Therapy for Avital

Total Cost - USD 1,510
Still Needed - USD 0
Funded - USD 1,510

Avital, 19, is in desperate need of emotional therapy. Avital’s father is currently being treated for cancer. The chemotherapy treatments have left him so weak that he is bed-ridden. Since he was the only wage earner in the household, the family is now in dire financial straits.
Avital has six siblings, five of whom got married in the last few years. All of the couples are struggling financially and are in no condition to provide any financial help.
There is a very heavy feeling in the house and that is taking its toll on everyone.
Avital is very introverted. She has trouble communicating even with her peers and answers questions with a simple “ÿes” or “no”. Avital is very stilted emotionally and doesn’t express her feelings at all. It is clear that she is in desperate need of therapy, but there is no way her parents can afford it.
The social workers who have met with Avital report that in her current emotional state, Avital will have trouble maintaining a relationship or entering the job market.
At 19 years old, Avital deserves a chance to build a stable and independent future. She needs our help to make that happen.
