Now I know what a real birthday is!

- baby Nini, who recently turned 8 years old, says right at the doorway. “Do you know how many things they brought us? So many sweets and gifts!" - she opens her arm wide to show us and shines with happiness.

“And I am a real princess now! I have a lot of new dresses!" - her younger sister Mariam (5 years old) happily joins our conversation.

This is true, friends! These wonderful babies had no idea what a holiday was and forgot the taste of sweets long ago! We told you the sad story of the Basishvili family in our post “Birthday is a sad day”

And of course, it found response in your kind hearts!

“My Nini couldn't even dream of such birthday! You have turned our life into a holiday! – mother, Nino tirelessly keeps thanking us. “Sometimes it seems to be a wonderful dream!”

- Nino, what wonderful children you have! How did your life change after our publication?

Nino: It will not be an exaggeration to say that the life of our family was divided in two - before and after the publication of our story. Literally from the very first minutes, they started calling me, to support me and asking what we need. I didn’t believe it, it seemed to be a dream! You know, we had to endure a lot, and, unfortunately, I often saw indifference even from my relatives. And now the complete strangers came to visit us bringing us food, toys for children, household chemicals, clothes... Look at this plasma TV! The colors are so bright! I could not even dream of it! Now my children watch cartoons and when they go to bed, I switch it to the news. And the washing machine that the Fund brought me - it’s my best helper, moms will understand me! In just a few days, our refrigerator was filled with food, the taste of which the children had already forgotten - meat, yogurts... I have no words to express my gratitude to everyone, who helped and supported me and my children!

- Nino, what you remembered the most? Maybe you remember the names of those who helped you?

Nino: Probably the most emotional for me were the visits of those parents who brought us Christmas gifts, which they bought for their children. Just imagine, they deprived themselves and their families to make someone else’s family happy! And do you know what one woman, who came to visit us with her 8-month-old son, barely carrying a bag full of foodstuffs, answered me? “There are no someone else’s children!” I also remember a little girl Kira, who came to visit us together with her mother. Kira is a peer of my 5-year-old Mariam. This baby gave us her toys, the ones my children dreamed of! Kira is a real friend of my girls - they couldn't get enough of playing together. And a young girl Ruso - she bought food, clothes, household chemicals for us and she still calls us to ask if we need anything. We also had a very memorable evening the day before Nini's birthday: teenage girls with their savings bought a cake for my daughter, a lot of sweets and toys, can you imagine that? Nini could not even dream of such delicious food for her birthday! How can I single anyone out? I remember all the calls and visits, everyone who helped us and made us happier. Thank you very much! God bless you!

- Nino, did the local authorities somehow react to our post? Did you contact them again?

Nino: I keep writing letters and applications month after month asking them to provide us with housing, but I only get refusals so far. They say that I have to wait. I wait for six years now, but I do not lose hope.

- Nino, let's not talk about sad things. Could you please tell me about your emotions and reactions to the gifts the Fund brought? Did you expect such a response and support?

Nino: I could only dream of such attitude from strangers to me! At first, there was a shock, my children and I were waiting for the guests with bated breath. Probably any housewife dreams of a washing machine and a TV, especially when there are four children in the family - so now my everyday routine became much easy and more fun for me! And the children were so happy with delicious food and toys! But what can one say about emotions - their happy and contented faces say more than words! They would have been happy even to get just one tangerine, but they got so many gifts!

- Nino, you are so emotional and joyful telling me about the Fund's help! What does it mean to you?

Nino: You know, it’s not only about the material value, although we are in dire need trying to survive in unbearable conditions. The most valuable thing is that I have found new friends! I felt love and care, I have hope again. I have not been so relaxed for long! We feel that we are not alone, kind and caring people are next to us, and they will not let my children starve to death” - sobs Nino. Giorgi - the eldest son - comes up to her and timidly calms her down.

Giorgi: Mom, please stop crying...

- Giorgi, what presents did you get?

Giorgi: My biggest dream came true! I got a bicycle! Look how cool it is, it’s so fast, I love it so much! Now I can race with my friends in the street! Thank you very much!

- Gio, I am so happy that you liked it! Nini, sweetheart, what gifts did you like the most?

Nini: Yummies are the best! I love sweets so much! I know I should not eat a lot of them so that my sisters and brother will get them too. Do you want me to tell you a secret? I hid the chocolates and when my mother tells us that they are over, I will surprise her, and we will have enough sweets for a few more days! And now I have the most beautiful doll in the world, I love it very much!

- Oh, Nini, what a beautiful toy you have! Mariam, what about the present that you got?

Mariam: Do you know that I love to paint my nails and dress like a real princess? They brought me very beautiful dresses, I will put them on when I go to school in September, and I will be the most fashionable girl in the class! 

- Mariam, you are so smart! I am sure you will be an excellent student! Nino, let us continue our conversation. Maybe you have some more problems that our readers can help you to solve?

Nino: I am embarrassed to ask for anything else, especially taking into the account the crisis our country experiences now. It’s not only me who needs support. I want to thank everyone who managed to help us. Unfortunately, neither I nor my husband, who with God's help returned to us and is seriously ill, have opportunity to cover the necessary expenses on our own. I’d like to share my joy with you! I am pregnant with my fifth child. When I heard his heartbeat, I did not hesitate in my decision to give birth to him! I thank God for another miracle in my life! Pregnancy monitoring is mandatory for me due to anemia and other diseases I have, but unfortunately, we do not have the money to visit doctors. They prescribed me injections and vitamins, but I can't purchase them. If the friends of the Fund will wish to help me, I will be very grateful for your support, help, attention, because you showed me that my children and I are not alone in this world. You are our guardian angels! God bless you!


Dear friends, the family expresses its deep gratitude to everyone who did not remain indifferent to their problems and helped them! We can unite this time too, to support a pregnant woman who needs treatment and medications. The Basishvili family will be grateful for any help - food, clothes...
