REPOST RIGHT AWAY, MY GOOD MAN! HELP YOUR FRIENDS TO GET CLOSER TO THE WORK OF MERCY!
“It’s good that you came, because I either offend my mother or my grandmother all day long. Now I was going to offend my sister,” says a frowning Nikoloz, defiantly hugging his sister. You have come on time! I couldn't offend my sister.
- Is he always this mean?
Lika (4-year-old): Always, when he is hungry. He scared me and said: “I want to eat you,” and ran after me like a wolf. He is hungry all the time. Just in case, he can eat you too. Do you run fast? But you probably don't taste good. He loves salami the most.
Nikoloz (5-year-old): And dumplings, and khinkali.
Lika: And I like bananas and sweets.
Ruizan: They only talk about food. My poor ones. Sometimes it really happens so that we have only stale bread. Hungry children, a ruined house... What could be worse? What could be sadder?
How can seven people fit in this hut? I can’t imagine
There isn't even enough room for everyone to sit. And they live here. Mom, dad, grandparents and three little chicks: one-year-old Lasha, four-year-old Lika and five-year-old Nikoloz. This is the one that is hungry and angry!
There is no water at home, they wash everything with hands in the yard. They wash linen right in the river. They bathe in a small basin in the room.
“And I love washing dishes, it's so much fun. Mom doesn’t let me - she says that blood will come from my fingers. And we’ll wash a little, we’ll douse each other a little and then we’ll go to warm ourselves”
“That crazy Lika doused me with water from head to toes, I had to change clothes”
- Do you and Lika quarrel like cat and dog all the time?
Lika: These boys are so weird! Bring me a car, I'll get in it and drive away from them!
Nikoloz: And bring me a bike, and I'll catch up with Lika!
- And what can I bring to your mother so that she can catch up with both of you?
Lika: Bring her a lot of yummies, and then we won't run away. (Chuckles.)
“We actually love each other! We even can play together. But not for very long."
- I see the conditions you live in and realize that you have a very hard time!
Ruizan: You are right. With the allowance we get, we can buy nothing but pasta. When children catch colds and get sick and we buy them medications, consider that in that month we starve! Antipyretics and cough medications are very expensive. And it is impossible to avoid children catching colds in such conditions. They cut off gas for non-payment, electricity is also very expensive. Last month I had to pay 30 lari for utilities - this is an unbearable amount for us.
“Our floor is concrete, our walls are damp, it’s dripping from the roof. We have no warm blankets, no warm clothes either. We save firewood"
- Do you have any other income, except for allowance? It is impossible to live on 300 GEL. Does your husband work?
Ruizan: He either herds or works as a laborer. He never stays idle. But there are no permanent jobs in the village. When he comes home in the evening, the children immediately begin to rummage through his bag with the words: "What did you bring us?" Tears choke me when I am saying that. God forbid any mother to see hungry children.
- And what is the most delicious thing dad can bring?
Nikoloz: Once he brought salami. Khinkali are very tasty too.
Lika: And for me, bananas are the most delicious! But I don't have a plate to put bananas and sweets on. I don't have a table either! And I don't have a chair! And I don't have a closet so I can put bananas, plates, and sweets there. And I don't even have a bed! And Nikoloz keeps pushing me with his feet and won't let me sleep.
Nikoloz: Please bring me a separate bed! And salami, and sausages, and dumplings! Please!
The children’s favorite toy is a wheel... I have no comments
- What else besides food do you dream of?
Nikoloz: I dream of food! And of bike too!
Lika: And I want to have a TV with cartoons. And a "girl's" bike or car.
- What does "girl's" car look like?
Lika: It’s red! You don't know, do you? You are also a girl. I want a car that I can sit in. I saw such a car at Buka. And I want to have mine. I'll get in and drive it. And I’ll put a doll next to me, which you will also bring to me along with sweets.
- Won’t you let Nikoloz or Lasha sit next to you?
Lika: There will be no room for them. Let them ride bicycle.
- Ruizan, your children have already told me everything, maybe you also have some dreams?
Ruizan: Yes, we really need beds, and a small cupboard. Warm blankets, pillows, clothes for children. And most importantly - food! You know, if my children see the sausage, they will go crazy with joy. That's all our dreams.
"Come visit me, I'll sing you a song"
Friends, this family has no one else to ask for help. Their last hope is the help of complete strangers. Mom worries about her children because malnutrition and cold may cause serious health problems. She also knows that, without asking for help, she will condemn those whom she loves more than anything in the world to suffering and an unhappy childhood. Children don't deserve to live like this. So, what to do? How to be? We can support them and show that being born in Georgia is not that scary.
Beds, bedding, clothes and shoes, a closet, food, toys, and a bicycle - that's what these people can only dream of now.
If anyone can visit the family and get to know these adorable kids, that would be great. But do not forget to bring them dumplings or sweets! And here is their address: Gori, Akhaldaba village.
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.
