Oven for Sophie
Sophie, 47, is raising four children (ages 8-21) on her own. Sophie’s oldest daughter is physically and mentally challenged, and needs a great deal of attention. Because she is a single mother, Sophie, who is a caregiver in an old age home, can only work part time as she needs to be available for her children. This obviously impacts her earnings.
Sophie supports herself and her family on her monthly salary and a government stipend. She is deeply in debt and recently began bankruptcy proceedings, as she cannot keep up with her various expenses.
Right now, Sophie’s most pressing need is a new oven. Hers broke a few months ago, and she has been forced to cook at her neighbors’ homes. This is certainly no way for any mother to live; Sophie desperately needs our help.
