Only rats come here - people do not need us

The Kravchenko family lives in a nightmare! Atrophy and glaucoma took away the sight of Koba, the father of the family. Irina, his wife, lost two babies and has been grieving for them ever since. But the main pain of parents is two adult children who suffer from cerebral palsy! 20-year-old Diana has autism in addition to cerebral palsy. She can hardly walk. She was operated on her legs twice and she needs to be operated for the third time. The state of Diana's brother - 13-year-old Igor - is even worse. He can’t walk. He entirely depends on his mom and dad.

She talks to new things in a way like they are people
“My beauty has come! Do you know how long I dreamed about her? Do you know how she can help me now? Will you help me, honey?” In front of Irina was the washing machine of her dreams. She lisped with it, as with a small child, and waltzed. Still waltzing, she moved to the oven and informed the oven that she would bake delicious cookies very soon and that she will only need her "hot heart" and time control for that.
This is how Koba Kravchenko recalls the day when his socially disadvantaged family received gifts bought with donations from friends of our Fund. “At first, I thought that my wife went crazy. That she could not stand the joy that befell her after countless problems. Then I realized that in so many years of living together I had never seen Irina so happy. She expressed her emotions in such a peculiar way. I immediately ran for my phone to film it. But unfortunately, it was then that it did not turn on. It's a pity that I couldn't capture it all... " - Koba told us.
“Thank you for giving us so much joy and so many gifts!”
Koba Kravchenko, his wife, their twenty-year-old daughter and thirteen-year-old son found shelter in a dilapidated hut of their relative. This is exactly the family that constantly needs the moral and material support of other people. None of the members of this family is really healthy: for some, health has been shaken over time, while others suffer from congenital ailments.
Our Fund published a post about the Kravchenko family on February 24, 2022. You can follow the link to read it: 
–  Koba, how has your life changed after we published an article about you?
Koba: Those people who shared even the smallest things with us cannot imagine how much joy they brought us. It is such happiness to realize that you are not alone, to feel so many kind hearts next to you. This feeling always reassures unfortunate people like us. And these gifts... These are things that we did not dare even to dream of.
“All the valuables in our hut are your gifts!”
Irina: Koba's life has changed in the sense that his wife is now full of joy. (Laughs.)
Koba: And the kids are full of joy too! Diana has her own bed. It’s impossible to tear Igor away from the new TV. He watches cartoons all the time. This calms him down. If I suddenly switch to something else, he immediately starts screaming, crying, and getting angry. You know that Igor has cerebral palsy and cannot talk and move without assistance. He needs special care. In this sense, TV makes our life much easier. So, we consider the TV as a personal gift to him.
“He is in a great mood when he watches TV"
Irina: You should have seen how in the mornings, while Igor is still sleeping, Diana quietly sneaks up to the remote. She switches to the series and watches it, turning the volume down so as not to wake Igor. Because if the "dictator" wakes up we're in trouble. There will be no way for us to watch TV!
Diana, who slipped in the morning, enjoys watching TV while Igor sleeps
– Irina, which gift made you the happiest?
Irina: We were happy with absolutely everything. My husband and I had not eaten for three days, and then you sent us groceries. And we didn’t eat to somehow feed our children. The medications that we took from the pharmacy thanks to the efforts of your Fund were also very handy. We are sick people - we need medications all the time. We were very happy with the beds - we no longer have to sleep on the floor or all together. The washing machine was my cherished dream. I think you can imagine the conditions where I did the laundry.
– According to Koba, you promised the oven that you would bake a cake. Well, did you bake it?
Irina: Yes, I baked my first cake with the ingredients you sent me. When I bake next time, I will certainly invite you.
Koba: And why did you forget about the refrigerator, Irina? It made us very happy!
Irina: Of course! Diana opens the refrigerator door, then closes it. Then she opens and closes it again... She does this a thousand times a day. She smiles so much doing that, as if this is not a refrigerator, but her best friend. She really likes our new refrigerator.
"Diana loves your gift so much that she opens the refrigerator door a thousand times a day"
– Koba, have you made any new friends? Did anyone come to visit you in person to help you?
Koba: It grieves me to say it, but no one comes to us, except for representatives of the Fund.
 And we love guests so much.
- After kind people read on social networks that it hurts you so much, they will certainly visit you!
Koba: From your lips to God's ears!
Irina: We have a special friend - Salome Patsatsiya, who always visits us on holidays: Easter and New Year. May the Lord reward her a hundredfold for all the good she does for unfortunate people.
– What can you say about the support of local authorities?
Koba: They paid our utility bills for four months in the amount of 100 lari. That is 25 GEL per month. They promised to provide us with a psychologist, but he is not yet in sight. We need more help. I think this is clear to anyone who comes to our shack.
 Is there any special "investigation" necessary to get that?
- New things, although they brought joy to your life, but if taking into account all your needs, they are just a drop in the ocean. I am sure that our readers will support you more. Could you tell me what you need the most at this stage?
Irina: Mattresses, pillows, blankets, and quilts would be very handy. And also, clothes and shoes for my kids. Well, we always need food, medications, and diapers.
“Our children are people with special needs, so they need special care and attention!”
While we were talking with our parents, Diana blew us kisses and spoke in Mingrelian: "Ma si miork... Ma si miork..." which means "I love you". These words of an autistic girl also apply to all of you who took the difficulties of this family to heart, who helped or will help them in the future.
Let each of us with our good deeds respond to the love of this wonderful girl. "Ma holo miork cira, Diana!" ("I love you too, girl Diana!")
