Summer Camp for Anat
Shalom and Devorah are struggling to build a decent life for themselves and their children, under difficult circumstances. Shalom has had trouble finding employment after being released from prison. The best he can manage so far is a part-time job for four hours a day. Beyond the minimal income that this pays, the couple has very little money.
Devorah devotes most of her time to taking care of their four children, ages 15, 13, 10, and six, particularly the youngest, who is on the autism spectrum and has PDD. His care demands energy and a disproportionate share of the family’s resources. This summer, they would like Anat, their 10-year old daughter, to attend a summer camp, so that rather than spending the long, hot hours in their small apartment, she could be with friends and enjoy an organized program. However, it is beyond their ability to provide this for her.
