products way they are legally obligated to give them to charity organizations. to frank of us happy she can now invite her grandchildren to dinner. i have a very small monthly pension like four hundred fifty euros and if you have to buy coal and pay for electricity it can get pretty bad. drops by stanislav garage every week she's only thirty but is unable to work due to heart problems she's eligible for a mere one hundred sixty euros of government support not enough to get by on stanislav gives her three pizzas and some beverages which will keep the family going for about five days. this is do you know. at first i was ashamed to come here because a stranger was just passing out food and i'd never done anything like that asking a stranger for food even though i know he helps other people to me he explains to
