“In good weather, I can see the starry sky from my bed,” says 11-year-old Giorgi. And this is not just a joke. He offers me to lie down and take a look. Actually, it is not night now, and there are no stars in the sky, but I can imagine it. From the minute I entered this house, I can only count the holes in the ceiling and floor.

 We have not been this happy for a very long time!

We’ll soon finish building our house and invite everyone to visit us!


“When kids saw the huge boxes at the balcony, they ran out of the room like crazy,” - Madonna tells me. – “Laughing with joy, the whole family surrounded the gifts, as if it were a New Year tree. Thanks to you, we really had a wonderful day!

Grimy blue-eyed Mariam was really happy with the sweets

“I have been subscribed to your site for a long time. I always followed your kind deeds. Before I found myself in such situation, I also took part in charity, but now, I needed help myself. So, the Lord sent me good people. Your Fund is the savior of all the poor. I wish you many more good deeds!” - says the mother of the large family, unable to hide her tears of joy.

Madonna Onashvili-Mumladze is the mother of three children. She has a very hard life. The hardest thing was to overcome poor living conditions - this became the main problem of the family, not to mention the lack of food, clothing, and home appliances. The dilapidated building with a damaged roof and holes in the floor and walls became a shelter for uninvited guests - rats, cockroaches, and reptiles.

Our Fund published a post about the Mumladze family on November 3, 2021.

 “I want to share my joy and gratitude with everyone!”

– Madonna, what has changed in your life since the Fund published an article about you?

Madonna: Do you know what I enjoy the most? Washing machine! Do you know why? Because I won't bother my Nini anymore! She helped me to do laundry. I washed clothes with hands, and she rinsed them with hands in clean water. I can’t say I enjoyed that she helped me! But she saw how hard it was to me and her heart could not stand it. Washing for five people, especially when you live in the village - is a big deal, especially when there is a little child in the family.

 "You will be my number one assistant, dear friend!"

Nini (14-year-old): Mom never forced me to help her, but I saw how busy she was... And Mariam is so young (means her younger sister. - Ed.), she needs a lot of attention. Mom had to do a lot of things while she was sleeping. So, I always helped her with the laundry as best I could.

Madonna: Come on, Nini, you are the best daughter! When I saw your abraded wrists, my heart ached. Now this machine will do the work of one woman in our family, and you will have more time for books.

Gas water heater is also a very valuable gift for us. We’ll have hot water too! The refrigerator will help so that the food that we get with so many efforts would not spoil in the hot summer.

“Refrigerator, I wish I opened you and saw you full of sweets!”

“What a luxury, we will have hot water!”

– Have you made new friends? Who helped you, who consoled you, who do you remember the most?

Madonna: After the publication of your post, a wonderful girl - Salome Tarkhnishvili - called us, she bought food for my children. Four young guys also visited us. I do not know their names, but one could easily notice how noble they were! Oh dear, they brought us a lot of stuff! There was food for almost a month, and cleaning products - dishwashing gels, detergents.

Giorgi (11-year-old): Those guys brought us these cups too. (Shows me beautiful cups.) They also brought toys for my little sister.

“Take it, you know how delicious it is? It’s never enough!”

  Madonna: I want to say thank you to those people who took our problems to heart! Thanks to your post, our distant relatives learned about our problems. Dato Partladze, a very kind person, visited us and brought us ten bags of cement. With this cement, we patched up the holes through which rats and reptiles entered our home.

We have a stone floor. We do not have the opportunity to lay a wooden floor or laminate. But the main thing is that there are no more holes, and the children will sleep safely.

– But the stone floor is very cold, and it is difficult to heat the room in winter…

Madonna: Who cares about it. At this stage, the roof is more important. I don't even know if it can be repaired or not? It leaks horribly. The rainy season is coming, and my heart is breaking.

– Have you addressed the local authorities? Did they help you in any way?

Madonna: I addressed them! Before the elections, I asked them to fix our roof, but they told me to wait until January. And in January they refused, telling us that we have not necessary points. (She means points, assigned to socially disadvantaged families. - Ed.) I don't understand what points have to do with a roof that leaks on my children when it rains and snows. My husband is almost never at home, he works day and night without stopping, so that we do not starve and there was at least bread at home. He is a very hardworking, caring, and attentive person. What would have happened to us if it weren't for him... But we still can't live a normal life. How can we fix this nasty roof?!

But I cannot ignore the fact that after the publication of your post, they offered me a job. There was a vacancy for a cleaning lady. I would love to start working, I miss work so much. But I still have no one to leave Mariam with, she is too little. It’s too early for her to go to the kindergarten. And Giorgi needs attention and help with lessons. Besides that, if I start working, I will be left without social allowance, and, in my opinion, this is a very bad attitude. When a poor person has a low salary, he still must be entitled to a social allowance.

- I wonder what of the gifts Giorgi liked the most?

Giorgi: I liked the sweets - they were very tasty. Come to visit us more often and bring sweets, and I will treat you to tea! We’ll drink tea from beautiful cups!

Sweets always cheer up Mariam

- For sure! I see you liked the cups too.

Giorgi: I would be happy if someone gave me a bicycle. All the children here have bicycles, but I don't. If only someone would respond and make my dream come true. I really want it. And Nini wants a phone. The teacher gives her tasks to find something on the Internet, but she can’t do it from our mother’s phone. And for me bike will be enough. Oh, I want to have it so much!

– Don’t your children have access to the Internet? Do they have any gadgets?

Madonna: They need a computer or phone. But how can I ask for it? We don't even have a TV at home. They often miss online lessons. This pandemic has set us back in every way. And yet, the roof of our house worries me the most. If only it didn’t rain on us… I believe that with the help of the Lord and good people we can overcome this problem too!

- Do you often pray? Do you go to church?

Madonna: Of course, I believe in God! I pray! Do you know what I have noticed? When I find myself in a very, very hopeless situation and ask God for help, He always sends me good people.

Ten years ago, when my first husband died in a car accident, we were in a very difficult situation. Giorgi was very young then and he was sick. He was born with open heart valves. We urgently needed regular visits to the doctor. But I didn't have money. So, I prayed! I fervently prayed, prayed that my Giorgi would be healthy. At that time the phone rang. My late husband's colleague called me. The very next day he gave us enough money for all the visits. The same thing happened now... The Lord sent you to me, my good people. Once again, many thanks to all of you! I will always pray to God to give you so many capabilities that you can give joy and make many people in need happy.


Friends, with your help, a happy and beautiful day has come for another family. But their problems didn't end there. They need our help and support again. I hope that we will manage to make Nini, Giorgi, and little Mariam happy again with the new gifts. All children deserve to live in normal conditions, not to freeze, and have food!

If you have a heavy heart because of everyday problems or unresolved issues, as a distraction just see our posts on Facebook, or better call any of our beneficiaries, and all your problems will seem unimportant to you, compared with the problems of those to whom you opened your kind heart and helped in the most difficult moment of their lives.
