When heartbreaking howls and crying are heard from the cemetery, the whole village knows that Timur was brought to the grave of his parents! Timur is 40 years old, but he still cannot live without mom and dad. After all, he never lived without them after his birth. He merely does not know how to live without them... Because this poor man has the hardest form of cerebral palsy.
The father and mother loved him while they were alive and did their best to somehow improve the condition of Timur. For the parents he has always been a nice little baby. And they also took care of him: bathed and fed with a spoon!
He does not have a chewing reflex and he eats from a bottle as a baby.
And the hardest day has come in Timur's life! My mother died, and after that, and dad... he was left all alone in the world! Thank God he has a sister who, because of her brother, moved to live in the village near Tbilisi along with her husband and young children.
Imagine tlhe love and sacrifice that made her leave Tbilisi and come to the village to take care of the sick brother!
The elders say that everyone who suffers grief is a God's chosen one and is called a blessed one; they are sent on earth to carry their cross, even if they are not capable of doing that. When helping such a person we share his sorrow and eventually become accomplices to the person selected by God.
Meet the hero carrying God's cross!
We talked to Mzevinar about the problems and needs of the family.
– Mzevinar, how hard was it when your parents died?
Mzevinar: It was a blow for me to lose my mom and dad in a year... but I have a family, my children gave me the strength to endure the tragedy, and Timur... he's like a child, he did not live a day without them, he really missed our parents. He was so attached to them that after their death, everyone thought he was unlikely to survive. When I took him to my one-room apartment in Tbilisi, he cried every day. We decided to move to live in the village, and I am grateful to my husband for that; he supports me, helps me with Timur, and our children love him very much.
– Did he get better in the village?
Mzevinar: Yes, you should not think that cerebral palsy made him mentally retarded! He understands everything well, he is used to this house, to this yard. It is a whole world for him, and he's left in this world completely alone! Every day he asks me or my husband to take him to "mom and dad". He can pronounce only these two words... At the tomb of his parents he cries, howls and calls them. All the village knows when he is there, – Mzevinar said and started crying.
On the background of constant suffering, Timur's health has deteriorated dramatically. Last year, doctors diagnosed him with epilepsy, which meant seizures...
This family lives in extreme poverty. They are trying to survive with a pension of Timur and a pittance earned by the husband of Mzevinar.
Mzevinar: I have two children, and of course, feeding them is our main task, but Timur, is our principal child, he needs more attention and more warmth. Imagine how hard it is now for him; he cannot even repel a wasp if it stings. He even cannot change the position of his head...
At the moment our family is in a terrible state, it was a hard decision for us to contact you for help. We hope that kind people will respond to our call and give my brother their warmth. Our parents always lived with the hope that we would cure him. But God gave him to us just such as he is, and he is an angel with pure soul and we are responsible to God and must take care of him properly!
Friends, any help and attention will be saving for Timur! God told us to take care of this defenseless soul, and He will see what we do. After all, doing good to each other, we do good to our Lord!
Most of all Timur needs medicines, hygiene products and special food. It is impossible to cure him, but it is possible to make it easier for his sister to care for him.

I’ll go up the wall with pain!
Nona Turashvili, 53, plains. Her voice is constantly trembling. She does her best to hold back her tears, but at some point, the poor woman can't stand it. She puts her head on her hands and bursts into tears... There is so much grief and pain! She keeps crying...
Georgian lepers living in hell!
Friends, when you see what a life these unfortunates have, you will certainly get horrified! They are lepers. Not for us - people who know that there is God, but for officials who are obliged to help them! Will we leave them in trouble and turn our backs on them as well? Just look at the photo.
I know where God lives!
Mariam is having a hard time. She is ill. She is not like others. She can talk, read, write, dream, like her peers, but since her childhood she cannot walk. Can you imagine, friends, how hard it is for her family, living in in complete poverty, to see her suffering? They are so poor that they cannot help her!
Superfluous man in Georgia.
“Sometimes I dream that I'm walking again... Then I open my eyes and try to move my leg and arm. But nothing comes of it... It hurts when I realize that that was just a dream. And I get depressed. It feels like I became a hostage to my own body,” - says 31-year-old Goga Berishvili. The man’s eyes get wet. He tries to hide them, but you can hear despair in his every word.
I’ll voluntarily stare death in the eye for...
- I will be operated on for the seventh time - and I almost certainly will not survive the operation! I experienced clinical death four times...I am ready to die for the sake of my baby, but how will he live without me, dear people? Nobody will kiss him so tenderly; nobody will hold him to heart like his mother ... - Lord, save my life! - she asks God. - Let the operation be successful! - the brave lady named Lela says to me! This is she who deserves medal! She is a real heroine!
When I've gone blind, it seemed like they...
“I wake up, sit down ... While sitting I say to myself: “Well, are you still alive? Can we handle it today? Do you want to eat? Let's go shopping". It has lasted 11 years! After my TV went out of order, I have been lost completely. I don't know when the day comes, when the night comes, what date it is. I go out and wait until someone greets me to ask them what day it is, what time it is, what is happening in the world ... Then I pick myself up, take my stick and go to the nearest store to buy some bread. Though I'm blind, I still need food. The store seems to be close, but it takes me three hours to get there. Sometimes a cow butts me, or I run into something, fall down, lose my orientation, turn off the road...
If I die, no one will even know about it...
"I worked all my life, fighting for survival... This accursed disease broke me, deprived me of the opportunity to earn the bread for the day" sighs Lela, 51. At the age of 43, when the poor woman worked at a construction site, a large board fell on her head. Soon she had a stroke... Lela was left speechless for a long time. As a result, she is disabled, changing rented apartments, living in terrible conditions, suffering from loneliness, hunger, cold ... And she has absolutely no one to ask for help.
I don't know if when I wake up I will...
“Pain stabs me again and again ... And every step is like torture ...” - says Teona, mother of 5-year-old Demetre and 14-year-old Luka. Her eyes are full of tears and inconsolable despair. "Everything I love hangs in the balance ... Doctors have not been able to diagnose me for more than a year, and we have already spent absolutely everything on consultations, tests, examinations, and there is still no end to this ... Oh woe, woe!" Teona raised her eyes to the sky, and tears streamed down her cheeks. “Mommy, I won't give you to anyone, ever,” says 5-year-old Demetre and hugs his mom tightly. What is multiple sclerosis? Teona answers this way: "Tomorrow, when I wake up, I don't know if I will remember that these are my children ..."
