Computer for Shalom
Shalom’s parents are diligent, responsible and loving, but caring for him is a never-ending burden for them. Shalom, 27, is autistic. He also has ADD and a number of other issues. He has trouble holding a job, is irresponsible with money and careless of hygiene, and would wander the streets all day long if he could.
One of the few activities that keeps him focused and calm is using a computer. The situation is similar for his twin brother. Their parents, however, earn little and are dealing with the boys’ high medical bills and the needs of their other seven children. As a result, they cannot afford a computer, despite the difference that it could make to everyone’s life.
