Ten-year-old Nodar is surrounded by a family of loving women, but they cannot shield him from the difficulties of his life. Nodar's parents are divorced and his father provides no support.
Nodar is being raised by his mother, an unemployed dentist, in the capital city of Georgia. The two live with Nodar's aunt, grandmother, and great-grandmother in a one-bedroom house which could collapse at any minute. The bathroom was already destroyed in an earthquake and the entire house is unstable.
They must use an outhouse and have neither heat nor hot water to keep warm during Georgia's harsh winters. Nodar is often sick in the winter and has been hospitalized several times.
The family's only income is the meager pensions the grandmother and great-grandmother receive, but this money is not enough to support a family of five.
For families like Nodar's, Passover isn't an anticipated day of celebration, it's just another day of struggle to survive.
This is why every year The Fellowship provides Passover food boxes to impoverished families like Nodar's, full of needed staple foods such as flour, oil, and fresh produce, as well as special foods, like matzah and grape juice, needed to properly observe Passover.
When you give to our Passover Campaign, you are putting into action the words of Isaiah 58:10, "If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday."
And please consider helping impoverished families like Nodar's throughout the year by becoming one of our monthly supporters.
