Description : Lidya is an Ossetian refugee from Georgia. She was a street cleaner. She had a stroke one year and a half ago and she has been bedridden ever since. Her son was killed during the first conflict, and she has two brothers, but they are not interested in seeing her. Because she is too young (she is only 49), she has no pension. The ICRC is trying to get her an invalid pension, and in the meantime, is providing her with instant meals, bread and sugar.
