Family M.

Single mom
6 children

M. is a single mother of 6 young children, an Ethiopian immigrant, with no child support, no housing, in terribly difficult financial straits. During the home visit we made, there was a blatant shortage of food in the home. M. frequently reaches out to Social Services asking for basic food products, in an effort to feed her 6 children. Despite working long hours outside of the house, she still can’t manage to come-up with the money to pay her rent on time, and she’s already amassed a debt of 8,000 NIS in rent. Providing food for her children, is of primary importance!

Family G.

Married
4 children under 20 years old

When the doctors diagnosed a growth in my head, all I thought about was who will bring up my children. I have 10 children at home and during the first years of our marriage we lived off child benefit only. A few years ago I went out to work in order to improve the financial situation but due to my health condition I can’t work at a permanent job and for the last 2 years I have not worked at all. I hardly manage alone with the upbringing of the children and the running of the house but I try my best to take care of my children’s needs. Due to the severe financial situation at home and my difficult health condition some of the children suffer from various emotional problems. Your help with food coupons will greatly alleviate my stress knowing that at least the children are not lacking food.

Family M.

Married
5 children

Family M. consists of a couple who are separated and 5 children. The family is undergoing many difficulties and is in a severe financial situation. The father does not live at home and pays a meagre child support. The mother works per hour and is responsible for all the expenses of the house. During the last years, the mother suffered from a bad depression which influences her functioning at home and at work.

The children are forced to function and manage the household on their own during this difficult period.

Family h.

Married
7 children

The financial pressure was the primary cause of their divorce. Worry, debt and endless arguments over even the smallest expenditure. The marriage counselor who began working with them at the very last second, saved the entire home. Both parents work full time jobs, but don’t manage to support their family of 9, pay bills, cover the rent, and afford groceries. Both of them are dedicated parents, neither had difficult upbringings other than growing up to families in extreme poverty. Who decided that poverty has to run in their DNA? Why do they as adults have to relive the financial hardships of their parents? Why should a parent who bore witness to their own parents’ struggle to put food on their plate, now calculate the size of each portion they feed their own child? Maybe it could be different. At least with regard to the food, the thing lacking most in this home, we could help them be a little less penurious? With your help, let’s cut them a little slack and allow them to properly and generously feed their children. So that with Mom and Dad are busy working multiple shifts, at least their kids shouldn’t go hungry.

Family M.

Married
6 children

Five children crammed into one room without an inch of floor space… incomprehensible crowding. The father learns in Kollel, and the mother who suffers from a chronic disease is the sole supporter of this family of 9. They live in a rented apartment, horribly crowded. The majority of their furniture they bought online secondhand… but there is one thing these parents won’t forgo - and that’s keeping a well-stocked fridge. While the children may lack toys, and their clothes are systematically destroyed from black mold in the closets, these kids won’t lack food to eat. If we’ll just help with the grocery bill, we’d enable them to free-up some of their income to cover the rest of the children's needs, which are of no less importance.

Family F.

Married
4 children

A. and F. are a perfectly normal couple, with 4 little children. If you would have told them two years ago that they would need handouts just to get-by (!) they wouldn't have believed you! But then came the Covid19 crisis which left them out of a job - an endless unpaid-leave that gradually brought their finances to utter collapse. The family has a partially handicapped child, and their modest expenses coupled with this child’s needs, brought this family to the point that without our help, they won’t be able to get through these difficult times in a dignified manner.
