Washing machine for Mia
Mia, 68, is divorced and lives on her own.
Mia’s four adult children are all married with families of their own; they can only offer her minimal help.
Today, Mia survives on a monthly government stipend; in addition to covering her cost-of-living, this sum has to cover the legal fees from her divorce, as well as her medical expenses.
Mia’s apartment is small and dilapidated; her furniture and appliances are all old and broken. Her most desperate need right now is a new washing machine, as her old one no longer works.
