Beds for Liat and Max’s Children
Lisa’s eyesight has been declining for years; she is now almost completely blind. In the past, she worked as a cleaner and at other temporary jobs, but these are now impossible for her.
She is looking for a position that she can fill despite her vision problems. In the meantime, she does not bring in any income. The family is therefore reliant on her husband’s low salary.
Max works as a driver for a supply company based at an airport. Two of the couple’s young children also have very poor eyesight, while the third has delayed development and is a candidate for special education classes next year.
The three children sleep in one bedroom, on a worn mattress on the floor. There is no space for three beds in the room, but a three-part trundle that can be opened at night would suit them well and allow them a good night’s sleep.
There is no leeway in Lisa and Max’s budget to buy furniture, much though they would like to do the best they can for the children.
