One-bedroom apartment for 71-year-old Lena Kochuashvili has become a whole world ...! Oh Lord, a seriously ill elderly woman doesn’t even have anyone to give water to. For 7 years now, because of a stroke, she gets out of bed with great difficulty. And when the last time I went outside - I don’t even remember. Her life is also poisoned by diabetes and high blood pressure. How can a person endure all this ?!
It’s impossible not to admire this heroic woman! For all her weakness, she reproaches herself for not being able to take care of the adult disabled son who lives with her. Oh, this mother-heart full of sacrificial love!
And now this kind old woman herself needs our help more than ever.
“My refrigerator is empty, I've been starving for several days,” Lena Kochuashvili told us. Because of the bouquet of illnesses, she cannot remember much, including the death of her beloved husband, but the best moments are still remembered ...
Lena Kochuashvili was married early on the deal, but family life was happy for her. She recalls her husband with love. They had a boy and a girl. The daughter is forced to take care of her sick husband. Therefore, it is not often possible to visit a mother with her brother.
They live in Muhiani in an apartment. A refrigerator and a gas stove were bought in youth, in those years when they could afford it. Well, now there is no money even to fill it.
Lena Kochuashvili: We interrupt ourselves with bread alone, for a long time the meat had already forgotten the taste, even in a dream we no longer dream ... we cannot buy it. She ate butter for the last time when the social patrol of the Chernovetsky Foundation handed out food. How grateful we are for this! Previously, potatoes and pasta were borrowed from the store, but now it has closed. Who will give us food ... we are dying of hunger.
- You have a pension, social benefits, a son’s pension, how do you distribute them?
Lena Kochuashvili: Oh baby, is that enough? Everything has risen in price, this money is enough for us only for bread and for the payment of utility bills. Whenever we borrowed food, he paid with his pension ... In addition to food, we need medicines, I can’t even go to the doctor to prescribe a course of treatment ... what’s the treatment, I can’t even buy medicine for pressure ... I still have diabetes and need good nutrition, but there is no way and my health is getting worse. Here I get up, walk a few steps and can’t lift my legs, I call my boy to get to bed ... And these diapers, I’m so ashamed, but what can we do, it’s very difficult for us ... They’re so expensive ... I don’t know how to deal with all this ...
- Does anyone help out of relatives?
Lena Kochuashvili: My sister! She comes sometimes, she also has a family and she is also sick, but she cannot leave me to my own devices. Sometimes she cleans the house, sometimes the soup makes so that we do not die of hunger ... She is my only hope. And my daughter, she, too, is poor looking after a sick husband and cannot often come to us ...
- What would you say to our readers, have you experienced so much?
Lena Kochuashvili: Oh, I don’t know! She lived for herself, for her family, did nothing wrong, and this old age, what did she do to me? ... - she confined me to bed and I now ask good and generous people for help. May the Lord help all benefactors, because he looks from above, and sees everything, I believe in it!
