22.02.2008
On February 18 Badinda Bastova, 4 years and 6 months old child was brought to Akhaltsikhe District Hospital with the complicated form of Hepatitis A. As the child was in a very bad condition, the doctors of Akhaltsikhe District Hospital called for a TMCC medical services in order to transfer the child to Tbilisi. However, the Center refused to receive the child, alleging that they did not have spare bed in the emergency ward of the hospital department. The child is currently trying to beat back the illness with the support of his doctors. Badina has been living in village Abastumani, Adigeni District with her 7 brothers and sisters for the last year. Since she is a Meskhi-Georgian by ethnic group, which is a Georgian Muslim by religion. Badina's family thinks that her religion was the main reason for TMCC refusing treatment to the child. This group was departed from Georgia under the period of Joesph Stalin and have only recently been allowed to return when Georgia reached an agreement with the Council of Europe.
