Single father with 4 kids

My name is Ilfat Akhunzeanov. In December 2015 my four children (Arthur (8), Alia (7), Amir (4), Milana (2))
and I lost our beloved mother and wife Lilya. It happened so suddenly that we still cannot believe it happened. Doctors said it was leukemia; however, she was never diagnosed with it before. Lilya was a brilliant person, oneof most kind and selfless person I ever know. She always put others' needs above her own.  By being NGO leader Lilya was regularly taking care of hundreds of orphan kids for many years. At the same time, all her family is living in one room of three-room apartment that belongs to her relatives in Chisinau, Moldova (small country in Eastern Europe where we from).

My wife and I had many dreames and plans for us and for our kids. We dreamed that one day we will build our own little house, a place where we will grow old and see our kids grow, welcome our grandchildren and see them play and run around. But instead God had other plans. Of course no one can replace the lost of mother to our children, her mother's warmth and love; however, maybe you can help to find them their own shelter, where children could enjoy childhood. The place where they can grow and feel our love while their father is able to work and provide them with all the rest. During future years they can grow feeling our spiritual and moral support. I already have some amount of money, but not enough. We would be always grateful to those who would contribute. 

God bless you
