Computer for Moshe’s Children
Moshe, 38, moved from Ethiopia to Israel with his parents when he was six. Now divorced, he is a single parent to his 10- and 12-year old children, one of whom has special needs.
His former job was not suitable for a single father, and he was fired when trying to care for his kids. Moshe is looking for work but in the meantime, subsists on social security payments alone. These are not enough to cover even the minimum needs of the three; the children’s mother does not pay any support and is not regularly in touch with them.
These days, almost all schools require students to do at least some of their assignments on a computer, but Moshe does not have any way to purchase one, even though he recognizes the importance of their succeeding in school.
