He was the rock of the large and friendly Arkhoshashvili family, which in an instant turned from the happiest into the most unhappy family in Georgia. “Grandpa, grandpa, does it hurt? Why aren't you playing with me? " - the wonderful four-year-old widget Goderdzi tries to talk to his dear grandfather and gently strokes his hand. He hangs around his grandfather's bed and still can't wait for an answer. But he knows from his beloved grandmother Ketino that his grandfather Nodari who is very sick, someday he will tell him a wonderful tale. Oh, he can’t wait...

God bless Georgia that we were not left alone!
“We are not alone anymore, my love! The entire Georgia is with us!” Hold on my dear and don't you dare give up!"
I asked the Most Holy Mother many times not to allow my children starve to death! It is a real miracle of God that you appeared in our life! - the young woman Julia, daughter-in-law of the Arkhoshashvili family, smiles through her tears. “We believed that one day the tests would end, and happiness would come. Not all at once, but we have hope. We completely forgot how to rejoice, and you reminded us of that."
Even grandfather Nodari - broken by a stroke - tries to smile. He feels everything and experiences joyful excitement in the same way as other members of his family. When they brought the gifts to them, he got very excited. His family have not seen him like that for five years since he found himself in such situation. Grandfather Nodari tried to get up, say something, he’s shaking with emotions. It was the most significant and happy day for his loving family. His little grandchildren, his wife Ketino, his son and daughter-in-law Julia - all of them rejoiced.
For sure you remember what problem made the Arkhoshashvili family address us. Grandfather Nodari, the breadwinner of this family, a former participant of a talent show, an active and very positive person, suffered a stroke. His daughter-in-law Julia became responsible for taking care of all family members - for her insulin-dependent husband, a sick father-in-law, an elderly mother-in-law and young children.
Disease, poverty, and hunger defeated this family.
The scariest thing is to overcome hardships alone. But we prevented that from happening! Each of you tried to take care of this family appropriately, as if he were the breadwinner instead of grandfather Nodari. Dear readers, we felt that this was a special honor and responsibility for you to the family of grandfather Nodari.
"God bless you! God bless Georgia that we were not left alone! - says Julia, crossing herself. - My family will never forget this!"
- Julia, how the life of your family changed after the post was published?
Julia: You know how we used to live - alone with disease, poverty, fear. After my father-in-law's stroke, the family lost support - everything was based on him: he brought money into the house, and went to the marketplace for foodstuffs, and walked with the children for hours, and in the evening, he could cook a modest, but such delicious dinner for the entire family... From the moment our breadwinner became bedridden, the earth has gone from under our feet. We had nothing to buy foodstuffs with. Gradually, friends, acquaintances, people who were once close to our family disappeared from our lives... We were all alone, no one needed us, we found ourselves on the edge of life. This is how we lived before you appeared.
God bless you! You have given us our hope back! You turned out to be the only ones who helped us in trouble. What else to say! If not for you, we would have starved to death! I am sorry I cannot find words because of excitement. So many kind people, so many kind hearts were imbued with our misfortune! 
Now we have a washing machine, so neither I - a pregnant woman, nor my mother-in-law have to wash all the things with hands in cold water. My father-in-law and my son sleep on new comfortable beds. I have no idea when we could have gotten the beds ourselves! Until now, my son had to sleep on the floor... Food, medications, hygiene products - we really needed all this urgently.
Grandfather Nodari is still bedridden. But is it impossible to compare the present conditions with the past! Now he is clean and comfortable
- Julia, I am sure our readers will be happy to hear these warm words! We are waiting with all our hearts for changes for the better. Maybe you’d like to single out someone of your new friends?
Julia: Honestly, it's even embarrassing to single out someone. Each of those hundreds of people who responded to our request for help deserves words of gratitude, because they took something away from themselves and their family! I am immensely grateful to you, my dear people! You saved us from starving to death - each of you!
- Julia, maybe the local authorities also responded to our post and your request for help?
