Computer for Yehudit
Yehudit is a second year university student, studying education. Yehudit is determined to finish her college degree despite the economic challenges that she faces at every turn. Before starting college, she worked to save money for her tuition. With the onset of Corona, Yehudit lost her job and is now seeking a new position.
Because she cannot afford to rent her own apartment, Yehudit, 23, lives with her parents. In addition to her and her parents, both of her brothers live there, as does her divorced sister and her sister’s young daughter. The apartment has only three and a half small rooms.
Yehudit’s father has not worked in over four years and receives a disability stipend. Her mother suffers from Krone’s disease, fibromyalgia and osteoporosis, but nonetheless holds down a regular job as a secretary; her salary, however, is very low.
During the past year, when learning was remote, Yehudit was able to attend her classes online and complete her assignments by using a computer that her mother borrowed from a friend. But the friend now needs it back. Neither Yehudit nor her parents can afford to buy the computer that she so desperately needs to move forward with her dreams.
