Bed for Sofia
Osnat, 25, is a single mother to two daughters, Sofia, aged 5, and Noa, aged 9 months. Osnat is not in contact with Sofia’s father. She is now married to Noa’s father, Tomas, who comes from Africa and is not an Israeli citizen. As a result, their marriage is not recognized by the state.
Osnat is on 100% disability due to severe emotional issues. She never finished school, didn’t perform her Army service and has never held a steady job. As a non-citizen, Tomas cannot work either which makes the couple’s financial situation extremely unstable.
Currently, Sofia is sleeping on a toddler bed which is much too small for her. As Osnat and Tomas struggle to survive, a good night’s sleep is the very least this little girl deserves.
