The local government accommodated the Kemashvili family of four members in several rooms of the former building of ambulatory. The roof of the building had been fixed by the expenses of local government before moving in. “We were given oven, beds and a blanket. Some people brought products and we are living normally now. When I was homeless I slept on the streets. My 2- month-old child died. Now I have to wash his clothes and keep it,” – stated Nino Kemashvili.

Kemashvilis’ only source of income is chars.
