My Story

Ledjo is at present ten years old. He enjoys good health. Ledjo is attending the fourth grade at school in Katjel, not too far from home. He is doing well with the lessons and enjoys studying. Ledjo returns from school around midday and spends a part of his free time with his friends and as they gather they like to play football in the school field, the only place available to play this game. Ledjo likes to study and does his school homework during the evenings. Ledjo’s family of five persons lives in four rooms in a recent built home in Katjel. Their home offers appropriated living conditions to them. Ledjo in his family has his father, Lavdim, mother, Djana and an eighteen years old sister whose name is Egla. She is at present attending the university in Elbasan and is studying to be a nurse. Ledjo’s father, Lavdim is working in the chrome mine of the village. He and other people of this area are collecting this mineral individually and are selling it to the interested persons who come to collect it. This job is way too risky and the government has considered this mine a closed one. The father doesn’t receive any insurance doing this job. The family owns land and the mother is planting already a vegetable garden. They previously have planted wheat. The mother bakes the bread at home and uses the vegetables for self consumption. Through the wheat, the sock food for their cow is also provided. Djana, the mother cares to feed the cow for a few hours each day. She is gaining milk, yogurt and other products as cheese or butter for consumption in the family. The father is able to provide enough to cover the costs of the living for the family. Ledjo attends the feeding programme at Katjel. On Tuesdays the cooks are serving to the children pasta, sausages and fruits. On Fridays the cooks serve chicken, rice and fruits. The food is cooked in our base at Pogradec and transported to the villages. Ledjo and his friends enjoy these meals and attend the Bible classes. The teachers are leading the class to a time of singing and are teaching them by using Bible stories. At the end of each Bible lesson the children spend a while playing outside. During this season they have been able to play football a while longer as the weather has stayed dry. Ledjo same as all the children who attend the feeding programmes gains a free dental care once a year, offered at our dental clinic in Kotodesh. He is also frequenting the youth meeting at our centre in Katjel. The team visited the family to receive this information and present the gospel. The mother welcomed the team, but she wasn’t interested to hear the presentation.
