Reporter: 11 PEOPLE

LIVE IN THIS SMALL, TWO-ROOM

HOUSE IN WESTERN UKRAINE.

EVERY YEAR, WHEN THE HARSH

WINTER ROLLS IN, THE FAMILY

STRUGGLES TO SURVIVE.

OUR STOVE MAKES SO MUCH

SMOKE.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO USE IT

TO HEAT OUR HOME.

THERE WAS SO MUCH SMOKE

ONE TIME, EVERYBODY HAD TO

GET OUT OF THE HOUSE.

I WENT TO OPEN THE WINDOWS,

AND STARTED TO CHOKE.

Reporter: THE BAD STOVE

INTO THE ONLY PROBLEM THIS

FAMILY FACES IN THE COLD

WINTER.

WE HAVE NO SHOES AND NO

WARM CLOTHING TO PUT ON OUR

KIDS.

WE HAVE NOTHING.

I CAN'T SLEEP MOST NIGHTS

BECAUSE I'M SO COLD AND

WORRIED.

THE CHILDREN ARE ALWAYS

GETTING SICK.

OUR LIVES ARE SO HARD EVERY

DAY.

ALL I CAN DO IS TO HOPE FOR

A MIRACLE.

Reporter: EVANCA SAYS

EVERY NIGHT SHE PRAYS GOD

WILL HELP HER FAMILY.

WE HEARD HER STORY WHEN WE

WENT FOR A SPECIAL WINTER

OUTREACH.

WE GAVE MANY FAMILIES NEW

STOVES.

IT HELPS US SLEEP AT

NIGHT.

WE DIDN'T NEED LAYERS OF

CLOTHES.

IT WAS SO NICE AND WARM.

AND I COOKED ON THE

STOVE, AND IT WAS FAST AND

CONVENIENT AND WE HAD A

GOOD, HOT MEAL.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO

EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE.

I WISH YOU HEALTH AND

HAPPINESS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR

KINDNESS.

OUR CHILDREN WON'T GET

SICK NOW.

WE WILL SLEEP IN WARMTH.

WE THANK GOD FOR THIS.
