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.

This family needs clothes the most. Clothe them, and your soul will be enveloped with God's blessings!

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God!
I beg you to bless the people who did not leave us in trouble!


“I almost went crazy from the happiness when I saw that so many kind people were eager to help us, - says Ketevan Burduli. - It still feels like a dream! I want everyone to know - despite our hard life, despite the fact that everyone has a lot of problems, there are very, very kind people in Georgia. I am happy that I met you, I love you! “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God! I beg you to bless the people who did not leave us in trouble!”

We know that you are eager to find out what happened after we published a post and video about the Burduli family:

A post about a grandmother and a mother with leprosy, and a 3-year-old boy, deprived of absolutely everything, found a response in the hearts of many people.

And this is what the continuation of this story was:

“We don't fall asleep hungry anymore, - Ketevan says with tears of gratitude. - Our life has changed a lot. Words cannot express how much joy we experienced, how much warmth and love you brought to us!"

Sergo really likes to receive guests and get the gifts

- Ketevan, what has changed in your life after the post was published? - Would you like to thank any of our readers?

Ketevan: Previously, neighbors sometimes helped us, and the workers in the yard sometimes gave us some firewood. And after the publication of the video about us, complete strangers started calling and coming to visit us. All of them acted like our relatives. They brought us food, things one needs in everyday life. My grandson Sergo was so happy when they brought him a toy! He didn’t even know what it was.

There are a lot of people who helped us. But I assure you, I remember every person, every name! And I do not stop praying to God for them. It's a pity, this is the only way I can thank these kind generous people. Their help was invaluable, no matter how big or small it was. I’d like to name them: Maka and Maya Veltauri, Zura Dudauri, Natela Mirziashvili, children of Zura Shalikashvili, Natela Kavtaradze, Irina and Irakli, Vakhtang and Mariam. Rati and Nino, Natia Egadze, Nato Kariauri, the Shermadini family, Marina Varsimashvili, the Choliashvili family, Lana Chikaidze, Liziko Burduli, Mari Popkhadze, Pati Cherkezishvili came on behalf of their friends. All their neighbors.

But I had one very emotional experience... Sopho Misriashvili used to help us, but one month ago a grief came to her family - her mother died. So, on the day of her mother's funeral, she and her sister came to visit our Sergo. They brought him sweets, which are so rare in our house. You must have a huge and loving heart to remember and care for strangers while you are experiencing personal tragedy! This touched and impressed me a lot! (Ketevan's voice trembles with emotions.)

- What an amazing act. Do you keep in touch with your new friends?

Ketevan: Our Sergo still cannot remember all the names and so he simply calls them “kind people”. (Ketevan smiles.) You should have seen how happy he was when he met them. He urged me: “Grandma, hurry up! Come on!” He ran to meet them and asked: “How are you?” And then he listened to our conversations. Then he laid out the presents and called me - to admire and enjoy them together. (Smiles). All our new friends and helpers gave us their phone numbers asking to call them when we need something. But I don’t dare. How could I? They have their own troubles. But I always congratulate them on holidays.

- Our people are really warm and kind! Be sure, they will never leave you in trouble.

  Ketevan: I hope so. You have already helped us a lot. Sergo is interested in all the new things, he is so happy that all this is ours. He feels himself like a master, he examines the refrigerator and washing machine. (Smiles). I am so grateful to you! Our health condition prevents us from washing with our hands. A washing machine helped my daughter and me to get rid of this torture - that's what it means to us. The refrigerator came in handy! And a microwave too! You can’t imagine how much it will ease our daily routine. This may be just an ordinary thing for others but for us it is a real miracle!

Now he has toys!

“Do you want to whisper something in my ear?” - Ketevan asks her grandson smiling and listens to his answer. "Yes, I do."

Ketevan: Sergo says: "Grandma, why aren't you talking about TV?" I haven't gotten to it yet. We used to live like hermits, we couldn't even watch the news. And the child was deprived. Now we have an opportunity to distract ourselves and not think about bad things. I am happy for my grandson -, he is the first one who needs the TV. He's our boss.

And a TV with cartoons!

    If not for your Fund, no one would have known about our situation. I often go to church and pray: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God! I beg you to bless the people who did not leave us in trouble”. I see so much compassion and love in the strangers who come to visit us... They took our plight to heart. Do you know how they were entering our house? As if they were relatives, who have not seen us for a long time, who have come from afar. Miracles are often worked with human hands.

- How did the authorities react to your troubles?

Ketevan: No one called us. The governor came to visit us for the New Year. He came with his two assistants, but I have not seen them after that. Now we have a new governor, and he probably is too busy. (Ketevan has an understanding smile on her face.)

"Granny, hurry up, let's look at the presents!"

  - Ketevan, I know that help provided to you by our readers is priceless. But I am sure you still have some problems that are not easy to solve. Please share these problems with us.

Ketevan: We have something to eat and where to sleep. What else do we need? (Ketevan hides her eyes, but she cannot hide sadness and helplessness.) If only I could improve my health... Both I and Victoria suffer from leprosy having all the complications. That’s why, we are disabled. You need a lot of money for medication to support your health. I need to be operated on my eyes in Tbilisi. They called me from the Social Services Agency. They also saw a post about us. They promised to help us, but we need to bring them our medical papers. And I cannot go to Tbilisi. We need money for travel, for examination... If we were assigned at least a small social allowance it would be easier for us, we would not have to ask people for help. It is so embarrassing, but there is no other way out.

- As I see, these are not all your problems. Your house is in a very poor condition. But cold and dampness spoil not only the walls of your home, but also your health, which is already undermined.

- It's bad that we don't even have a toilet inside the house, it's in the yard. And there is no gas. They promised to connect us, but we need to pay 400 GEL. This amount is huge for us, so 25 lari will be automatically deducted from my pension monthly.

- Hopefully, with our joint efforts we will manage to sort out all the problems. The main thing is not to give up

Thanks again to your Fund and to all the kind people! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!


Saying goodbye to this family, we saw a spark of hope in Ketevan's eyes. She believes -  she believes that God will not leave her family. And she knows for sure that the mercy of God is manifested through ordinary people.

Friends, we are so deep into our work, business and household chores that we have forgotten this simple truth: God works through people. Let's give Him the opportunity to show love for this family through us! Let's open our hearts to kindness and compassion! We are all equal in front of God, and tomorrow grief may come to our family. A small amount of money, food, household items from all of us can make the life of the Burduli family and other families in need easier. Don’t stay indifferent!

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!

Your kindness is a chance for yourself to be happy in everything!
