Dear brothers, I live in the city of Beitar in Eretz Yisrael, And I have B”H nine happy children. My family is well known, and therefore I was advised by my Rabbonim not to publicize my name.
When my wife and I got married, the plan was that I would sit and learn, and my wife would take care of the finances.
All was good, until our 9th child was born. My wife experienced complications and difficulties during the pregnancy and labor, which put her out of commission. The health issues, along with depression and anxiety, effected her ability to take care of the kids and function properly.
I was forced to go out to work in order to feed my family. I juggled different jobs while still trying to be home and care for my wife and children.
Finally I was settled at this one job, when I was informed that I am being fired due to Covid related company issues.
I was destroyed! I lost the little that I had! And I went into a deep depression, where I could not get out of bed for 2 weeks! The situation was catastrophic!
We needed to save our life! Our marriage! Our family! So we we’re advised to go see a psychiatrist, but after realizing the costs it involves, I couldn’t face it or even think about it.
Our life situation suddenly turned for the worse! My wife and I are not the great parents we used to be! I cannot sit and learn anymore! Neither of us can work sufficiently anymore! I struggle daily to put bread and milk on the table! My children are begging for basic food and clothing! I do not know what to tell them!
I am turning to you with my heart crying out! PLEASE! Help me get out of this terrible situation I am in now! Psychiatric treatments can go a long way, and save our family! If we wait on it, it might be too late! Please help me raise the $ needed for these treatments.
I am collapsing and need you to open your heart so we can survive!
