If we die, no one will know about it
Akaki: You live, you faithfully serve your country, and when trouble happens to you, they don’t even remember you. They create all the conditions for you to die as soon as possible. Tell me, smart people, how to live? How not to die? I had a broken leg, a heart surgery - a bypass. My wife's leg was amputated, and she is blind. She recently had a stroke. We are 59 years old - we have not yet reached retirement age, so we only receive a disability pension - 140 GEL per month. This is not enough even for a healthy person.And what should we do when 140 lari is not enough even for a week's supply of medications? If not for our neighbors, we would have starved to death!
- How can we alleviate your suffering?
Akaki: We are very pleased that you have shown attention to our problems. We have one big dream: my wife dreams of a wheelchair, and I dream of a washing machine. We will never be able to buy these two things ourselves, and without them, our nightmarish life turns into a living hell.
