UPDATED: This past year, I have had the Zchus to be learning in Yeshiva in Yerushalayim. The Dirah that I lived in was in an apartment building full of lively families. Throughout the year I became friendly with the families here, and they were always there to make us feel at home.
One of the kids in my building is 12 year old Avidan, who is now considered to me like a little brother. One day, Avidan came with his father to my Dirah and the father told me he is going to America for the first time in need of 30 thousand dollars for his son’s surgery. I didn’t know what he was talking about, until the father showed me. He takes off Avidan’s sock and I see his foot is misshapen, and completely deformed.
Little did I know, the family’s difficulties are plentiful – and this was just one of many issues, R”L.
He is coming to America to collect, but unfortunately he is one of hundreds of Israeli’s that go to America each year to collect for their family debt or problem. This family however, I know personally, and has absolutely no food to put on the table – and now to pay for this$30,000 surgery, which insurance doesn’t cover, is beyond what they could handle.
I want to help this man, his family, and Avidan because when he gets to America he will be going door to door for a month, and probably not get even close to what he needs. He is in enough pain.
Iy”h Avidan’s father will be coming to America in the coming days for some time to collect the funds needed for the surgery. I am asking of you to please help me make it easier for him so he doesn’t have to stay here for too long, by donating whatever amount of money you’r capable of, so the surgery can be done as soon as possible.
