Refrigerator for Olga
Olga, 36, is living under very harsh circumstances. She and her husband, Nicholas, separated years ago, and he now lives on the street. The couple have no contact, nor does Nicholas have any relationship with their 14-year-old daughter, Mia.
Olga and Mia now live with Olga’s partner, Victor. Mia learns in a boarding school and returns home every other weekend. Both Olga and Victor suffer from numerous physical ailments and are recognized as disabled. The family of three survives on their monthly disability stipends.
Olga and Victor have been living without a working refrigerator for three months. Each morning, they buy food for that day so that nothing spoils. This is no way for anyone to live, certainly not a couple with a growing child.
