Barely Escaped the Fire, But Dying from Hunger, Cold, Heat, and Diseases! The Most Unfortunate Ones! It's Our Duty to Ensure These Children Don't Feel Like Outcasts in Their Homeland — Georgia!
REPOST RIGHT AWAY, MY GOOD MAN! HELP YOUR FRIENDS TO GET CLOSER TO THE WORK OF MERCY!
For three months now, Ketevan and her children have been sifting through ashes, hoping to find even a spoon or a plate that survived the fire, but alas, the fire consumed everything! In February 2023, a single spark left the Maziashvili family homeless, adding more problems to their already chaotic lives. Six people were left on the streets. All that remains from their once bitter life are charred walls and ashes...
- Ketevan, how are you doing now? David showed me the rooms and could barely hold back his tears!
Ketevan: There is nothing left of our home. I will never forget that dreadful day. We were at the funeral of our relative in another village. Giorgi didn't want to come with us, he said he wasn't feeling well. He chose to remain at home, and throughout the day, my heart was filled with a sense of unease. Giorgi, despite his age and height, is just like a little child. (Note: Georgiy has developmental delays. He is 15 years old.)
When our neighbor called me, I immediately asked if everything was alright with Giorgi, and I heard only those words, "Giorgi is alive, but..." When we arrived, the house was still smoldering... Giorgi was at the neighbors' place. My Lord, I will never stop thanking You for leading him out of the house at that time! You saved my son! Because if it had been just a few more seconds, perhaps he wouldn't have made it out, the roof would have collapsed right on him and buried my son under a pile of ashes! I simply have no words to express our state. I can't even cry anymore. You can't imagine, every little thing in this house was precious to us. We saved money for years to put our house in order, we even took a loan in 2014 and did everything with our own hands...
- Did they manage to determine the cause of the fire?
Ketevan: According to Giorgi, he felt cold and turned on the gas stove, which apparently was malfunctioning. In the evening, his neighbor called him, and when he went out into the yard, the fire seemed to spread within minutes. Does it matter now how it all happened? It doesn't change the situation. We have no house anymore, but Giorgi is alive, and that's what matters most. There's no point in lamenting and crying. God saved us, and He will help us not to starve or freeze.
- Where are you currently living?
Ketevan: The state rented this space for us for 200 lari and allocated 5000 lari to cover the roof repairs. But this money is not nearly enough. As soon as we can raise the necessary amount with God's help and yours, we will start fixing the roof and repairing the walls. Our income is the allowance we receive. I work as a cleaner and earn 200 lari per month, and my husband sometimes helps with local farms when they need help with grape harvesting. They pay very little there too. We can't even afford to feed ourselves, let alone build a house right now!
Giorgi (15-year-old): You know, I had my own room. I used to hide in there from everyone. But then nothing was left. I had books with fairy tales... I love fairy tales about "comble" and "Cinderella," my mom used to read them to me. And sometimes I would read them myself too.
Nikoloz (11-year-old): I don't know... I miss my room. I miss it a lot. And also I miss my ball and my phone - I had such a good ball.
- What were you dreaming about? How did you imagine your life?
Nikoloz (11-year-old): I wanted to become a football player... But now I don't know what I'll become. I thought I would start going to football practice, that my mom would buy me boots and a uniform. That I would play better than everyone else.
- What happened to your leg?
Nikoloz (11-year-old): Don't tell anyone... I fell from a tree. It would have been better to get injured while playing football, but it's fine... the doctor said it will heal soon, but for now, I have to rest... and it's hard for me to lie still and do nothing. There's not even a TV to watch something interesting... so I spend the whole day staring at the ceiling!
- What do you remember the most after the fire?
Nikoloz (11-year-old): I remember how the whole village helped us. How they comforted us and gave us clothes. How they brought warm blankets. It turns out that people are so kind! I will thank everyone when I grow up and start working! I want to help others just like Ronaldo. He was poor, but then became a millionaire and helps all the poor people!
Ketevan: If it weren't for kind people, we probably wouldn't even be alive. I thank them all, pray for them, but I also want to express my gratitude through you! They will all read our story, so I want to confess my love to them!
- Ketevan, what do you think you need the most right now? You have already endured the winter, so what is your main problem at the moment?
Ketevan: We have money to fix the roof, but I can't ask for big things. Maybe someone can help with dishes, clothes, beds... The children really need tablets and school supplies.
Nikoloz (11-year-old): And a bicycle! And a ball! And football boots!
Ketevan: And if God grants us the opportunity and we repair the roof, we will need windows and doors. I won't mention food, but it's so embarrassing to look everyone in the eye...

Friends, the Maziashvili family has lost everything. Their home, belongings, everything they had earned through years of hard work—all was consumed by fire. They have nothing left. The spouses find themselves living under the open sky with their children, barely fitting in the limited space they have. They receive help from neighbors and acquaintances, but their conscience doesn't allow them to solely rely on the kindness of others. They desperately need our support!
The Maziashvili family is in need of any assistance, the most basic necessities, as they essentially have to start their lives from scratch. Their immediate needs include food, utensils, construction materials, appliances, beds, a table, chairs, and tablets for the children.There is also a special request for a bicycle, ball, and football boots!*
