Orthopedic Shoes for Olga
Olga, 79, is a Holocaust survivor. She moved to Israel with her husband and daughter almost 20 years ago. Here she worked for the Israeli postal service for almost a decade.
Olga’s husband died 12 years ago and her daughter does not live nearby – although they speak on the phone, they see each other rarely, and her daughter cannot help her financially. Other than her daughter, Olga has no relatives in Israel. She lives on her own.
Olga suffers from terrible pain in her feet and bad veins in her legs. She has seen many doctors for this, and the best suggestion is that she wear orthopedic shoes with prescription in-soles. These might well alleviate her pain, but Olga cannot afford them.
