Computer for Kfir
Kfir, 17, is an impressive young man. His mother, Tami, was unmarried when she gave birth to him. Unfortunately, his father took no responsibility for him, and the two had little contact. His father had other children from two marriages and suffered from emotional and physical disabilities. When Kfir was 7 years old, his father died of a stroke. Kfir attempted to make contact with his father’s family, but they refused.
Tami eventually married a Muslim man and adopted his lifestyle, despite living apart from him. As a result, her family cut off all contact with Tami and Kfir as well.
Tami has always tried her hardest to support herself and her son. She worked as a cleaner and a manicurist in order to make ends meet. Unfortunately, with the arrival of Corona, she found herself with no income. The family of two currently survives on a small government stipend and food vouchers provided by social services.
Throughout all of this turmoil, Kfir has managed to succeed in his studies, earning high grades on his English and Math matriculation exams. Now that he has started 12th grade, he is beginning to think about his army service, which he hopes to make as meaningful as possible. In order to complete his studies, Kfir desperately needs a computer. Clearly, Tami cannot afford to buy him one. Kfir is a sensitive, introverted and motivated young man. He deserves every chance to succeed in life.
