You brought me back my father after 15 years!



Their smiles are sweeter than any sweets...

Little Gabro has the pacifier is in his mouth, so Madonna can speak now.

- You will go crazy now, what news do I have, - she says. - You found my dad! I swear, your Fund is my lucky chance! I'm ready to believe in any miracle. Maybe it is you who will put my Leila on her feet!

 Dear reader, do you remember the large Lukava family, and the little girl Leila, who has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, and suffers a lot? Her entire family wants her to take her first step. They really needed our support. We told their story in September 2021:

You have made the children truly happy. Chocolate rims around their mouth, and their sweet palms - they got so many yummies! You dressed them in clean clothes - now a washing machine washes the clothes for 7 people. You gave mom free time to spend it being around her kids.

 What could be better than to contribute to someone's happiness, to make someone's smile your goal? Give joy, give hope for tomorrow.

Four happy hearts- Madonna, our Fund is so happy that your dad appeared in your life, I'm sure our readers will be happy too to hear this news. Share your emotions with us and tell us how your life has changed since our post was published.

Madonna: You gave me determination and energy. Now my kids see me like that. And the story about my dad, Lord ... We did not communicate for 15 years! When he saw your video and found out about my situation, he contacted me. I cannot convey to you the feelings that I experienced when I heard his voice after so many years! Even now it is difficult for me to talk about it, I have not yet completely cooled off the emotions. 

 Since childhood, I loved my father very much, when my parents broke up, I was 10 years old. I always wanted to stay with my father. I often visited my aunt in Abkhazia and spent some time there to be closer to him. But time and the divorce of my parents took their toll and separated me from my father. 

 My childhood passed in great need, I was actually left completely alone. I had a bad relationship with my mother, I had to cope with all the problems myself and take all the blows. I missed my father a lot. What could be more important in this life than having a father you can rely on in trouble? You can rely on him. He will support you. When you get tired of this daily routine, you can simply go to him and say a few words, and even this gives you strength. 

 Your Fund gave me a father! Well, 15 years have passed since we've been living apart, but they say: "better late than never". I am now that little child who needs a father and this is the most priceless thing I could ever get in my life! I understand this now because the years passed meaninglessly without him. If only your Fund existed 15 years ago! 

 Also, I was lucky with my stepmother, or better say my "named mother", she really replaced my mother. All this makes me very happy! 

 I am grateful that with your help, I have free time, which I can now spend on being around my kids. I used to wash everything with hands, and it took a lot of time. Besides that, my injured hand hurt badly after washing in cold water. Now there is a washing machine where I wash clothes for 7 people. 

 The most important thing is that after your Fund appeared in our life, I no longer feel lonely. I have hope for tomorrow! It's like I was reborn!  I am eternally grateful to your Fund! I don't know how to convey to you the joy you gave me.C:\Users\Gio\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.Word\IMG_5671JPG.JPG

“This machine can wash for an hour and even more without a break. And mommy is not a machine, she was getting tired.

- Madonna, one can feel, that you are overwhelmed with emotions! Have you made new friends? Could you single out anyone?

Madonna: To be honest, I could not even imagine that complete strangers would let me feel so much kindness and attention! Because never in my life I was lucky to have such beautiful people by me! Such attention was unexpected and surprising for me. It is impossible to put into words how important it is when even one person appears to support you when you are in trouble.  Each of you is special to me! 

I want to single out Tamuna Antia, she works in the Parliament. Just when my Leyla became ill and had breathing problems, Tamuna brought us an oxygen machine. It was a lifesaving moment! I calmed down. I also remember Natia, who brought us a large supply of hygiene products, the Kardava brothers from Abkhazia. 

 I want to thank volunteers, they also did everything they could - they brought us groceries.

 I want to thank everyone, with no exception, for help - acquaintances and strangers. You are extraordinary!C:\Users\Gio\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.Word\IMG_5703JPG.JPGMadonna: The word "Thanks!" is too small to express my gratitude for the joy of my children

- I want to ask you about the health of little Leila. How is her state now, are there any changes?

