I madly loved the sea, the ocean. Visited all continents. Personally met by Fidel Castro and the President of Guinea. For the past few years, he has been the director of a sports school. He brought up children. He told them about the seas and oceans. After all, Georgia is a sea power!
And today - this fearless hero, a 79-year-old sailor, Levan Salukvadze lives out his days in dead solitude, cold and hunger!
“I've never been so alone and miserable!” Even during 10-storm storms, when there is death alone! And now ... And she is not visible ...! ”
Friends, how can such a sick, old and lonely person have enough to live on food for 260 GEL per month?
“Pension and social benefits go to medicines, without which I won’t wake up, and there’s nothing to eat! Oh Lord, it would be better if he drowned in the sea! ”- The old man complains ...
“Are there people around ?! Recently, some villains without a heart came from a gas office and turned off the gas. And now I'm even without hot water. And I have a stroke, a heart and another 100 terrible diseases ...
Tea and bread are all my food in a day. Recently I wanted to sweep the floor, - stooped and lost consciousness. Fell. And so he would have died ... After all, no one, no one nearby! But I'm Georgian. I am a proud person. And such humiliation ...
-Tell about yourself, about your past life ...
Levan Salukvadze: I graduated from a sailor. He served first as a young man, then as a sailor, and rose to the rank of assistant captain. The sea is my whole life!
- Tell me, why did you stay lonely in old age?
Levan Salukvadze: My wife could not stand my crazy rhythm of life. Gone ... I still love her! And our daughter, she married an Italian and left Italy. But personal life did not work out. A curse is visible on us! She divorced her husband, and barely making ends meet herself.
-What does the former sailor dream of?
Levan Salukvadze: (smiles - approx.) I dream to at least once again see the sea, touch the waves, enter the deck. However, I know that these are completely unrealistic dreams, since my real life is so miserable that with these dreams I will go to another world ...
-And when did you leave the big voyage?
Levan Salukvadze: It was after the collapse of the Soviet Union, in the hungry and cold 90s. But I did not stay idle. I’m a former pentathlon athlete! So he headed a sports school and for 15 years, until retirement, coached children, introduced a healthy lifestyle to love. You know, if I hold on somehow, this is the merit of the old school, as well as your Foundation, which does not leave me without attention.
Are you satisfied with our Home Care program?
Levan Salukvadze: “contented” is not the right word. I am happy that you "found" me and care. Your doctor Mananochka is a man with a huge soul. How I love her! Despite the fact that my health is supported by medications, still the most important medicine for me, for a completely lonely person, is communication. Therefore, every visit of your medical staff, as well as a social worker, is a real holiday for me. Maybe I was tired of them with my memories of the past, but for me it is a huge outlet, a real salvation! Thanks you!
Friends, let's throw the rope of help thrown by the tsunami overboard the old captain. We will not let him drown with the thought that he was betrayed by a team of “his” - the most beautiful and “kind” ship on the whole planet Earth - Georgia!
He needs a lot: food, medicine, hygiene items, household items, bedding, dishes ... And most importantly - the attention of compatriots!
If you do not have the opportunity to help him financially, be sure to repost. Let your friends know about the grief of the old, sick captain! And God will certainly help you if the “storm” doesn’t bring the Lord to happen ”in your life!
