Mattress for Rotem
Rotem, 42, is divorced and raising three teenagers, ages 13 -18. Two of the kids are in high school, and one is about to enlist in the IDF.
Rotem works full-time as a counselor to special needs children. She is a strong, capable woman who has never allowed herself to accept outside help. Unfortunately, Rotem now has no choice as her financial situation has continued to plummet.
Rotem works her hardest to meet all of her children’s needs, even at the expense of her own. She supports her family on her income and her ex-husband’s child support payments. In addition to covering their monthly needs, Rotem is slowly paying off a huge bank loan. It isn’t easy, but she is determined to build a stable future for herself and her children.
The family of four live in a very small apartment. Rotem and her 13-year-old daughter, Yonit, share a double bed. The mattress they’re sleeping on is old and torn. There is no question that a new mattress, which Rotem cannot afford to buy, would guarantee them a decent night’s sleep and significantly improve their quality of life.
