We will help families with small children - we will support them until the Fall!
“Just two months and life will get better. You need to be a little patient and we will buy brand new shoes and finally we will pay for the electricity”, - this is how one Jewish mother sang her four children to bed at night. And once they fell asleep, she quietly cried into her pillow, because she understood that it was hard not only for her family. It was hard for everyone now.
In the summer, kindergartens are closed, schools on vacation and the small children are home, no grandmothers are around, hence there is no way for the mother to go out and work. The husband is doing his best to earn a living at a low-paying job, as he is a new immigrant. But the needs keep growing bigger and bigger. All the savings are already used up and gone, pension savings have been withdrawn, and it seems all that remains is to rely on G-d.
The mother prayed and didn't blame anyone. But the tears…they are from exhaustion. She worries about the children, about the everyday, and thinks about where to get money for the next check for their rented apartment. But when her husband comes home late at night after a long day at work, she wipes away her tears and tries very hard not to show her true feelings. She supports him as best she can and tells him every day: "To hold out until the fall, when I can go back to work, then it will be easier!"
Over the past month, the Fund has received 5 (!!) applications from families with similar stories like this one. The small children are all over and only the dads go to work. Due to circumstances known to all of us, incomes fell, and families found themselves in extremely difficult situations. Improvements are expected in the fall, but before that these families need some help. Please help us assist these families.
Thus, we are opening this page for several families at once. Any amount you donate will help them get through the difficulties.
Click on the "Help Now" button and donate any amount. Today you will do it, in a minute your neighbor, in another hour your relative, and by tomorrow hopefully at least one family with small children will be able to pay their rent. By supporting those who are weaker, you receive multiple merits!
You will be bale to see all the reports when we finish fundraising and distributing to the families.
The total amount for 5 families is 62,000 shekels.
