Washing Machine for Arianna
Arianna was born with a badly curved spine and has struggled with this disability all her life. Determined to work despite the weakness that this causes, Arianna trained as an early childhood specialist. Now 50, she has held jobs variously as a childcare helper and as an aide to the elderly, for as many hours per week as she could manage.
Arianna’s earnings are low, and even with the supplement of her state disability stipend, it is not easy for her to cover her expenses every month. Her washing machine has broken, but Arianna does not have the money to cover the expense of replacing it.
