– my Whole childhood has been on survival, when my mother was single with four children and no father was in the picture, tells Esther Hvolby.

Esther and her family lived in Viby J in Aarhus, the mother was sick of a rheumatic disease and received disability benefits. That was why the money is small and there were many things that the family could not afford.

– You could well look at our clothes that we had not so much money, tells Esther.

– We got the food, but that was the easy and cheap food, and there was no advice for the holidays and excursions.

Up towards christmas, it became really clear that there was not a lot of money to do good with, and it set its mark in the family.

– My mother was very stressed, she was worried whether we could afford to have christmas, so she was not in the worlds best mood in november and december, tells Esther, who explains that Julehjælpen from the Danish people’s aid, therefore, made a tremendous difference.

– You can almost not describe it with words how much it meant.

Everyone was happy, then there was christmas and a very happy family, she tells of the moment when the family was told that they would receive Julehjælpen.

– If I remember rightly,so my mom got tears in her Youwin eyes, which she really tried never to show us the children, says Esther.

It has really meant a lot to Esther, that the family got Julehjælp, especially the gift certificate to the Sportmaster made a big difference in her life.

– I am trying to help my mother as well as I can.

She did what she could for us children,and I don’t think we could have had it better under the circumstances, with the money, tells Esther.
