Charity Table on a Tbilisi street stolen and food thrown away
A few days ago yet another good and kind campaign was launched in Tbilisi. The so called Charity Table or “Table of Kindness” full of sandwiches similar to the Social Fridge in Rustavi city has been placed on Pekini Street #19 aiming to help those in need . The rule was simple, anyone could bring some food or sandwiches for those who suffer from hunger and subsequently anyone who is financially challenged could take food for free. The initiative was successfully carried out, many citizens got involved in this positive project and it was planned to create such charity corners in many districts of the city.

However, unfortunately an act of vandalism took place on February 7, the table was stolen and around 50 new sandwiches were thrown into the trash bin, David Wiseman, one of the authors of the Charity Table, reports on his
Facebook account. Morover, the banner indicating the campaign was torn down as well. The investigation is already underway by the Georgian police. As David Wiseman reports, he doubts that this vandalism could have been done by the so called fake beggars, who accused the organizers of the campaign in hindering them from collecting money from the passersby. In response to this act, David Wiseman wrote on his social media page that they will not give up, on the contrary, much better tables will be installed and no one will be hungry anymore and searching for food in the garbage bins.
