"Do you really need her like this?" people kept asking her mother. "She will die soon! Look, those parents left such a child in an orphanage and now they will live happily. You can't imagine the burden of raising a sick child, especially when you already have a healthy daughter. Imagine how hard it will be for her. How embarrassed she will feel of having such a sister." Instead of encouraging the young mother, it seemed like everyone had conspired and wanted her to leave the child like a piece of meat.

"Elene smiles when she feels loved and happy. You brought many moments of joy to the little blind girl!

Little Elene is completely blind and has cerebral palsy. But she was able to 'see' all your gifts in her own way.  She touched and felt her new table, her stroller. She is happy that this is all for her, she smiles broadly, feels happy.

Mom Sofia has long wanted this - to bring happiness to her daughters, whom she raises alone: a little bit of happiness for her seriously ill and helpless daughter, Elene, and a little bit for the older daughter, Nini, who has grown into a beautiful young lady but is deprived of everything in the world. After her husband's death, Sofia cannot give anything to her children

The Minashvili family had terrible living conditions. They didn't have food, medicine, or even the simplest things until they found you - friends, helpers, and protectors.

Elene definitely likes her new personal dining table!

Sofia, what changes are especially important for you?

Sofia: You took care of my entire family, and we all have changes now. We can now walk with Elene for 1.5-2 hours without any problems. Before, when we didn't have a stroller, I used to carry Elene in my arms in the yard. Even though she's skinny - 12 kilograms, I couldn't hold on for long. Now we have complete freedom. We not only walk around our neighborhood in Vale, but also take the bus to Akhaltsikhe. The stroller is lightweight, easy to fold, and it's easy to get on the bus with it. It is comfortable for Elene to sit in it, her back doesn't get tired, and my daughter doesn't cry.

With the stroller, walks last longer. Elene even travels from Vale to Akhaltsikhe.

The other day, Elene caught a slight cold, and she was already starting to cough. I immediately brought our new nebulizer and gave her an inhalation with saline solution (added 5 ml there). It works very well in clearing mucus and helps the child. We would have had to go to the hospital again if it weren't for the nebulizer. And you brought me so many medications, including many cold remedies.  That's what we always need.

The abundance of medications and diapers greatly reassures Mom Sofia.

"The best gifts for me are the blood pressure monitor and the mattress.  I was really happy about it."

- It sounds a bit poignant coming from a young woman that she is grateful to have the blood pressure monitor.

Sofia: That's because life has been torturous. The child's illness, the husband's death. But I've gotten used to the blood pressure problem. The main thing is to control it so it doesn't drop below my normal range (80 over 60) and doesn't rise too high. Now I'll at least know how I'm doing.  Sometimes I feel like I'm dying, but there's nowhere to measure it.

I started sleeping like a human. During the day, I'm not sluggish or shut off, I can handle things properly. Before this, I used to lie on a lumpy mattress and suffer from insomnia.  Plus, I had back pain bothering me. My lower back always hurt in the mornings. But now, thanks to you, I've forgotten about all that.


Mom Sofia no longer suffers from insomnia and doesn't experience back pain – she has a comfortable mattress. 

I also forgot about the problems during laundry. The old washing machine would sometimes leak water and flood the floor, or "hold onto" clothes - its door would get stuck. But the new washing machine is cooperative. (Smiles) I run it as many times as needed. Now it's summer, and the kids' clothes get dirty quickly. 

 The old washing machine had a "personality," while the new one handles all of Sofia's tasks.

The kitchen hood is an unexpected gift from you, something I couldn't even dream of.  But you're very attentive, noticing everything and helping more than I would dare to ask. I'm amazed at how you can solve problems. I'm happy that the Fund solves my problems, that you're my defenders. You even helped me stir up the local authorities, which I didn't expect at all.

The hood quickly removes all the unwanted smells from the kitchen and prevents grease drops from settling on the furniture.

- Sofia, please tell me, what did the Fund help you achieve from the authorities?

Sofia: One day, I received a call from the city hall, inviting me to come. There I learned that I'm entitled to assistance – 200 lari once a year. I can use it to buy groceries. But then I heard a reprimand: "Haven't we helped you? Why are you ungrateful, why are you complaining about us?" They received a letter from a public defender. Sometimes they did actually help us, but why did they keep it from us that we've been entitled to such assistance for three years already? I would have used it three times. I'm so thankful to you, so thankful that you look after me and pester everyone.  Suddenly, they all became so attentive. In another office, they said: "You're entitled to a special wheelchair for your disabled child. You're also entitled to a special chair for her bath.” They themselves offer us everything. (Smiles.)

- What would you like to say to our readers? What emotions and feelings do you experience when you see their support?

Sofia: I have remembered all your warm words, and for me, they are a source of strength. When you write on Facebook: "Elene is a beautiful, wonderful, extraordinary girl," I become very strong. When you write: "Wishing our little one great health and God's protection," I feel that I am not alone in this world. When you write: "Don't give up, Sofia, fight for Elene, move forward, don't be afraid," I feel like I have wings. You are wonderful indeed! You know how to uplift, inspire, even in the most challenging situations. You are in my heart! Nini, Elene, and I love you.

Nini: I also want to wish the people who helped us and their children, first of all, be healthy. May they never need the things that my sister needs, and no medications at all.

- Nini, what has changed for you personally?  Have we been able to help in any way?

Nini: It's summer now, and no child wants to study. But they brought me such a beautiful writing desk that I want to study right now.  I'll arrange my notebooks, pens, and notepads nicely on it. I would go to school tomorrow if I could.  Well, okay, I'll wait until September 15th.  You'll see how dedicated I'll be! Then you can call here and ask. You can even call my number, not mom's.  I already have my own phone, it's really cool. Thank you so much!  Those classmates of mine who didn't go anywhere during the summer, like me, already know my number.  We call each other and go out for walks in the evening. And I'll give my number to other kids too.

Nini: "I have such a cool desk that I'm already eager to start studying!"

- You make us so happy! It's happiness when a child wants to learn. Sofia, what other problem at the moment can't you solve on your own?

Sofia: Our old gas water heater broke down again, and we're bathing and washing our hair with cold water. If there's anything that can be done about it, our happiness will know no bounds. But if it's not possible, we'll endure it. As long as Elene is not in pain, we'll endure anything else.

In a family where there is a seriously ill child, there are always challenges. Assisting a family with a sick child like Elene can be ongoing. It would be wonderful if any of you would make such a decision. It would be wonderful if you become a close friend and helper to this family. We are looking for a personal guardian angel for the blind little girl Elene.

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.

Our problems are nothing if compared... Here are true misfortunes, in front of your eyes! Just thank the Lord for what you have. You are the happiest person in the world! Remember this and help those in need.

Unfortunately, problems of this and other families do not end here and now... Therefore, from time to time, look through the stories of unhappy people on our website, and talk to them. Every time you dial the Phone of an unhappy person, God is blessing you! For sure! Go on helping these families! This is the best service to the Lord!

Friends, there is one more request: if you know about the misfortune of a neighbor or friend do a godly deed, drop us an email at:

Your kindness is a chance for yourself to be happy!

Friends, thanks again to each of you!
