    Story

    We are raising funds to help two young beautiful children get there life back on track. We want to be able to get clothes and toys for these children aged 8 & 10.

    A mum and her husband went on holiday to Bulgaria with her 2 young children and loved it there so much they decided to move there permanently.

    In January 2015 baby number 3 is on the way. However she has diabetes and is insulin dependant. Being pregnant she spent a lot of time in and out of hospital and her husband persuaded her to move back to the UK until after the baby was born. She was persuaded to leave her two other children in Bulgaria with her husband (their dad) due to her needing fequent hospital visits and stays and this would make life hard with looking after them being alone in the UK.

    Upon returning to the UK she got the help she needed and her baby was born. Although both were very ill and needed additional support to get there health back on track.

    Whilst being back in the UK with a new baby and having to manage with ill health and an ill baby her husband told her he no longer wanted to be with her. In the meantime he had Moved his secret girlfriend into their family home in Bulgaria. The girlfriends daughter also moved in with them.

    From this time her husband would not let her see, speak or visit her 2 older children. He hasn’t even met his newborn baby.

    She was contacted by some of the people that lived in the same village in Bulgaria to say that her 2 children were looking uncared for and that her husband now has a new baby with his girlfriend.

    In October 2018 the children were sent to school in the morning and were not told that they were being collected by a Bulgarian social worker as their Dad had requested that they be put into an orphanage.

    In May 2019 their Mum landed in Bulgaria and was reunited with her 2 children, her 10 year old daughter and 8 year old son who she hadn‘t seen or spoken to for 4 years. They both got to meet their little sister for the first time.

    They are now all safely back in the UK and living together as a family, although this hasn’t been easy and they have had some challenges to overcome.

    They don’t have much in the way of clothes or toys and we are now looking to help this family with essential things to help get their life back on track in the UK.

    If you are able to donate anything at all no matter how big or small. There will be 2 young children and a mum that will be extremely grateful.
