HE LIVES IN A CAVE
The “Governor” has been coming to our canteen for three years. Born in Leova, he had lived in northern Russia, being a regional deputy under the communist regime. His nickname originates from this position of authority he used to hold. Since coming back home, he did not have the necessary identity documents to restore his Moldovan citizenship. He does not receive a pension, and can only walk with the help of crutches. He is virtually homeless, sleeping in a hut dug into the earth – not a happy place when the winter temperature drops to -5 degrees Celsius. He is very pleased to receive food and clothing from our canteen.
