Lurie Fanya Leonidovna 1932 g. p.
Root Khmelnichanka (or rather, Проскуровчанка). Pre-war childhood was common, carefree. IN 1941 year Fani's father went to the front, was injured. The family comes to his hospital in Kislovodsk. Then there were Grozny, Tashkent, where Fanya and her mother lived in evacuation until 1945 of the year. IN 1945 year Lurie returned to their native Proskurov, settle with neighbors, having with you a miserable belongings - a few blankets and a change of clothes.
Post-war life was gradually getting into a rut, the family received a 1-room apartment. Fanya got a job at the regional printing house, where I worked in one place as a printer 43 of the year. As the saying goes, from A to Z.
We don't need to know, why does fate offend good people. Fanin's husband died early, daughter Lyuba gave birth to a sick son with mental disabilities. It became hard and morally, and materially.
But Fanya Leonidovna did not succumb to despair. On the contrary, I gave all my strength, to help even more disadvantaged. First works for Magen Avot, then a social worker in the newly created charitable foundation "Khesed Besht". Until now, Hesed's wards and their relatives warmly remember their patronage sister., friend Fanu Lurie.
Fanya has long been retired, but her energy is enviable. He actively attends the Day Center and is its permanent volunteer. With a modest pension of 950 UAH. for his own money makes and donates to Hesed wonderful fakes of fabric on a Jewish theme - Shabbat napkins, Hanukkah applications, Passover. Khesed became a second home for Fani Leonidovna, place of communication, spiritual joy. AND, sure, mutual aid.
Fanya is very hard of hearing. At the expense of Hesed, she acquired a good digital hearing aid worth about 4000 UAH. According to the program "Hard of Hearing", consultations are regularly held with a doctor - audiologist (is free). Every month she receives groceries under the food-shop program, provided with medicines as needed.
From everything you can see, that Hesed is good at supporting low-income clients. And clients understand and appreciate it. A striking example of this - daughter Lyuba followed in the footsteps of her mother., who works in Hesed as a social worker, continuing the traditions of Fani Lurie, traditions of dedicated service to the Jewish people.
