The loss of his beloved wife was a heavy blow for him, and the death of his daughter in 2021 finally broke him...
“If something happens to Grandpa, what will happen to us?” - the little orphan Elene asks me with a prayer in her eyes and continues - "I love my grandfather more than anything in the world, I cannot live without him", then she clings to her grandfather's sleeve and kisses him on the cheek.
“Our Grandfather is everything for us, if not for him, who knows where we would be"
Victor of Veshaguri is 64 years old. One year ago, the greatest misfortune befell him - at the age of 39 his only daughter died. It was very hard for the elderly Victor to cope with this grief, he’s hunched over and only half remained of him. His eyes learned to cry, and his heart learned to pray... Victor still secretly pours hot tears every day when he quietly and fervently prays at the portraits of his deceased wife and daughter.
No! He cannot remain like this - he cannot be weak and helpless in the eyes of three orphans. Having straightened his shoulders, he needed to engage in the upbringing of his little grandchildren. He should not make their pain caused by the loss of their mother more severe with his experiences, but on the contrary, he should be strong and become a mother, father, grandmother, and grandfather for children. Imagine how much strength you need for such an exploit...
“The difficulties I am experiencing become stiffer because I am old, and there is not much I can do...”
Victor, is it hard to you to cope with everything?
Victor (64-year-old): It is hard to me to come into terms that my daughter is no longer alive. You have no idea how much it hurts! I can’t hide this pain! Sometimes I think I'll go insane. Then I look at my grandchildren and realize that they need me. They have nobody else but me. In addition to all this, I can't do much anymore... I lost my job. I worked as a guard. The guard should stay at work at night! But I could not leave the children alone. Now I am their mother too! So, our family started having financial problems, we only hope for social allowance. This apartment is also rented, it is not ours... In the past 17 years, nothing good has happened, but I somehow coped. And now ... Now I can’t even buy food for children, we are in debt from month to month.
What happened 17 years ago?
Victor: My spouse got ill. I looked after her for 7 years. She was on dialysis. I sold everything I had, just to save her. But I could not... She died 10 years ago... We have been living in rented apartment for 11 years now. One year ago, the great misfortune happened to me - I lost my only child... Covid killed her... Why didn't it happen to me, why it chose her... Why? (His voice shakes. He tries to hold back his tears)
Mari (12-year-old): We had the best mother in the world. I find it very difficult to live without her. I often see my mom in my dreams, and she reminds me to look after my siblings, to look after my grandfather and to stand by him... I miss my mom so much... I miss her warm hands... (Cries)
Elene (8-year-old): I also miss my mother - she was very beautiful. I can show you her photos if you want... (Shows me)
Your mother is beautiful, indeed. You look like your mom, do you?
Elene: Everyone says so. But she was more beautiful...
"This is how I caress my mother's picture every day... I miss her..."
Mr. Victor, what happened to the children's father? You didn't say anything about him...
Victor: I don't even want to mention his name, my children only remember pain and hurt from him. He left the family, and married another woman... He escaped responsibility. He doesn't do anything for his children. This person was always only harmful, but I tolerated him because of my daughter. The children even had psychological problems due to his misbehavior. Mariam’s blood sugar raised higher than normal due to her nervousness. I don't want to remember everything!
You are experiencing financial problems - it is hard to live on the allowance only when you must feed three children. How do you manage to survive?
Victor: Our income is very meager, 650 GEL of social allowance. It has been one year since the orphan's pension of 300 GEL was assigned to the children and it is transferred to their father's account. Their father does not give us anything - he says that the bank cuts off this money because of the loan he took earlier. I swear, he didn't take this loan for his family, I didn't even know about it. Now I'm trying to get custody so that I can help the children with their money.
Children need normal beds very much
Luka needs to go swimming because of his spine. He needs to see a doctor. He has a weight problem. The child does not get normal food, but he still gains weight. I need to take care of that, don’t I? He has low immunity He catches colds all winter When one catches cold, then everyone catches cold too. But I can't even buy medications... My heart hurts because I cannot cope with all the problems properly. I am old and many things bother me too, but thank God, I'm on my feet. I try not to collapse.
Mariam: Our grandfather forgets about himself, he also has health problems, but he says nothing. He does not complain about anything if only everything were fine with us.
Your grandfather cooks food for you, does the cleaning, washes your things? Do you help him?
Luka (14-year-old): Of course, we do! I make tea for the children in the morning. I can also fry egg when we have them - I do it well.
Mariam: I help to tidy up.
Elene: I also help - if something didn't work out well, I tell them that mommy was doing it better...
You hurt their hearts with that, don’t you?
Elene: Why? Because I am saying the truth?
Sometimes the truth hurts person's hearts, you must encourage them and tell them that it is a very good job.
Elene: Sometimes I say that too!
"Grandpa, Pepi didn't have a mother like me. But she didn't have a grandfather either, right? But I have you!"
Mr. Victor, you need help with foodstuffs, and you probably need warm clothes for children - winter is coming. How else can we help you to make your life a bit better?
Victor: You are right - we need foodstuffs and warm clothes. We also really need a gas stove. Only one burner works on our stove, and it is also dangerous... Look - it hardly works.
"Only one burner works, and it works hardly"
Mariam: I really want to have a gas oven so I can bake something...
"I want to become an actor. I like to read poems artistically. I also write poems... Sometimes I read them to my grandfather"
Luka: I will also help, and Grandpa will teach us recipes.
You can find recipes on the YouTube as well.
Luka: Of course, if you have a computer and Internet. And I couldn't even attend online classes during Covid because I didn't have it... I fell behind and now I study twice as hard to catch up with my class in everything.
"That's how I look out the street - sometimes I think my mother will appear"
Elene: We also need a fridge, don’t we, grandpa? So that Elene could open it often... But a fridge should not be empty! Our fridge is old, malfunctioning and completely empty...
"This refrigerator is the only thing I have left from the past... And it got old like me... It doesn't work anymore"
Victor: Winter is coming, I have no idea how to warm ourselves - we really need a heater. My little chicks have such a low immunity... They catch colds easily. The heater will be a real relief for us. Luka needs to go swimming. He has a curvature of the spine. Swimming is so expensive... How am I supposed to pay for it when we don't have money for food... I wish someone godly would accept him for free to the swimming lessons. I would be grateful to him for a thousand years.
Elene: I want to go to singing lessons, but my grandfather doesn't have money for that either. And I am so good in singing! Do you want me to sing "Slava Ukraine" to you?
Little Elene sang songs about the glory of Ukraine, about the mother. We listened to this little girl with tears in our eyes and thought that no child should grow up in poverty and hunger. They should have all the support to become successful people, and their country would be proud of them!
