A community in Georgia is worrying about its members.
TEMI-community in Gremi, a little village in the north-east of Georgia close to the Caucasian mountains, is a community where people with different backgrounds come together to care, live and work for and with each other.
In a country like Georgia where social structure is mainly defined by family and relatives, this is a very unfamiliar and new approach.
Approximately 65 people live in TEMI. Out of the 50 people in need of assistance, only 27 are currently receiving financial support by the government.
The further 23 beneficiaries including young mothers with their babies, neglected and partially handicapped children and adults from torn-apart families and elderly people lacking family support, have to somehow be fed and cared for.
Because of the undeveloped social-system in Georgia such misfortunes have no hope of any civil support.
Even though we are doing everything in our power to make TEMI as independent and self-sustaining as possible, we are reaching the end of our financial possibilities and maybe forced to face the fact that we have to send away some of our members.
We are now looking and hoping for donators able to sponsor those affected people on regular bases so they can stay in TEMI.
