After-school program for Hagit and Ram’s children
Afternoon programs for their two young children (ages 1.5 and 4) will no doubt help Hagit and Ram get back on their feet.
Noam, the couple’s youngest child, was born with a severe heart defect. As an infant, he underwent open-heart surgery. He receives a monthly disability stipend. Needless to say, the situation put the family into financial and emotional turmoil.
Ram himself had a difficult childhood. He was orphaned at a very young age and put in foster care. Today, he works as a counselor in a boarding school for at-risk youth.
Hagit used to work as an assistant in a nursery but had to stop working in order to care for Noam.
Hagit and Ram are struggling financially, especially given Ram’s low income and Noam’s high medical bills. They recently joined a social services program that helps impoverished families build a solid plan for the future. Among other steps they hope to take, Hagit plans to start working again.
This is a couple that is determined to build a stable future for their children. If they could get help sending their two children to after-school programs, they will have more time and energy to put towards moving forward.
