Bunk bed for Nina and Itzik’s children
Nina, 30, and Itzik, 32, are an example of a couple that is doing their very best to escape the cycle of poverty they’re living in.
Nina and Itzik have two sons, ages 7 and 9. They are incredibly devoted parents who are focused on meeting all of their children’s physical and emotional needs.
Nina and Itzik have both worked steadily over the years. When Nina was pregnant with their second child, their oldest, Roi, was diagnosed with severe ENT and respiratory issues. He ‘required a number of surgeries and ongoing aftercare which put a strain on the family’s already tight finances. Nina also had to stop working temporarily in order to care for him. The couple ended up having to take out loans which they are diligently repaying.
Corona hasn’t made their lives any easier. Itzik, a factory worker, had his hours cut. Nina was put on unpaid leave. Between Itzik’s reduced income and Nina’s unemployment stipend, they are having trouble making ends meet. Despite their hardships, they are determined to get through this difficult period and get back on their feet.
In the meantime, the boys are sleeping on an old bunk bed that is unstable and dangerous. It also has no ladder so that Nina, who is pregnant, has to lift her son up and down from the top bed. A new bunk bed would certainly go a long way towards improving this family’s quality of life.
