Look into the eyes of these innocent children ?! How sad and frightened they are of everyday insecurity and everyday life! No joy, no bright colors, no lumen in their life!
Do they have a chance of normal development? Will they be able to grow up as worthy citizens of their country? If these children remain in this state, the answer will be negative. Unfortunately, nobody cares about them - neither the village administration, nor the municipal deputy, nor the public of the region.
Thank God, while they are generally healthy! God forbid something happens to them, because the parents have no chance to cure them. The father of the family is unsuccessfully looking for work, the mother is in complete despair, and the children, these charming innocent creatures, suffer the most! How is all this painfully familiar ?!
We talked with Tamta Chitinashvili, the mother of four minor children living in the village of Sakobo of the Signakhi municipality:
-Tamta, what is the main problem of your family?
Tamta: husband can not find a job. By profession he is a worker, but where he didn’t go, he receives the same answer everywhere - there are no empty seats. So we live without income. We don’t have a plot of land to sow something and sell it. We live very poorly, children are constantly undernourished, walk in rags.
-That for example, what do children eat? What is their daily diet?
Tamta: beans, greens, bread, watery soup ... In 2015, the issuance of social benefits was suspended. 6 months almost starved. Thank God, we are now receiving social benefits. This is a miser, but there is enough bread and utilities. We have to somehow dodge ...
- The house in which you live your own?
Tamta: this is my husband's parental home. It is so old that it is about to fall apart. The ground floor is absolutely not habitable. Upstairs - the rooms rather big, but completely unsettled. The walls, as you can see, are shabby, covered with mold, our furniture is old, there is no washing machine, the refrigerator is antediluvian, it barely works. In winter we drown the stove, if the husband is able to collect dry branches somewhere ...
- Does anyone help you? Did you seek help from a member of your constituency or municipality?
Tamta: I did not appeal to the deputy. Our village is very poor, everyone needs everything around us, and the village administration does not have the budget at all to help the poor. People are trying to leave the village, but what to do?
-Why don't you contact a deputy of your constituency? That's just in his power to intercede with the Sighnaghi City Hall to resolve your problems. This factor cannot be ignored, for helping voters is the direct responsibility of every deputy. But if they do not help, then we will write about it on our Facebook page, which has more than half a million readers, and let him be ashamed of his inaction.
Tamta: Thank you so much for your foundation! I am very grateful that you came to our rescue!
“I see that you are a believer, as there are many icons on the wall ...”
Tamta: I am a parishioner of a local church. I pray constantly. I ask the Lord for the happiness of my children so that they do not go hungry, that they have a roof over their heads and the opportunity to learn. When I go to bed - I ask only one thing from God - to help me feed my children.
-There are people who say that "you can not have children, when there are no funds for their maintenance." How do you feel about such a statement?
Tamta: I believe that every normal person, and especially Orthodox, should strive to continue his own kind. Family is mutual love, help and support. When I was fourth pregnant, I wanted to have an abortion, and the priest said to me: “Look at your three children. Can you kill them? No you can not. Therefore, should give birth and fourth. Such is the will of God! ”
-What is your biggest dream?
Tamta: my husband and I dreamed of having a big family, having babies, raising them happy. We met in a country club during a film show. Fell in love so that they could not imagine life without each other. Since then, 15 years have passed. Of course, I still dream about the happiness of my children, but at this stage - my dream comes down to only one thing - how to survive these difficult times. I believe that the Lord will not leave!
“And now I’ll talk to the children.”
- Nika, what grade are you in and what is your favorite subject?
Nika (13 years old): I study in 8th grade. I love geography very much.
-What do you dream about? I dream to have a bike and books on geography. We have practically no books at home, and I really love to read.
-And you help mom?
Nick: Of course, I'm helping. I look for my little sister, chop wood, clean the room ...
-Dmitry, and what class are you in and what are you dreaming about?
Dmitry (9 years old): I am in 4th grade and I dream to have a piano. I love music very much, but there is no music circle at school ...
-Mariam, and you go to the garden? About what
you are dreaming?
Mariam (6 years old): yes, I go to kindergarten .... I dream about a beautiful dress and toys ... Mom says that money to buy new clothes ...
