The building will be demolished… It will disappear soon. And the people living there, may disappear too. They have nowhere to go, no one is waiting for them. Not a single soul is behind them. If something happens to them, we will find out about it too late. Probably, on a payday, when Natia will not come to the store to pay off her debts.
She is a single mother. In Georgia, it sounds like a “sentenced” to capital punishment - lifelong torment!
“I remember when I was seven years old, after school I bought candles and icons and sold them at triple price! I earned money to buy medications for dad and bread for my mother and brother. I ate in the street. I went to areas remote from my school, so as not to stumble upon my classmates. Stumbling upon them would be tantamount to death for me! -says Natia, smiles and adds: – It was the most happy and beautiful period in my life. At least my parents were alive then, and I thought that my dad would get back on his feet soon, that mom would stop crying, and we would live happily. But my dad never got back on his feet ... after a lengthy and debilitating liver disease he died. My mom “followed him” one year later. Her heart couldn't take it. She cried every day, hugged his photo, and asked to take her to him! She just forgot about us. That’s why my children are the most important thing to me.”
“I might not eat for days, but I will never leave my children hungry”
– Can you recall anything good?
Natia: I don't even know... probably no. Even when I gave birth to my children, I was nervous then. The father of the children promised me mountains of gold, but when I was pregnant with my second child, I accidentally found out that he had a family. I thought that an adult man, 20 years older than me, would be my father, my older brother, and husband. I thought I would be safe behind him as if behind a stone wall. I was 23 years old then! I was inexperienced, suffering, and exhausted by life. I thought I found my happiness, I found my beloved one, I thought my life would become easier. But it got worse! I had no parents, no home, no education - and had little children in my arms...
“This ruin is a palace to me!”
- How did you find yourself here?
Natia: You won’t believe! One lady, the kindest Georgian lady, saw me in the street. I was pregnant, hungry, I was with my little child. I cried, I had no money and no hope to survive. She said that she lived in Borjomi in some building, the building of a former veterinary laboratory. I agreed. I just had nowhere to go, no one to ask for help. A complete stranger can become closer to you than your mother or sister.
- Do you live together?
Natia: No. She recently left abroad to work and let me live here. She is just my Angel. And my Angel's name is Marekhi. She even promised to help me too when she earns enough money. How can a person be so kind? I don't know. I’ve never seen people like her. The fact that my children are now alive is only her merit. She left me everything that belonged to her: dishes, beds. Come on, I'll show you.
“Everything you see here is not mine, it belongs to my Guardian Angel”
- It looks like even your angel had a hard time living here ...
Natia: Oh! This is a real palace to my children and me. Although we so dream of a normal home.
- What’s a normal home to you?
Natia: One where you have a bathroom and a toilet. And you have water there. And there is no need to carry water from afar. To have a clean room and beds, a table and at least three chairs. This is the real palace.
“I want food to be everywhere. Here and there"
Ilia (6-year-old): And so that there was food everywhere! You open the closet - there is food. You look at the table - and there is food! And under the bed - there is also food!
Rati (2-year-old): And “kuki” and “rolly” everywhere.
Rati can investigate the refrigerator two hundred times a day in the hope that either "kuki" or "rolly" will appear there.
Ilia: This is what he calls cookies and sweets. In the morning, he starts crying: “kuki, rolly... kuki, rolly”, and does not stop!
- What about you?
Ilia: I am not a little boy. Well, it happens sometimes. I cry because I want a toaster...
- Why do you need a toaster? I thought you also wanted “rolly” or toys, like other children.
Ilia: When we got here, there was one magical thing. You put regular bread in there. If it is dry, then you can wet it and sprinkle with salt. Or, butter it up if you have butter. You put bread in there, close it, wait, wait, wait, and it becomes like real delicious food. So yummy! It will make your mouth water!
“If I had a toaster, I would “treat” you with bread!”
– What do you dream about, besides a toaster and food?
Ilia: I dream about becoming a car mechanic. They have cars and a lot of money!
- Let’s suppose that you have already become the coolest car mechanic and have earned a lot of money. And now you're going to the store. What would you buy first?
Ilia: A toaster and dishes for mommy. And bread, and butter, and sweets. And that's it, probably.
“We have neither gas nor water – we live like primitive people”
Natia: I think they love cookies and sweets more than mom. It is something unusual to them. Very rarely, when I manage to save some money, I buy sweets. Because every day we have rice and pasta, rice and pasta, rice and pasta... We're sick of it. But what can we do?
- Children can have health problems due to inadequate food.
Natia: A few months ago, Ilia started to choke. I was so scared! I took him to the doctor immediately. She prescribed him inhalations, she said that it was not asthma, but an attack of wheezing - probably caused by the conditions in our house. Look at the walls - they're covered with mold! I am grateful to God that nothing serious has happened to my children yet.
“One cylinder is barely enough for two weeks just to cook food. And to fill it, you need go far.”
- You probably need a nebulizer and medications for your child?
Natia: No, one good girl gave me a nebulizer, and fortunately he does not need medications. I need food most of all.
- And what about beds? And bedding? You have nothing!
Natia: No. All I need is groceries, clothes for the kids, maybe a table and chairs. There is no point to ask for a washing machine - we have no water. We don’t need fridge - we have nothing to store in it. There are the beds left from the previous owner. It would be great if you bring us cookies too... They do not spoil, right? So, I will give the boys one piece every morning! That would be cool! And I don't need anything else. Really! Oh, I almost forgot, I need a table!
“Instead of a table, we have a rotten board that my mother put on a log”
Ilia: While I save a lot of money, can you bring me a toaster? And for Rati, two cars and two “weapons”. We will shoot and play races together!
- Maybe you want me to bring you some yummies?
Ilia: I don’t know what food I like, I forgot it. Okay, bring me something. See you later!
“Bring me cookies and sweets! Please!”
Single mother Natia has a hard life. She was left completely alone with two children in her arms. The poor woman clings to life, tries not to die from hunger and cold, but her meager social allowance is not enough even to provide her children with the most basic conditions. Her children - two-year-old Rati and six-year-old Ilya - live in a terrible, moldy, completely rotten room, which is about to be demolished! They sleep on a collapsed bed and are constantly malnourished. They have no clothes, no shoes. Friends, should Georgian children grow up in such conditions?
They really need our support. They will be grateful for any help: food, diapers, clothes and shoes. They also asked us for a table, chairs, and a toaster! There is no sense in helping them with renovation or buying them appliances. We need to make them feel that not only relatives can worry about their life but even the strangers can too.
Their address is: Borjomi, Papa settlement. (The building of the former veterinary clinic.)
Every time you can help someone, just do it and rejoice that God answers someone's prayers through you!
We are sure that all together we will manage to save this family from imminent death.
