies. Batbayar and his family have been renting a dilapidated Ger for 6 years, finding minimal shelter from the harsh elements but the owner of the Ger now wants the property back forcing the family to live on the streets. Batbayar’s mother has pleaded for the owner to wait until after the harsh winter season has passed as they have nowhere else to go. Batbayar’s mother is unable to find stable work due to low skills, no qualifications. The total family income each month is $101 USD which is not enough to cover the families basic necessities let alone a new home.
The Give-a-Ger Programme was established in Mongolia by Christina Noble in 2001 to provide children and families living in horrifying circumstances new beautiful traditional Mongolian Ger homes to live in. In Ulaanbaatar, the coldest capital city in the world, with temperatures regularly reaching -30 C and -40 C, having a place of shelter from the elements is essential for survival but people living in extreme poverty have no choice but to find shelter under cold stairwells, dilapidated wooden coal sheds, or in run-down damaged gers. For many vulnerable people living in these harsh conditions, having the warmth and security of a home is just a dream but together, we can make this a reality.
With your help, Batbayar’s family will receive a sustainable, enduring, highest quality five-wall ger with a full set of furniture including sofas with expandable beds, table/desk, chairs, kitchen unit, wardrobe, drawers and a ger stove used for both cooking and for keeping the family warm. We purchase all of our gers from a well-known and reputable Mongolian company that uses only the best quality wood and insulating felt on the market. With your help, CNCF can support Batbayar’s family by providing them with a warm, comfortable and stable home out of the harsh winter cold this Christmas. By providing a home you not only provide safety and shelter but stability for the children to continue their education, better conditions for the health of the family and a beautiful home they so desperately need and truly deserve.

Please help us to reach our goal of $3,800 USD to support Batbayar and his family this Christmas,YOU can be a part of transforming this family’s life.
