For the second decade, the Khmelnytsky Charitable Foundation “Hesed Besht” helps older clients to overcome various difficulties with dignity. But over time it became obvious, that not only old people need support.
Big and often unsolvable problems plague the middle generation of 30-40 year olds: low income, illness, job loss, and the family needs to be fed…
Lives in Khmelnitsky Dorofeeva Alena Alexandrovna 1971 g. g., a Jew.
Born in Dushanbe, she graduated from school and trade college in Khmelnytsky. Got married, is raising a wonderful 7 year old son- schoolboy.
Several years ago, Dorofeeva A. decided to open my own business. Took a large amount of money from the bank on the security of an apartment, created my own company.
Seemingly, the well-being of the family is ensured, but…
Competitors have tried, the company burned out and everything rolled into the abyss, like an avalanche. Unable to withstand the failure of his daughter, father dies of a heart attack, mom had a stroke. Husband, afraid of responsibility, hastily left the family. Dorofeeva herself, on a nervous basis, fell ill with a severe form of hormone-dependent asthma, which diabetes joined. An ambulance arrives at the house every day. Female, naturally, does not work, disabled group II, pension 1000 UAH. Lives with mom – retired (pension 800 UAH) and my little son in my mother's 3-room apartment, which is under bank arrest, giving 1feditis.
A family spends on utilities on average 400 UAH. per month (before raising tariffs), it takes about 900 UAH, 300 UAH. for medicines (not counting the inhaler for 580 UAH, which Alena is enough for a month). Plus paid textbooks to school. Even a cursory calculation shows, what's on clothes, shoes and other needs in the family there is simply no money.
The situation is aggravated by the, that a hormone-dependent woman hardly leaves the apartment (5-1st floor without lift), t. to. gained weight more 150 Kg. Sleeping on the floor – her bed shattered, unable to bear the weight of the hostess.
Hesed, sure, did not leave a young woman in trouble.
By program “Medicine” a vital inhaler is regularly purchased. IN 2010 year paid for a massage course for 750 UAH.
Thanks to “other sponsors” – Dutch Foundation “Ruhama” – in 2010 a solid bed with an orthopedic mattress worth 3300 UAH, bed dress, blanket worth 700 UAH.
Five years ago (while health allowed) L. Dorofeeva rested in a summer camp at the sanatorium g. Satan. Her son Alexander enjoys attending the Hesed children's programs. by the way, at the moment we are considering options for solving a serious dental problem for 7-year-old Alexander.
We cannot live for someone else's life, but “Hesed Besht” making every effort, opportunities, puts soul, so that- support your charges, in crisis.
Give Gd, beyond the black strip of life will come a light. Thanks to caring people. Thanks to Hesed.
