Elderly woman survive in a one-room house for 20 years

In Batman's central Iluh Neighborhood, 77-year-old Fahriye Işık, who struggles for her life in a narrow house for 20 years with no room no toilet and bath, amazes those who see the example of conviction shown by the woman despite the hardship and financial difficulties.

In a fight that occurred years ago, the husband of the old woman, Cemil Işık, was shot and killed when he was standing between. The old woman worked for many years as a seasonal worker, giving life struggle with a total of 7 children, 4 boys and 3 girls. The old woman who marry all her children, is now struggling to survive alone even not getting old-age pensions.

“Sometimes I just eat dry bread”

"I will not go to the house of rest," said woman, “I am living alone more than 20 years, I am old and sick, there is no water in my house, there is no one to fill my ewer with water so I can perform ablution. Sometimes neighbors bring me food. Sometimes U just eat dry bread. The house is cold, especially the winters are unbearable. I stay here because there is nowhere that I can go.”

“I get the old age wage only once”

“Poverty and old age pensions should be given to me” said the elderly woman and added, “They have cut my poverty and old age wages for more than 2 years. I live with the help of Muslims. I eat whatever comes from my neighbors. Someone took my old age pension, and took the half and gave the rest to me. I have not paid my wages since that time.”

Işık expressed the fact that a neighbor has died while sleeping and that she is also afraid of dying alone, says, “I fear that if I die while I sleep alone in my house. I will not be noticed by anybody. I have an old neighbor like me, she live with her children. I sometimes go next to her and sleep in her room. If there is such a possibility like home care services, I will be very glad. If something like that happens, she will fill my ewer with water and cook for me.”

“It will be great if The Social Assistance Foundation give me food”

Işık, who joyfully told that someone brought a hot meal to her while she went to the health center for her illness, added: “I have a wire and electric cooker and sometimes I cook myself on it. Sometimes it broke and it gets harder for me. Food given to my neighbors by Social Assistance Foundation. I live alone and it will be great if they give me food too. This room I stay was a shop. A Muslim turned it into a room for me. I was going to work if there was a job in any city while I could work but I got older and I can’t work now.” (M. Fatih Akgül - ILKHA)
