Svetlana Alexievich Helped Large Family Who Were To Be Put On Record


The Nobel laureate was astonished by the story of a mother with many children.

The family, who were threatened with putting on record by child services because of the wallpaper covered with drawings and the sick dog, got good news again – Svetlana Alexievich helped the mother with many children with money.

The Nobel laureate was astonished by the story when the headmaster of school No. 3 threatened the mother and even strongly recommended to put to sleep the sick dog.

– I’m sending 2 thousand rubles to support ntanina Shainiuk's family, – the writer informed Radio Svaboda.

We remind that the incident was first reported by blogger Artsiom Shaparau, who had made the video. Antanina Shainiuk's case evolved into a cause celebre after the publication on the Striking News website.

By the way, the dog is fine at the moment: indifferent Homel citizens stepped in and helped financially with the operation. Now the operation to remove the cancerous tumors is over, and the dog is rehabilitating at home.

However, help was provided not only to the pet. Random people supported the family both morally and financially: in just a couple of weeks, they repapered almost all the apartment, which had also been a point of contention with the school administration.