- If only they did! We get insulin for my husband. Several times a year, they bring us food and finance a purchase of some medications. For a large family living on an allowance of 270 lari, this is enough for nothing. We have two little children, I am pregnant, my husband, mother-in-law and father-in-law are sick. How to stretch 270 GEL per month without forgetting about utility costs? How to live on one lari per day? That is why we live from hand to mouth, like, probably, half of Georgia.
“Nice thing for people worn out by a hard life like me!"
- It’s our bitter reality. Fortunately, even after so many disappointments you did not  clam up, you did not lose faith in people. What do you remember the most? What did you feel when readers supported you?
Julia: We remember most vividly the reaction of my father-in-law when you brought us gifts. He was shaking with emotions, wanted to get up, could not calm down!!! For the first time in many years, these were tears of joy... We will never forget this day! Your help brought us faith that we are not doomed to eternal suffering and have the right for happiness. During these five years of poverty, we have lost many friends and acquaintances, they simply left us... It hurts, of course, but I dare not to judge anyone. It is such a difficult time now - everyone survives as best they can... At some point, I felt bitter disappointment. You helped us not to lose faith in people! You showed us that good people who help each other selflessly still exist! Many thanks to all of you!
Lots of laundry will fit here
- I’d like to talk to your son Goderdzi. Come here, dear. Which present did you like?
Goderdzi (5-year-old): Most of all I liked chocolates. Food is the best present, my favorite one! I love eating delicious food when we have food.
- So, food will be your wish to Santa?
Goderdzi: I always asked him to bring food. Khinkali, burgers, sausages, candy. But Santa doesn’t come to us. I don’t know why. Mommy says it’s because we live too far. If he would have asked: “What do you want, Goderdzi?”, I would have answered, that this year I want a big car and a chocolate cake.
“Nodari wants to tell you something. If he could talk, you would hear so many thanks! Yes, dear, our guests understand everything that you feel.”
- Oh, my dear boy! I think that this year Santa, will come to visit you and will bring you a car and a delicious cake!
Goderdzi: Chocolate one! I am already five! Should not he come at least once?
- Sure, dear! Don't even worry. Julia, what other problems could we help you to solve?
Julia: First of all, I want to thank everyone again for their participation, for being with us at the most difficult time, when we had not even a single piece of bread in our house. May the Lord protect you and your families! As for help... I am very embarrassed to ask, but our problems prevent us from living a normal life... As you can see, we are in great need, we live in bad conditions, we go hungry all day long. My father-in-law needs diapers, pain killers, ointments for bedsores... My mother-in-law and my insulin-dependent husband also need special nutrition and treatment. But we don’t have that kind of money, and I am not sure we will ever have it! Not to mention my children who wear the hand-me-downs and ask Santa to bring them food. It's hard to listen that. It is embarrassing to admit, but we haven’t installed the washing machine yet - we have no money for installation. It is so awkward to say that.
God, I really want everything to work out. We deserve a bit of happiness too! May love and prosperity reign in the family of everyone who reads these words! And let no one go hungry!
 «Oh, we are running out of diapers», – Ketino sighs
Dear friends! The Arkhoshashvili family needs our help again! We have already united once and managed to make their difficult living conditions a little bit easier. But foodstuffs and medications have already run out; the family started starving again, they need medications again! Looking at the helpless grandfather Nodari, my heart breaks, because no one but us can help him. He only has a disabled son, an elderly wife, a pregnant daughter-in-law and young grandchildren by him. What should they do, how should they live? Should they let their beloved father and husband starve to death? How to choose between bedsore ointment and bread? How to look into the eyes of a little son who puts on torn shoes in winter and trembles with the cold? These unfortunate people have no answer. We can once again demonstrate the power of good deeds and together make the life of the Arkhoshashvili family a little better.
They need us, they need our love and care! Please, let's not turn our backs on them! It is in our power to save them from hunger. Perhaps, if you think about it, this is exactly our mission in this world - to give a helping hand to the hungry and sick!
If you have a heavy heart because of everyday problems or unresolved issues, as a distraction just see our posts on Facebook, or better dial the number of any of our beneficiaries. Call them and you will forget about your problems. Because they are nothing in comparison with the problems of those to whom you opened your good heart and came to help in the most difficult moment of their life.
Our problems are noting 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, 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!
