Beds for Reeva’s boys
When Reeva was 17, she was in a car accident that led to several operations from which she never completely recovered. A year later, she married the guy she had been dating for a few months. The marriage was rocky from the start, and the couple separated and got back together a number of times. After three years, they divorced. Reeva, now 24, was left to raise three sons, now ages three, two and one, on her own. With no job and little money, she and the boys moved to her mother’s apartment.
The apartment is small, just three rooms; in addition to Reeva and the boys, her mother and two younger brothers live there as well. The home is terribly crowded, and there is little privacy. Reeva and her children share a room, with all three boys sleeping in infant beds.
Reeva would like each of the boys to have his own space. Because of the crowding, the only way to do this would be to add a bed that would open to three beds at night, as there is nowhere to put three separate beds. With no income, however, Reeva cannot afford to buy even a single bed for her sons, let alone a triple-folding bed.
