Poverty should not humiliate Georgian stars!

When there is no money even to buy bread, Iuza takes the most valuable thing he has - The Order of Honor - and looks at it with annoyance. What if you sell it? For how many days there will be money to buy bread or medications? But people like Iuza don’t sell the honor. “There are things, that are not for sale. And since they are not for sale, then they are no longer things - but the meaning of life,” - says Iuza.

Project completed!

The whole of Georgia responded to the plight of 85-year-old Iuza, the star of Georgian soccer! Friends, he received from you the greatest gift in life - respect! It's just a pity that there wasn't enough money to fix the roof...


"I tell everyone straight forward that only the Fund helped me. How I love such kind-hearted people!  You are genuine!"

- A person needs attention, deeds, and the heart needs love.   But perhaps I asked in the wrong place - I wanted to receive attention and support from the state," says football veteran Iuza Losaberidze. The famous athlete, former captain of Kutaisi's "Torpedo," found himself in extreme need in his old age

Iuza: No one can love better than our people. No one has given me as much attention and warmth as the readers of the Fund - compassionate, decent, genuine! People of honor, true Christians, and philanthrops!

What I appreciate the most is respect, kind and attentive treatment. New things can improve living conditions, but they alone cannot make a person happy.  But when you know that this television, refrigerator, or this new bed is given from the heart by a large number of people, it's a completely different matter!

"A new thing may give comfort, but happiness comes from people through their attention!"

Iuza: Genatsvale! My dear people! You understand life correctly, and you feel what is most important in it.  I also understand it that way. A person should be a support for another person.  We should support and encourage each other, be there in sorrow and joy. You are strong when you love someone, value and respect people, care for others, and do good.  That's why your readers are a tremendous force!  Genatsvale!  How much I love such kind-hearted people!  I always say, 'God, save my country and save our people.'  Together, we must stand united, and we will be stronger.

- Beautiful words and great attitude! And you are irresistible in your new sports uniform. You need to get back out on the soccer field!

Iuza: Thanks for the compliment! (Laughs). Although my leg doesn't allow me to do that anymore, I try my best to stay cheerful and active.  I sleep better now and rest on the new bed, having more energy and strength. и

"I sleep much better on the new bed, and I've gained more strength and energy"

I willingly do the simplest things: go shopping, cook for myself - something for now, something to save for later.  Thankfully, there is a refrigerator, and I no longer worry about food spoiling. It often happened that I was walking down the street, and acquaintances who had seen the Foundation's project about me would stop me and ask -  "Well, Iuza, did the state help you?"  And I would tell them directly that only the Fund helped me in a humane way, with groceries and everything else.

“Everything is okay with groceries now - I store all the food in the new refrigerator"

I always want to know what's happening in my country, what agreements our government is making with other countries, what's happening inside and outside.  I'm interested in sports shows good movies. My mind is active, it doesn't age, it constantly craves food for thought.  And now there's plenty of it - I have a television with internet access.  Whatever I want, I just turn it on.

"Now I'm up to date with all the news: both in our politics and in sports, I also watch good movies"

You've done so much for me, and you still can't stop worrying about whether I'm okay, whether I need anything. The people in the Fund and your readers are very compassionate. At my age, attention is the greatest value.   And I fully understand that there are many sick, poor, hungry, and homeless people in Georgia, and everyone wants attention... I am happy and greatly appreciate the care of the readers.

- It seems like you still hold some resentment towards the local authorities. Didn't they help during the project?

Iuza: To be honest, they helped me in some way. The Kutaisi City Hall sent construction materials for roof repairs.  But again... There's an expression: love halfway. If you do something, finish it, don't leave it halfway. I have the construction materials here, but there's no one to fix the roof.  They didn't provide any workers. Am I - a pensioner - supposed to climb up and fix the roof myself?   I look at those construction materials and just get nervous. The roof keeps leaking.

Another example - the Football Federation... They fulfilled my request and agreed to increase my pension - as a football veteran, a famous athlete. They sent a letter to the Ministry of Culture. It's been six months since then - no reply. It's as if I'll live forever... Probably there won't be any increase, they just brushed it off, I have no hope... 

As soon as the project started a representative from Kutaisi's 'Torpedo' also came and made all sorts of promises: an apartment, assistance... And disappeared without a trace. You just need to have a good heart, keep your word, care about people and love them.  There is no need to explain it to the readers of the Fund. I'm very grateful to you for your understanding and help.  As for the authorities, even if you explain to them, they stay indifferent. 

- So, the question of the roof remains unresolved. What other issues need to be addressed?

Iuza: No, no, my dear.  I have many problems.  But I don't want to burden people with them again.  I'm not the only one who needs care.  Whatever happens, happens.


We don't want to leave Batoni Iuza disappointed and sad.  Especially because we share the same life philosophy: a person should be a support to others. And it's not just empty words or promises, but actions.

 A new roof can warm not only a home but also the heart.  Such a gift from the readers will warm the heart of our dear football veteran.

If you have a heavy heart because of everyday problems or unresolved issues, as a distraction just see our posts on Facebook, or better call any of our beneficiaries, and all your problems will seem unimportant to you, compared with the problems of those to whom you helped in the most difficult moment of their lives.
