How long can one survive on moldy bread and water? We have nothing to feed our son! The worst trial is to watch your child cry from hunger!

These are the words of a young woman, Natia Toliashvili, the mother of Alexander, who can't find a moment of peace due to his hunger. He hasn't eaten for days, and to curb his hunger, his mother feeds him tea! Yes, you heard that right – tea is the only edible thing they have. Well, there's also the bread from which Natia scraped off all the mold, and the bread doesn't seem as daunting now. But the smell and taste don't vanish. And the little one clings to it and bites it fiercely. This will be his only treat until they receive assistance. For the next few days, his mother will prepare porridge, boil pasta, maybe even manage to make soup with cabbage and greens... and after that, it's back to bread and tea... and his mother's songs, an attempt to shift her son's attention even for a brief moment.

How long can one survive on moldy bread and water? We have nothing to feed our son! The worst trial is to watch your child cry from hunger!

PLEASE SHARE IMMEDIATELY, KIND PERSON! HELP YOUR FRIENDS TO APPROACH A GOD-PLEASING DEED!

"Can you believe it, will my son survive? I fed him bread covered in mold... there was nothing else. I tried my best to remove all the mold, soaked the bread in tea, and fed him... he was crying so much, struggling, I feared he might suffocate... I fed him, but now I'm worried. He won't die, right?"

The little one clings to the old bread. He can't chew it and doesn't let his mom soak it in water

These are the words of a young woman, Natia Toliashvili, the mother of Alexander, who can't find a moment of peace due to his hunger. He hasn't eaten for days, and to curb his hunger, his mother feeds him tea! Yes, you heard that right – tea is the only edible thing they have. Well, there's also the bread from which Natia scraped off all the mold, and the bread doesn't seem as daunting now. But the smell and taste don't vanish. And the little one clings to it and bites it fiercely. This will be his only treat until they receive assistance. For the next few days, his mother will prepare porridge, boil pasta, maybe even manage to make soup with cabbage and greens... and after that, it's back to bread and tea... and his mother's songs, an attempt to shift her son's attention even for a brief moment.

Natia: Just last month, my little boy had a severe sore throat, with plenty of pus. The doctor prescribed so many medications that we couldn't even afford to buy them all. We managed to buy only the most essential ones, and then our assistance ran out. And Alexander gets sick very often. How could he not? He grew up eating only bread.

"When my husband hears the word 'mom,' tears well up in his eyes"

- And isn't there anyone helping you? How do you even survive?

Natia: There's no one to help us. My husband grew up in an orphanage. He doesn't have any blood relatives in this world. He was left at an infant home, and he doesn't even know what it's like to feel parental warmth. And when he hears the word "MOM," tears well up in his eyes. He has told me many times that he would be the happiest person if he simply knew who his parents were. He doesn't even know their names. It's as if everyone conspired not to tell him. For him, family is sacred. Do you know how much he loves us? He works physically day and night to buy diapers and bread... but there isn't always work available. That's why we sometimes have to go hungry.

"We all fit on this broken bed, the three of us"

- And your parents?

Natia: I have a mother and a sick brother – he's in a wheelchair. They're unfortunate. They can't help us in any way. They can barely make ends meet themselves. We lived with my mother for a while, but she also has just one room. And living there became unbearable. It's hard for my brother to hear the baby cry all day long. That's when God sent us this kind person who allowed us to stay in this building for a while. Sometimes strangers do so much good for you!

"This building serves as our toilet, and for that, we're grateful"

- It's good that you have a roof over your head.

Natia: Exactly. We have a roof and nothing else. No toilet, no bathroom... Look at where we sleep. We don't even have chairs. But don't think that I'm troubling you about furniture. I need food and diapers for my son. That's it! If I have a few months' worth of food stocked up, and he won't cry from hunger, I'll be the happiest woman.

"My little bread, and I won't give it to anyone"

- Natia, you're still so young! When did you become a mother?

Natia: You're right! I was 19 years old. I met my husband at a boarding school. He was studying there, and so was I. He's 7 years older than me. We became very good friends. When I first heard his sad story about his family, or rather how he was abandoned, I felt so sorry for him. I wanted to hug him and never let go. So he could feel some warmth at least. Our friendship turned into love, and then we started a family. At first, my mother was very against it. She said I'd ruin my life, but then she saw how hardworking Georgy was, how skillful he was with his hands, and she blessed our union.

"I didn't think family life would be this tough!"

- Did you imagine your life this way?

Natia: No! I thought everything would be different. I thought I would start a family and live like in a fairy tale. But it turned out to be much more complicated. Love alone won't provide for you. And you can't cure a child with it. I really wanted to become a stylist, to work, to create even a small corner of happiness for myself... but it wasn't meant to be.

"When you look at this little angel, how can you regret anything at all... just look at how beautiful he is when he's not crying"

- Do you have regrets?

Natia: Sometimes, when my son goes hungry for days and there's nothing to feed him, when I have to wash dirty diapers... that's when I wonder if I rushed into things. But then I'll hug my son and my husband, and I realize that this is my life and we'll definitely get through it. I dream that when I can take Alexander to daycare, I'll still study to become a stylist and work. I'll help my husband, and life won't be so difficult. But those are all dreams... before that, we have to somehow survive... that's why I reached out to you.

"Why did they put my bread so far away? I want to eat it"

- How can we help?

Natia: First and foremost, if you could help us with food for my child, so he doesn't have to eat whatever he finds. I want to be at ease, knowing he won't die of hunger. We also urgently need diapers. We need a bed, even just one chair. I can't think of anything else. The refrigerator isn't working properly either. But none of that matters as much as making sure my son doesn't cry from hunger and I don't have to feed him moldy bread.

It's hard to comprehend someone else's suffering if you haven't experienced it yourself. But God forbid, if your children were hungry, what would you feed them? Just think about it for a moment. How would it feel to see your little son or daughter crying from hunger? Imagine your children drinking tea and eating the only thing in the house – moldy bread that you have to scrape the mold off of. How long can one live like that?

Our children have a chance to grow up healthy and strong with access to proper nutrition. What wrong have the thousands of children done who don't even have the slightest chance at a happy life?

This is the story of Natia and her son Alexander – a story of pain and suffering. Let's not remain indifferent to this plight. Natia and Alexander are not just names, they are living destinies that can change thanks to us.

As it's said in the Bible, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." By contributing, this terrible story can become a tale of hope, support, and the chance for a new life. Thank you for your compassionate heart, open to God!

If you want to visit the family and provide assistance in person, here is their address: Gardabani, village Krtsanisi. 

Every time you can help someone, just do it, and rejoice that God answers someone's prayers through you!

We are sure that all together we will manage to save them from imminent death.
