The Choice to Freeze or Choke

Floare knew his family would not make it through the harsh Ukrainian winter without heat in their home. Discover how this Gypsy family found a way to survive. Read Transcript


WINTER IS A FUN TIME OF YEAR

BUT IT CAN BE A DIFFICULT TIME

TO SURVIVE.

WE'RE FREEZING. WE CAN'T

COVER YOURSELF BECAUSE WE HAVE

NO BLANKETS.

THIS OLD STOVE IS THE ONLY

SOURCE OF HEAT IN THIS HOME.

WE PUT A LOT OF WOOD INTO IT

AND CONSUMES IN MINUTES.

AS SOON AS THE FIRE GOES OUT

THERE IS NO WARMTH. IT IS

FREEZING COLD AGAIN.

BUT THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WHEN

WE USE IT THE SMOKE FILLS UP

THE

ENTIRE HOUSE.

THE CHILDREN GET SICK ALL

THE

TIME FROM BREATHING THE SMOKE,

HAVING NO HEAT OR WARM CLOTHES.

SHE'S SICK SO WE TOOK HER TO

THE HOSPITAL YESTERDAY. HE'S

SICK TOO AND THIS ONE HAS A

FEVER.

WE KNEW WE HAD TO DO

SOMETHING TO HELP THE FAMILY

SURVIVE THE HARSH WINTERS SO WE

INSTALLED NEW WINDOWS AND DOOR

AND A NEW STOVE THAT DOESN'T

SMOKE.

GAVE US CLOTHING AND

MEDICINE

FOR THE CHILDREN TOO. THE

JACKETS ARE SO WARM THEY CAN

GO

OUTSIDE NOW. WE ARE SO

THANKFUL.

THE NEW STOVE DOESN'T USE AS

MUCH WOOD SO I CAN SELL THE

EXTRA WOOD TO BUY FOOD.

OUR LIVES ARE SO MUCH

BETTER

NOW AND OUR CHILDREN NO LONGER

FREEZE. I PRAISE THE LORD FOR

THIS. THANK YOU.
