This amazing story in the style of "Thousand and One Nights" began in the East, in Turkmenistan, where on the day of the signing of the preliminary protocol on the surrender of fascist Germany in May 1945, Makhinur Bursakova was born in the small town of Bayram-Ali.
Her parents were monotonous people: father – journalist, mum – the teacher. But raised the children tough, according to the canons of Islam.
Once a film crew from the Mosfilm studio came to Bairam-Ali in search of nature and a casting for the role of girls from the harem was held on local material.
Makhinur also took part in screen tests, for which Suvoro was punished by her father "for shame". One can only imagine, what would happen to the girl, if parents knew, that their daughter is secretly meeting with a young lieutenant of the Soviet Army, which is not only, what is not a muslim, but in general a Jew… after all, according to local laws, she was long ago married in absentia to the son of a rich bai. The wedding gifts have already been brought to the bride's house, and the day of celebration was planned. "Marry the unloved? Never!», – said Makhinur and, under cover of night, fled from her father's house to her beloved.
To avoid bloody revenge, the command of the unit transferred Sasha Badiner first to Dushamba, and then to Leningrad. He finished his military career in Ukraine, in Khmelnytsky. Sasha and Makhinur had two daughters by this time – Venus and Lena, but the curse of the Turkmen relatives did their dirty deed – the youngest Lenochka was born with numerous illnesses and was considered disabled in infancy.
Years passed. Alexander Badiner passed away. Makhinur dared to visit her brother after her parents died, who served in Ashgabat in the personal protection of the Turkmen-bashi, and numerous Turkmen relatives. For the first time in 40 years old. The resentment against parents passed with their death, but that's what her father's name is, – No one knows. Makhinur has no middle name in his passport, written simply by Mahinur Badiner.
The years haven't erased her beauty – classic oriental facial features, gorgeous hair, slightly slanted eyes… But, which is strange, she considers herself a Khmelnitsky. Moreover – a member of the Jewish community, on the day of remembrance of the beloved deceased husband. Makhinur attended all Jewish holidays with pleasure, organized by the Hesed Besht charitable foundation, at the Day Center, she treated her new friends with amazing Turkmen pilaf (»Food»), manti (»Berek»), gave me national tea. Whoever has tried chorba will never forget it…
Soon great joy came to the house. Lena showed courage and, despite asthma, ulcer, hernia, hypertension and epileptic seizures, gave birth to a healthy son. In honor of his grandfather he was named Sasha.
… Six months ago, Makhinur suffered a severe stroke. Lena refused to hospitalize her. "I will not give mom to the wrong hands" – and all. For four hours, social workers of "Hesed Besht" persuaded Elena to put Makhinur in the hospital. AND, Fortunately, got through to her prudence. Already in the ambulance, my mother had a volvulus, them. Badiner was taken by ambulance directly to the intensive care unit.
She survived. Moreover – is recovering quickly. Rehabilitation technologies "Khesed" once again confirmed their right to life. Orthopedic pillows, comfortable mattress, toilet playpen, special coasters and bath seats, and most importantly – constant care, patronage care, psychologist consultations and specialist trainings – everything contributed to recovery. Even, it would seem that, such household stuff, like diapers, diaper, hygiene detergents, provided by the Foundation.
What a sin to hide, family life is not easy. Choking with asthma, immobile due to obesity daughter with a terrible 15 kg hernia, which doctors are afraid to operate, fearing for Elena's life. And the mother just starting to speak after an illness, who has to learn to walk again… "Chesed" helps them, what can – products, medicines, solves small and large household problems – washing, cleaning, repairs… Sponsors from Holland, who have been fruitfully cooperating with the Fund for several years, pay for utilities.
And the family also has Sasha. He already 10 years old. He successfully practices karate, recently got a black belt. "Chesed" provides him with school supplies, clothes, footwear. On holidays, he rests for free in children's camps. They should improve their health at least a little, – and you can live – do not grieve.
The name Makhinur, unusual in our area, means "moonlight" from Persian, Badiner – translated from German – joker, rogue. And indeed, what kind of intrigues of fate do not happen in this world. Jewish foundation helps to survive in Khmelnytskyi Turkmen woman, funded by the Jerusalem branch of the American Charitable Organization "Joint".
