Two years ago, while he was away from Sănătăuca, Florești to Chișinău, where he worked, Alexandru Pușcaș learned shocking news – the mother abandoned her children. The little ones went to the neighbors to find something to eat. The man immediately returned home.
“I kept wondering if I could handle it. I was afraid, but I got used to it. Now I can’t live without them. At first I told them that she would come. I didn’t want to tell them, so as not to stress them out. But in the end I said that my mother abandoned them. I know a child wants to have a mother. I know how much I suffered and I understand that my children also suffer”, said the grieving father.
And Alexandru grew up without parents – his mother died when he was small, and his father left him in the care of his grandmother. The man decided that no matter how hard it was, his children would have parental warmth.
“I sleep here, I put the little one in that crib. Here are three pieces of sofas, I took boards, joined them to accommodate the children. I put pieces of pork under them. And the biggest domes here”, said Alexandru.
In order to provide for his children, aged between 2 and 12 years, the man is ready for any work around the village, and the older children help him in the household.
“I wake up at 6, I make them tea. While they drink tea, I prepare their clothes. They dress themselves. Then the older ones take the younger ones to kindergarten and go to school. And I prepare food, I do everything else around the house. While the little girl sleeps, I take care of chores around the yard. When he wakes up – I go into the house and start preparing food”, Alexandru shared with us his activities on a typical day.
The history of this family sensitized the representatives of the Association for the Support of Community Initiatives and Sports, who decided to pay them a visit and offer them support on Easter Eve.
“We decided it was our duty to help you. We are delighted how you manage, single-handedly, to take care of so many children, provide them with everything they need and most importantly – parental love. We have brought you several food products and detergents that we hope will be of help to you. You told us that kids dream of a new TV. I hope they will like it and our help will make your life easier”, said ASICS director Victoria Kriukova.
The ASICS association also offered the Pușcașu family the sum of 20,000 lei to connect the washing machine to the sewer network and buy a new sofa for the children.
