The husband left young beauty Mariam with two young children to die in a barn that is about to fall apart. Like a cattle! why the ground doesn’t open up and swallow him is a mystery. Because of his devilish aggression, the third baby was born premature and died. He has a stone, not a heart! Lord, why are they punished so bad?!
A 6-year-old boy and a two-year-old baby girl pray for a piece of bread every day on their knees on the icy concrete floor in this barn. They never ate meat, they are deprived of the sweet and simple childhood pleasures, not having even the simplest toys. How can it be so, oh God!
The walls of this old shack are breaking down. One recently fell and almost killed the eldest son. But God sent his beloved grandmother in time, and she managed to prevent the disaster. "Since then, I lit a candle to the God who saved my child every day," cries Mariam.
"What's wrong with your face?" – we asked the unfortunate woman who found our Fund on Facebook and invited us to her place. – Oh dear, I feel bad very often. I have heartache, I lose consciousness, I suffer from neurosis, and suffered from swine flu. This condition can develop into a "bad" disease, I am very afraid for the kids, if something irreparable happens to me…
But Mariam wears an Orthodox cross since childhood, from her birth, and believes that the Lord will not leave her. She believes that the time will come when fate will step aside and say: "You have had enough trials. Live peacefully...". But, so far their life has been very bad…
– How did your husband leave you, what happened? What about the kids?
Mariam: He left us three years ago when I was pregnant. And that was good! He would have killed the baby with his drunken brawls. He beat me in the stomach! But the baby was born healthy. Thank God!
Vodka took conscience and human dignity away
from the father of my children! He is not a human! He is not interested in
children at all, he does not care that his little ones starve, get sick, live
in this stable.
"When you married, I don't suppose you thought your life would be like hell?"
Mariam: I got married in the city of Ozurgeti. I lived in my husband's house. I dreamed of a large and happy family, but this was not to come true. When I gave birth to the first-born, there were no prerequisites that he would leave the family. But after a year, perhaps he was possessed by a demon. He started drinking, swearing, yelling at me; he stopped working…
– How did his parents react? Did they help you?
Mariam: He had no mother and no father. He said, " be patient." So I endured. Being pregnant with the second child, I dragged a bucket with water, chopped wood, cooked food, washed, was in constant fear that the dissatisfied husband can beat me. It was in this situation that I gave birth to my second child. He was premature and died some time later. I experienced a huge inner pain that still haunts me.
– And the third child, daughter Lidia, where did you give birth to her?
Mariam: When I got pregnant for the third time, I decided to go to my parents in the village of Khovle, in Kaspsky Region. I was afraid that the child could be born unhealthy, and at home, you know, my parents would not let him offend me. Lidia was born here, a perfectly healthy girl…
– And your husband?
Mariam: I left because I feared for my children, for my life, I could no longer endure the insults and humiliation. But this does not mean that a father should not take care of his children, because they are practically starving…
– Tell me about your parents. Why are they in such a distress?
Mariam: Mom and Dad are the closest people to me. I have no brothers and sisters, not even close relatives. There was an uncle, father's brother, and he died 5 years ago. We are completely lonely. My mother is now 56 years old, she moves with difficulty, her legs are swollen and she is unable to work. Dad had been a communications technician for years, earning his bread, so to speak. But a few years ago there was trouble – his stomach ulcer burst; he began bleeding heavily and was taken to the hospital, where he underwent surgery and miraculously survived. Since then he cannot work…
– The house, or rather this barn you live in,
is about to fall apart. How did you survive in such a situation?
Mariam: This shack was built 40 years ago. As you can see, there are two rooms, where the walls are without plaster, and the floor is concrete. One wall collapsed last year. The child was standing nearby, but his grandmother managed to grab his arm and pull him out.
– I see you've already rebuilt the wall…
Mariam: It was not us, it was our neighbor, Gennadiy Bakhtadze. He is such a kind person. He helps us a lot. In general, our neighbors are good people, poor, but kind. They take care of us as much as they can. So recently they bought firewood for us; however, it was enough for a couple of months. We have no gas, so we have to cook on a wood-burning stove. I drag water from the neighbors, and the toilet is in the yard.
– What is the amount of your social allowance and how do you spend it?
Mariam: We get 340 lari. Half of this amount is spent on medicines for my father, and the rest is spent on food. We have to live on watery soups, potatoes and pasta. My children have never eaten meat and are deprived of sweets. For example, this summer the older boy asked to buy him ice cream. Well, how could I refuse a child? That day I bought ice cream for children, and money for my portion of bread was not enough, so I remained hungry, because bread is our main food.
– Do the local authorities help you?
Mariam: No, they do not. I addressed them
several times, but in vain. They say we receive allowance, and that's
supposedly enough. That's how I get kicked every time.
– Mariam, do you regret you got married?
Mariam: Yes, I regret that I married this man. That's how it happens – once you made a mistake and now you have to suffer. It is no longer about me, but about my children growing up without a father, without support, without a father's care.
– And if your husband returns, will you accept him?
Mariam: Our future life together is out of the question, but if he decides to see his children and help them somehow, I will not resist. Although, he is such a callous and irresponsible person, that I do not believe in his "transformation".
– What do you believe in?
Mariam: You know, I believe in miracles. Isn't it a miracle you're here now? For a long time I did not dare to write to you, I thought that in a letter I would not be able to describe the severity of my situation. But the Lord sent me a miracle – you instantly responded to my pain and visited me. Thank God! I am very grateful to your Fund for the attention shown to my family.
– Mariam, do you believe that luck return to you again, that your life will come out of the darkness and misfortune will turn into happiness?
Mariam: Although I am still young, however, I
do not care about my personal life, as it is secondary. The main thing for me
now is my children, they need to be fed and watered, clothed and shod, and then
educated. Not believing that they will be happy means not believing in God.
Therefore, I believe that with God's help, with the help of compassion and
mercy of good people, with the help of prayers to the Lord, happiness will
Friends, here is another sad story that requires our urgent intervention. A young mother can break down and despair at any time, and that is a great sin. Let us not contribute to this by inaction, but let us help her and her children as much as we can; let us lift them out of poverty and distress and give them a ray of hope.
This family needs food, a washing machine, a refrigerator, a TV, dishes, blankets, children's clothes and toys! They have nothing of it. Yes, yes...it's true! They don't even have a TV, and the one they have was released in the late 1980s and has been out of order for a long time. These children are living in absolute poverty.
You can personally visit this family and provide assistance. This is their address: Kaspi region, Dadiani village, tel.: 558-735873.
