Is life good for tree kids living in a dilapidated public toilet?!

October 18, 2022
Tea made a living room in a former public WC. One can do anything when he has nowhere to live with his three children. The taxi driver dropped them and their belongings off at night in an empty field near an abandoned building - as she asked - and hurried to leave. They can kill you and stab with a knife in such an abandoned place. And she crossed herself and stepped into this empty, dark building with baby Gabriel, five-year-old Shio, and nine-year-old Tekla.

My children are lucky: they saw the sea of love!


Tea: "My children thought nobody loved them, but you gave them an ocean of love!"

“I have never seen anything like this in my life - people came and brought gifts without even telling their names,” - says Tea, a mother of three. “Oh my God, we have met so many kind people!  How lucky my children are!  They not only brought us gifts but also didn't forget to say warm words to my children: “Tekla, you are very pretty and nice”; “Shio, you are very smart and kind”; “Gabi, you are golden and sweet” ... Look how happy the children are, how they have changed. Do you remember the nightmare we lived in?”

We remember well how a single mother of three tried to survive by adapting a public toilet for housing. The children had no food, no conditions. They lived without hope and joy."

- It is incredible, look how Gabriel ran to hug you, - Tea exclaims and covers her face with her hands.  God, this has never happened before.  He opened up.

- Now Gabriel and I will hug, and he will show me his new train and railway, and then we will talk about the news."

Tea: You can hug each other as much as you want! (laughs with joy). I just can't wait to tell you that this is all thanks to the educational toys, the bicycle, and the TV that your readers gave him. He does not have the autism that the doctors suspected. He just needed a human setting.

Gabriel is now open to communication. He shows us his new toys and bike

Gabriel had not just a birthday, but a real celebration! Thanks to the Fund and your readers, for the first time we allowed ourselves to have a birthday party. I had the opportunity to shop for 400 lari and buy my son a cake.  He received so many gifts that day! When they brought him the bicycle, he jumped up and shouted: 'Wow!  Wow!' This is a child who had never expressed his emotions before, who rarely had any contact with anyone.

Shio: I'm a candy-harvesting machine, I'm going to grab everything!

Shio: "Okay, enough playing around, let's hurry up and eat!"

- Tea, you mentioned people who changed your life. Even if they did not give their names, it would still be nice to talk about them.

Tea: Oh, I can talk about these fantastic people endlessly. A few days ago, a guy came in and brought Gabriel a computer. And he had already recorded many cartoons for Gabi on it. He just turned the computer on, showed him how it worked, and left without saying his name. I barely had time to say "thank you". And I am saying it here.

A teenage girl, no older than 15, came to visit us on her birthday with her mother and brought some treats. She didn't take any pictures to post on Facebook because she felt that Tekla was shy and didn't want to be photographed.  She understood her like a peer (teenagers are so vulnerable - you have to be careful with them) and showed great thoughtfulness.

I managed to get two names. Mr. David gave Gabriel some toys. Mr. Zurab "dressed" us from head to toe (laughs). There were so many different clothes - coats, jackets, sweaters, and more - that we gave some to our neighbors. We gave away whatever was too big or too small for our children. Both David and Zurab are very kind-hearted people. They talked with our children, gave advice, encouraged them, and praised them.

I want to thank the group of militaries for their help. One wonderful person from Kakheti even offered me a place to stay.  "Come and live as long as you want," he said." “I can provide you half of the house."  I appreciate his kindness. If it weren't for Gabi's serious health problems and the need to live near the hospital, I would have agreed to move.  But I can't take any risks. God, we accept this kindness!  And when the time comes, my adult children will return it.

- Tekla, what gift did you like the most?

Tekla: My personal tablet. And that my mom and brothers are so happy.

"It's so great to have my own bike!  Now I can ride as much as I want!"

Tea: Of course, your mom is happy. Sure! Finally, we stopped flooding our neighbors.  Finally, I got rid of old pipes and faucets in the kitchen and bathroom. Thanks to the Fund, we changed all the plumbing. You can wash dishes well, you can turn on the washing machine, take a bath, and nothing leaks or drips.”

Tea: "Of course, mom is happy!  We solved so many problems at home!”

We have a new washing machine, it's such beauty!  And have I already boasted about my fridge?  The people in need must have a fridge because it is impossible to cook every day - we have to save something. And the fridge helps us a lot with that.

Tea: "You'll see for yourselves how quickly things get done now.  We'll talk, and in the meantime, one load of laundry will be done"

Tekla: Mom, won't you leave me anything to brag about?

Tea: Go ahead, dear.

Tekla: The TV helps Gabi a lot. He started saying his first words. Thank you for bringing us all the things we needed. I listen to music and do school assignments on the tablet, and watch movies.

Tekla: “I do my homework and listen to music on my tablet.  Right now, I'm into rock music”

- There is not even need to ask - I can see how your mood has changed.

Tekla: I have become more confident, and I have a strong motivation to take on something new.

- Like what?

Tekla: I want to learn how to play the electric guitar and perform rock music.  I feel like I can do anything.

- Great!  That's the best attitude for a teenager.

Tea: I'm an adult woman, but after the project, I have also become more confident in myself.   I gained strength and energy from all of you to keep living and fighting.  The kids are calmer and in a great mood.  They thought no one loved them and no one cared about them, but kind people warmed them with their love and attention. I want to express my immense gratitude to the Fund for bringing my voice to the government's attention. They noticed us and our problems.

- I know that the former Minister of Health and Deputy David Sergeenko visited you. What’s up with gas and electricity now? Are there any changes?

Tea: Mr. David Sergeenko made every effort, he really wanted to help solve our problem.  But the issue is complicated, and one person's efforts are not enough. We are asking for gas and electricity to be installed, but the government says that our building has an owner, and they cannot intervene.  82 families, 102 children, we live in fear of the unknown owner (by the way, we have not seen him once in four years).  The government does not take responsibility for us. State cannot turn people into beggars for gas and electricity.  If my Gabi does not have electricity for inhalation, I will start stealing electricity.

- What else can we do to help, Tea?

Tea: I don't dare to ask for anything else from you until winter. It's not cold anymore without windows...


Dear friends, good deeds can be done at any time of the year! If you have the opportunity to help Tea install windows, you can do it right now, without waiting for winter.  Thank you for giving hope to children's souls!"

Thank you for your love and thoughtfulness! Thank you for lighting the flame of hope in the hearts of children!
