In the north of Russia, in the tundra, the family "Yar" Nyala and Yaya.
They are representatives of the small ethnic group of "Nenets".
This people has long been living in endless snow where the temperature drops below -50, the winter lasts 8 months and the polar night lasts for 2 months, when the sun does not rise above the horizon, in dwellings called "Chum".
The basis for the survival of these peoples is fishing, reindeer herding and hunting in the summer, without it, it is very difficult to survive in the tundra. All this is usually done by men in the family, women at this time prepare food and sew clothes for the whole family.
In the family we are talking about - 4 children, the eldest son Izosim, the eldest daughter Inna, the youngest son Vladislav and the youngest daughter Nina.
They had a herd of deer behind which they watched and with whom they roamed the tundra. The state for breeding deer paid them subsidies for which they bought the necessary equipment, fuel and various cereals for food. In winter, they get water from an ice-hole on the river or simply they are drowning the snow which is full around.
In general, this family was a bright and successful representative of its nationality. But one day the head of the family died after a serious illness, by that time the eldest son was already quite an adult and had his own family, he has 4 children, he inherited deer from his father and continued his craft. But unfortunately his life was even shorter than that of his father. He died of a heart attack while fishing.
The second son could not take this responsibility on himself, he went blind at 6 years old.
Part of the herd was given to the husband of the eldest daughter, and the second part was given to the friend of the head of the family with whom they roamed the families together during the migration of deer.
The youngest daughter had to be operated on, since she was a disabled child and one leg was delayed in growth. For this it was necessary to get from the tundra to the nearest regional center where there are necessary specialists and this duty completely fell on the shoulders of the mother.
The path to the site of the operation consists of several stages. First you need to overcome 50 km along the tundra to the nearest settlement, village "Nosok ". There you need to enroll in a helicopter that will take you to the nearest city of "Dudinka". From there it is necessary by bus to get to the city of "Norilsk" where there is an Airport and already from the airport to fly to the regioinal center for the operation.
This route they overcame for 3 consecutive years to improve the condition of the youngest daughter.
If you had a chance to meet this family, it never occurred to you that they had experienced, they retain positive thinking, are sincerely happy when they see something new and boldly look to the future, do not worry about it.
This year they again came to the regional center to buy tarpaulins for the home and various spare parts for the equipment. Their motor boat collided with something under water and after that the engine began to seize. They can not bring it, and there it is also difficult to repair it, and this is for them almost the only way in summer to get to the village to buy food.
If we briefly describe the situation, it is a family without a father with two disabled children and four more young children from the deceased elder son who live in the tundra and who need money for food, housing and the purchase of necessary equipment that they can no longer afford.
