Beds for Ayelet’s children
Ayelet’s story is heartbreaking. Married to Shimon for 14 years, Ayelet suffered emotional, physical, sexual and financial abuse. A year ago, after she was nearly beaten to death, Ayelet reported her husband to the police and left him. He is now under house arrest.
Ayelet is currently living in a government subsidized apartment with her seven children, ages 2-13. She works part time and supports her family with her income and a monthly government subsidy. She is barely making ends meet.
The conditions in Ayelet’s two-bedroom apartment are rather dire. It is sparsely furnished and most of what the family has is old and broken.
Ayelet’s most desperate need right now are new beds for her children. Some are sleeping on old, unstable beds and some on mattresses on the floor.
As Ayelet tries to pull her life together, her growing children deserve a good night’s sleep.
