Georgian journalist Tamuna Museridze was included in the BBC’s list of 100 most influential women of 2023.
The BBC writes that Museridze, while searching for her biological parents, discovered that in the 1950s, a large black market of baby trafficking existed in Georgia, as a result of which thousands of babies were adopted by illegal parents.
In order for people to find their missing relatives, Museridze created a group on Facebook called “Vedzeb” (Looking For), which has more than 230,000 members.
“Museridze’s organization has helped hundreds of families to reunite, but she is still looking for her own family,” writes the BBC.
Museridze responded to the BBC’s inclusion in the list of influential women on the social media.
“This year, for the first time, the BBC was interested in the developments in Georgia!!! This year, for the first time, a Georgian woman was included in the list of world influential women!!! This year, along with Michelle Obama, I was in this list!!! I’m still shaking and I may not be able to organize the text well. But the main thing is that it was all worth it. Not understanding the truth and fighting for the truth was worth it! Never give up on your goals, never back down. Never give up and remember: with the bad, good must come!” Museridze wrote.
