The beautiful landscape and rich farmland of Ukraine's Transcarpathian region is in stark contrast to the poverty and despair of the people who live here. They are gypsies --ostracized, distrusted, and denied education and jobs.

Yeva is a young gypsy woman whose husband left her with four young children to raise. Yeva says there is no clean water to drink and that she bathes her children and cooks their food in filthy water.

Five hundred people live in Yeva's camp. All of them drink contaminated water. Yeva described the water as dark and muddy. She says her children get horrible stomach aches after drinking it.

Yeva's son says his stomach hurts often because of the water. He says he must drink it because he has nothing else.

When CBN's Orphans Promise heard about the dire conditions in Yeva's camp, a new well was drilled in a matter of days. Yeva says their lives changed greatly since the well was drilled. They now have clean water to drink, to bathe their children, and wash their clothes.

To provide Yeva and her children with a source of food, we taught Yeva and other families in the village how to farm their own land. With abundant food from her garden, Yeva and her children will never go to bed hungry again.

Her son sends his thanks to the people who brought clean water to their village. Yeva says that their garden will now provide abundant food -- lots of vegetables and fruit and good health. She also sends her heartfelt thanks.
