Beds for Liya and her children
Liya, now 36, moved to Israel from Ethiopia when she was five years old.
Twelve years ago, she got married; from the start, Liya experienced emotional abuse at the hands of her husband. Two years ago, the abuse turned physical; afraid for her family’s safety, Liya took her five children (ages 2-10) and moved in with her elderly father.
Liya graduated high school with full matriculation exams and has trained as a secretary and an event designer. At the moment, however, she isn’t working outside of the home.
The conditions in her father’s house are less than ideal; Liya and her children sleep in one room and share four mattresses. Needless to say, she cannot currently afford to buy beds.
If Liya could get help buying beds for her family, there is no doubt that their quality of life would greatly improve.
