Family T.
from Israel

Divorced
3 children

Despite her strong desire to live independently, the financial hardship that is affecting her life gave O. no choice but to turn for help. O. is a divorced mother to 3 children. The children’s father declared bankruptcy and does therefore not pay alimony. O. is greatly motivated to go out to work and support her family as she did for the past years, but she was now forced to stop due to her son’s functional difficulties in school which requires her to come to school often and take him home. The child was prematurely born with only one kidney functioning and since the age of one and a half he has been treated and is under constant developmental supervision. He suffers from ADHD and is treated accordingly but once the effect of the drug expires, the mother needs to cope with his temper tantrums and many functional difficulties. O. is an extremely devoted mother who takes care to supply her children with all their necessities even at the price of lacking from herself. In her present situation that O. can not go out to work she is desperately in need of assistance in order to survive.
