Surgery Support

Waulfred Humberto is an 8-year-old boy from Guatemala and he currently attends the third grade. Several years ago, as Waulfred began to get taller, he complained of pain in his right leg. Waulfred’s loving mother quickly followed up with pediatrician appointments and soon Waulfred was diagnosed with fibular hemimelia, a bone condition where the leg bone does not grow as fast or as long as it should.

This means Waulfred has constant pain because he cannot stand evenly on both legs. However, this does not prevent him from playing soccer with his friends. Waulfred has a great sense of humor, he is friendly toward everyone, and has many close friends. He also attends church regularly and he likes to learn about the word of God. Waulfred said that reading the Bible makes him feel closer to God. For several years Waulfred and his mother have gone to Chatham Orthopedics for appointments to help soothe the discomfort, but he needs surgery. Waulfred and his mother hoped that the Department of Public Health and Children’s Medical Services would partly cover the cost of the surgery but Waulfred’s case did not qualify for financial support to cover the cost of the surgery. Waulfred is uninsured and has no other means to pay for the surgery that he desperately needs. Waulfred’s mother is a single mother and works very hard to provide for her two sons. Waulfred’s mother is very patient, dedicated, loving, optimistic, and has a profound faith in God. She believes with all the strength in her heart, that her son will receive the surgery.

90 Piece Drilling Set

This request comes from one of our Catholic Charities Community Service clients, Dmytro Petchenko. Dmytro is a refugee from Kyiv, Ukraine, fleeing the Russian invasion. He is here with his wife, Irina, who came to New York five months earlier than him.

After being reunited with his wife after a long separation, Dmytro is eager to start rebuilding his life in America. He has already applied for and is waiting to receive his work authorization to start supporting his family here. In Ukraine, Dmytro worked as a hockey coach, and he would love to come back to this job of his – because he loves working with children and promoting sports. However, as he is looking for opportunities to resume coaching, he is also considering the job of a repairman as a temporary position to gain some sort of financial stability and provide an income to his family. Dmytro is currently applying for courses that would help him be a better handyman, but these courses require equipment. Dmytro is thus kindly asking The Hearts you Hold to support his new endeavor by providing this equipment. Thank you so much for your support!

Bra 1

One of our Catholic Charities clients, Zoya, is requesting some pieces of undergarments for herself. She is a refugee from Ukraine, having been forced to flee at the start of the Russian invasion. Once in America, she immediately applied for her work authorization.

She received the official document last week and is overjoyed. She is now actively looking for a job. Unfortunately, with limited English skills, this process is proving to be difficult, but Zoya is not giving up. Right now, she is living with a sponsor but will have to leave their apartment in two weeks. Having no place to go, and no current income, Zoya is struggling to pay for basic clothing needs, such as some pieces of undergarments. Please consider supporting Zoya as she is adjusting to her new life in the US.

Washer and Dryer

Three middle-aged women from Mexico are living in a rental house near Burlington, Vermont. They are all supporting children and other family members in Mexico, where they come from. The women all clean houses for a living.

They have all lived in Vermont for several years. Their rental house does not have a washer and dryer, which is a hardship considering their long work hours and responsibilities. They can buy a reconditioned and reliable washer and dryer at Goodwill in Williston.

Bed Frame

Over recently moved to the U.S. to reside with his mom, his little brother, and his step-father after being separated for about two years. Bessy is a homemaker and stays at home to provide full-time supervision to her youngest son, who was born prematurely along with having vision and hearing deficits;

he is largely non-verbal and gets sick easily. Bessy is often visiting hospitals to follow up with medical care needed for her youngest child. The family only has one income, from Bessy’s partner, and it is barely enough to cover living expenses and medical care for the youngest child. With limited financial resources, the family is saving up to provide Over with essential items. Currently, Over has a mattress that is placed on the floor. A bed frame is needed to make his sleeping situation more comfortable. Unaccompanied children served by Catholic Charities Atlanta are children who cross our borders and have no parent or legal guardian who is available to provide for their care and physical custody. For a limited number of Unaccompanied Children, the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement funds home studies and post-release services by social services providers to help ensure children are released into safe placements and to facilitate family and community integration after reunification.

Lunbox w/ Thermos

One of our Catholic Charities clients, Yuliia, requested this lunch box for her daughter. Yuliia is a refugee from Ukraine, staying in America with her two daughters, Kateryna (14) and Mariia (8). They were forced to flee at the start of the Russian invasion on the B1 tourist visa that they had in their passports– before the U.S.

announced the start of the Uniting for Ukraine program. Once in America, they immediately applied for TPS – a temporary immigration status provided to nationals of specifically designated countries that are confronting a crisis such as an ongoing war - and an authorization for work. As the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is reviewing their request, the family does not have a way to access any of the public benefits – such as SNAP and cash assistance and does not have a source of income. Yuliia, Kateryna, and Mariia are currently living in a family shelter, and Yuliia has signed her daughters up for school and after-school programs. To make sure her younger daughter, Masha, is able to enjoy warm food after her classes and before her afterschool activities, Yuliia is requesting this container that will keep the food that she packs for her daughter warm. Please consider supporting Yuliia and her daughters as they are adjusting to their new life in the US.

Bicycle

YZLS is a 17-year-old child, who recently arrived in Miami, Florida, and is living with his older sister, nieces, and nephews. YZLS left his home country Guatemala to receive higher education and the opportunity to have a successful future. He and his family come from a very poor area in Guatemala, where they speak Guatemalan Dialect, Mam.

YZLS traveled along with his brother and was kidnapped in Mexico during his journey to come to the United States. After three months of being kidnapped, YZLS was able to escape and safely arrived in Texas. YZLS found a part-time job, where he works as a carpenter from 7 am until 12 pm. After work, he is attending adult education courses near his home and hopes to get his GED. Unfortunately, the family does not have a car and the minor takes the metro-rail to get to work, home, and school daily. The minor attends school during the week from 6 pm until 9 pm. This bike will help him get around safely without having to travel on the metro-rail alone throughout the day and it will assist the family in ensuring he arrives at his destination safely.

Laptop w/ Sleeve

The family that we are requesting this laptop for arrived in the United States from Afghanistan about three years ago. The student in the family is starting his freshman year of high school but is lacking adequate technology to study and complete his assignments on time. Instead of having to rely on school and library computers, the student can study from the comfort of their home with this laptop.

This computer was selected because it has the greatest amount of RAM and can help with accessing e-books for the student to supplement their goals in improving their reading level. Catholic Charities Atlanta serves refugee and immigrant families during their first few years in the United States. Many of the families we serve come from Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Central-East Africa, and Central America. This laptop would help an amazingly resilient family on their way to a brighter future! Thank you!

Youth Winter Boots

Jennifer Caicedo Hurtado is a Refugee from Colombia who fled her homeland with her young children along with her husband. Jennifer and her children have been in rental arrears for a couple of months due to her husband not having employment. The monthly rent in the apartment is about $2,450.00 and they struggle to make ongoing payments on a monthly basis.

The family has had to enter the shelter to avoid eviction proceedings. The client would love to have four pairs of boots because the children are in need of the boots for the upcoming winter season. It’s important to note that the client has four minor children and her husband is unemployed. This donation would be so appreciated by Jennifer and her family, thank you for your consideration!
