You are our angels from Heaven!

These words are addressed to you, friends! Be happy!

We were threatened with starvation... – Maka begins to wail from the threshold. And You came and saved my children like in a fairy tale!

Friends, look at the photos, do you recognize the lonely and selfless mother-heroine of four children, a true Georgian, Maka? Don't you think so? Her sick, younger son, Petre, has even cheered up! 

Now, the family that we found just three months ago in these ruins is upbeat and looking forward to the future with hope! And the children are full and smiling! And all this is thanks to your kind and responsive hearts! Thanks to the fact that the Georgian people are the noblest, they will never leave their compatriots in trouble! 

If it weren't for you... – Tears of joy flow like a stream from Maka's eyes... – Oh, if it weren't for you and your mercy… I would have had to stand with my hand outstretched! That's for sure! With a sick child that I have no one to leave with! Thank the Almighty for sending you to us so in time! God grant you strength and health, you work wonders! – Almost sobs the poor single mother and raises her hands to the sky… 

Your help came in handy. If it weren't for you and the generous friends of your Fund, I don't know that we would have eaten at all. The social allowance and Petre's disability pension doesn't last even for a month. My eldest son, Lado, lost the little money he could earn during the pandemic. He is still studying, and helps me around the house! After my husband left us, it was he who took on the burden that was too much for a 19-year-old boy, and took responsibility for our entire family… 

Now, I know for sure, we are not alone! You and our good compatriots gave us a helping hand and literally saved us! I will never get tired of praying for all of you!

 – Tell me, how has your life changed after we published an article about you?

Maka: Our life has not just changed, it has turned 180 degrees! My children, for the first time in many years, have had their fill! You came when I was finally tired of fighting for existence,and was almost ready to give up. When the quarantine was declared, even wealthy families faced financial difficulties! The Georgians are a holy nation! They are ready to take off and give their last shirt or last piece of bread to save their neighbor, even if they have to remain hungry! 

No one knew about our trouble until you published it. Thanks to you, people have learned how much we need help, and who knows, they may have torn the last penny from their hearts and given it to us. They divided the last piece of bread between their own and my children! 

You can't imagine how grateful I am to everyone! I will pray day and night for everyone who gave me a shoulder in this difficult time for the entire population of Georgia!

– Maka, what do you remember the most? Do you remember the names of the people who helped you?

Maka: I've heard that your Fund really helps people… But to which extent? After your article, people called even just to support me, apologizing if they could not come and provide financial assistance… Can you imagine? They apologized!

Unfortunately, I didn't remember the names… I was confused… Let everyone forgive me and know that I pray for them every single day! 

‎Kor Standard Bank has really helped us, they brought a huge mountain of products, and even paid our debt for gas and electricity… Otherwise my children would have to sit in the cold and the dark apartment... Thank you very much for your attention and care. I don't know how to thank you…

A whole family came; they brought us food; another young man... I'm sorry, I don't remember the names, but from now on, they will always be in my heart!

Recently, a woman called and credited us 80 lari, and then a very young girl gave 70 lari.

Separately, I want to say a huge thank you to your employee, Nino. I guess if I had a real sister, she wouldn't have supported me so much… So many products, attention, support and warmth from her, this is a real miracle! May God bless her and all her family! I will never forget her kindness!

– Did the local authorities react to our post in any way? Did they help you in any way?

Maka: Unfortunately, no, even during the quarantine, no one, absolutely no one from the local authorities remembered us…

– Tell me about your emotions, Maka.

Maka: When your employees came and promised to help us, to be honest, I didn't believe it… But it turns out that miracles happen! After so many disappointments and suffering, I once again believed that there is good on earth, and there are many people in the world who are ready to help others. You returned us our faith!

I will never forget the eyes of my children when you brought a huge amount of food. And not only you, but also complete strangers to us! In the eyes of the guys, there was everything: amazement, happiness, delight... Boundless happiness… From the fact that someone other than their own mother took care of them… They had never seen so much food… Except in a store. The kids just couldn't believe it was all for us!

And the TV?! When your representatives brought it to us, we were ready to hug and kiss them! The children just dreamed of it... They wanted at least a small, old TV… They are cut off from the outside world… And here, such a big screen! The children were afraid to touch it, as if it might disappear like a mirage…

A washing machine, a blender… This was my dream!!! You know what it's like to do laundry for five people, in winter, in icy water! My hands turn blue, red, and crack… I just can't feel them… Now the washing machine does the job for me, and I'm just happy!

– What does this help and support mean to you personally?

Maka: You have significantly eased our situation, despite my son's illness, I was able to take a deep breath for the first time in many years and felt that someone still needs me and my children! I again believed that all was not lost. And that our generous and noble compatriots, the Georgians, are close to me! 

– Petre, tell us, please, which of the gifts did you like the most? 

Petre (10 years old): The TV; I've been dreaming of it… We've all been dreaming of it! Me, my brothers, and my sister! Now we can watch cartoons and interesting programs about nature and animals! The TV is big, and they are there like real!

Ketevan (14 years old): And how much food was brought to us!

Georgiy (12 years old): Yes, Yes! So many sweets! Lots of them! We've never eaten so much! And some of them we have never tried!

Ketevan (14 years old): I'm glad you gave our mother a washing machine… She was washing everything with her hands, and she wouldn't let me help her, and her hands were cracking until they bled!

– Guys, what else do you need for happiness?

Georgiy (12 years old): Katie, you tell…

Ketevan (14 years old): We want Petre to be healthy! We adore him, we want him to be like everyone else, and that nothing hurts him!

Georgiy (12 years old): Yes, to make our brother healthy… And also… Many, many more sweets! (laughs)

– Maka, tell me, do you have any other problems that our readers can help you solve? 

Maka: You saved us, how can I ask for anything more? I even have some more food left that you and the good people brought us… 

Just please don't forget us… I can't work, because of the child's illness, he constantly needs care. And my eldest son, who is still quite a child himself, can't cope with this heavy burden… In my soul, there is still a fear that not today or tomorrow my children will be hungry and cold again… Sooner or later, we will run out of food, and I have absolutely no one to rely on but you!

I thank everyone individually, and the Lord for the fact that there is so much good in the world, and for the fact that your joint forces did not let us perish! May God grant you all health and well-being!
