OUR SPONSORED CHILD – ERGI MUCOBEGA

Using the money donated for tea and coffee following our Sunday Morning Service we sponsor a child through the Christian charity World Vision. Our sponsorship commitment with World Vision began in late 2014. Since January 2020 we have sponsored Ergi Mucobega who is 8 years old and his birthday is on the 14th of September.

Ergi lives in Shkodra in Northern Albania with his parents who are both unemployed. Ergi goes to primary school and is currently in Year 2. His favourite subject is the local language. At home, Ergi helps his mother and when he does have free time he loves playing ball games.

Ergi is sponsored as part of the World Vision Shkodra Area Development Programme. The project is based in a large and growing city which is home to over 70,000 families. There is very high unemployment and, due to lack of arable land and lack of access to markets, agriculture in this region is low.

The money we provide will transform the life of children in Shkodra by giving them clean water, nutritious food, healthcare, education and a way to earn a living – so they can enjoy a childhood free from need and full of promise.
