“Everyone can offend an artist, since not everyone can financially support them.”
When Irina called us, as usual, we studied her history and checked her documents, however, it was unclear how the Fund could help out in her situation. After all, we help solve the problem, allow the person to stand up on their feet again, we “give a fishing rod” (call it what you want), but we do not pay monthly benefits and do not provide ongoing support.
Her story is as follows: after an industrial injury, Irina became disabled, she could no longer work fulltime, and the allowance she received for her disability is too small - not even enough to rent an apartment. Fortunately, Irina is an artist (she makes jewelry from natural stones, paints pictures). This allowed her to earn some extra money by selling her pieces at fairs, until the quarantine began. And then began- the debts on the apartment, communal bills on the building, and the suspension of all optional payments...
In addition, Irina decided to help a friend who fell ill, she took him to the hospital and signed up to pay the costs of his treatment (as he did not have medical insurance), now Irina also has a huge debt to the hospital. So, the standard resolution does not solve the problem...
So we decided to do an experiment, to help Irina sell her artwork. You can purchase any of your favorite jewelry or paintings (delivery in Israel is included in the price) and thereby support a very good and optimistic person. Pictures of the work can be viewed in the links below. Let’s give it a try?
