Guria. Students of the leadership school of the "Young
Pedagogues' Union" have filmed the documentary "I would like to be my
own doctor". The film is about the life of a 5-year-old boy living with
the aunt's family. At the moment of filming the family faced several problems.
Namely, their state allowance was cancelled, the child required urgent
operation and the child needed the formal status of a person with disability.
In addition, the family had difficulties in becoming the part of the Relatives'
foster care program.
Students of the
leadership school are advocating for the family's problems. At this point the
family has received the rating scores and the policy of socially unprotected
family that covers the costs of operation.
As for the inclusion in
the foster care program, the boy's aunt has re-addressed the Ozurgeti Social
Service Agency and now awaits its decision.
