Bed for Hilel and his wife
Hillel, 58, is suffering from a terrible illness. The rare affliction has left him with difficulties eating and with a dependence on an oxygen tank. This and difficulty climbing the stairs have made leaving the house almost impossible.
In addition, his kidneys are failing from diabetes; when he does go out, it is for medical treatments and dialysis. Hillel can no longer work and is deemed “completely disabled.”
Hillel’s wife has left her job as well, in order to stay home and care for him. Their home is run down, with water damage that is destroying the ceiling and walls. Termites that have eaten through their bed, closet, and living room furniture.
A new sturdy bed, with an intact mattress, would go a long way toward alleviating Hillel’s suffering, but without their jobs, their income is too low for them to buy one.