Madonna:How I want to tell you something new and good, but it will be a lie. Her state has not changed. As I told you in our previous conversation - we keep fighting. Leila is still in constant need of rehabilitation. She needs expensive injections so that she can walk in the future. Before the doctor prescribes injections, Leila must pass special tests to make sure that her body will accept this substance.  All this, of course, is associated with the significant expenses. My heart hurts that I can do nothing to help my child. Will I live to see my daughter walk? If you only knew how I feel about being unable to help her! My hands and feet are tied, and again I hope only for your support. I am full of hope that with the help of so many kind people, we will certainly become able to change something. Leila is 5 years old, but it is never too late for the first step. I believe in that.- Did the local authorities respond to our post?

Madonna: Gogi Revia came to visit us from the mayor's office and brought us groceries. He brought us a lot of things. We are grateful to him for this. Besides that, he told us to prepare all the necessary documents and promised that he would help us in every possible way to get an electric wheelchair for Leila and he also promised to bring us firewood. We wrote a statement - we addressed the local authorities for help. After that, we were supposed to receive assistance in the amount of 100 lari, but three months have passed, and we still have not received the money, and there is no hearing from them.

- What do the help and support of the friends of the Fund mean to you personally? 

Madonna: This help means more to our family than anyone can imagine. I believed that your charity would reach me too. You have already helped so many families, I knew you would not leave me without attention. I want to once again thank all the members of your Fund who called me and made me feel love. Even the thought that someone cares about you, takes your pain to heart makes you feel good. At this moment, you become stronger, you believe that you will never give up, and will continue to live, smile more often, and at least for a while you will forget about your problems. Realizing that gave me a lot of positive emotions.C:\Users\Gio\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.Word\IMG_5733JPG.JPGThat smile of hers warms the entire house... Madonna, now I want to ask your children some questions:

What gift did you like the most?

Samanda (7-year-old):  Most of all, I was glad that my little brother has a new bottle and pacifier. When he cries and does not obey us, I give him a pacifier. I put it in his mouth, and he calms down. I also really like this toy that spins and goes like this: “vroom”. My sister Lika (12 years old) really liked chocolates. Oh, and one more thing... We let my brother Gabriel taste the porridge that you brought. When mom cooked it, we blew on it to let it cool down… And Gabriel ate it. By the way, he ate it all...C:\Users\Gio\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.Word\IMG_5641JPG.JPG

“Okay, I’ll stay quiet for a while”

”Here is my delicious porridge, I want more!”

- Lika, do you want more chocolate? 

(Suddenly, Lika began to cry and could not speak to me. And then Madonna told me that when she gave the children the last chocolate bar, and said that the sweets were over, they started to cry ...

- Mom, we will never have chocolate again?)Madonna: If only you could see their happy eyes when they started eating sweets after you left. And chocolate rims around their mouth! (smiles). Samanda said: “Mom, I will eat chocolate slowly in order to keep this taste in my mouth for a long time” (gets sad).

I promised the children to bring them a lot of delicious chocolates and reassured them a little.

- We know that you still have unresolved problems. How else can our readers help you?Madonna: The main problem of our family is the health of little Leila. My husband and I try to go through everyday problems together. But I will not deceive you and say that we manage to cope with financial difficulties. We are 7 people in the family, and it is very difficult for us to provide for ourselves and take care of a sick child in such conditions.  At the moment we need a normal bed. There is only one bed in our house - the children sleep on it. And we, adults, sleep on folding sofas, which are unbearable to lie on. A sick child lies on my chest all night long, and so we sleep. Every time I'm afraid that our sofa will collapse, and Leila and I will fall to the floor. If you can help us with this, we will be even more grateful to you. We always bless you for the good you have done.C:\Users\Gio\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.Word\IMG_5758JPG.JPGBaby Leila hasn't taken her first step yet. Our love and care can work this miracle!


 Friends, each of our stories is special, but the common thing for all of them is grief, and, unfortunately, there is too much grief in our country. At the very least, we can give warmth and attention to the Lukava family, talk to them, and take their pain to heart, because this is also a kind of cure for grief. Together we must build the future of Georgia, where little Lika, Samanda, Leila and Gabriel must live happily. Let's each of us contribute to the happiness of this family in whatever way we can.

Look carefully into the eyes of each of them and remember them, because you will see the reflection of Georgia there. We really want Georgia to shine. This family is Georgia in miniature. Together, we must help the Lukava family, put little Leyla on her feet.
