We would like you to meet our partner family. They are truly partners as we build this home because they work right along side of us and will continue working to finish the details on their home after our team has returned to Germany. We wanted to introduce them to you on a more personal level.
Mihai makes ceramic heaters and Mona works in a shoe factory. They have had to spend most of their marriage living with parents because they have not had enough money to be able to afford their own home. Their daughter Karyna has needed multiple surgeries. These medical expenses have absorbed most of the money that they earn.
When Mihai was informed that they were accepted for a Habitat home, he excitedly stayed up all night making plans. Mona expresses gratitude to the volunteers, who she says are helping them fulfill a dream. She could not believed they would have their own house! Already she has decided how she wants to arrange the kitchen and where to put the children’s beds. “And every time I think of this, it brings tears to my eyes,” she said.
