Judy Lives in Jerusalem and is married. She emigrated to Israel from Ethiopia a few years ago in the hope of building a new life for her family.
Her husband works as a cleaner, but she has been unable to find a job because of her lack of Hebrew. Their income is 6000 NIS per month, and the rent is 4000 NIS. They have a daughter named Gelila who is one years old, and Judy is constantly worried about their financial situation..
When she found out that she was pregnant again she was seriously considering having an abortion. Her husband, however, was very much against this. He loves Judy very much and told her that if necessary, he would find another job and work during the night. She was upset and sad because she barely spent time with him and told me that she misses him although they live together!
Thankfully Judy then heard about Be' ad Chaim and as soon as she made contact with us, one of our wonderful counselors was able to give her the love and support she needed. She has particularly valued the support her counselor was able to offer and shared that it was thanks to the counselor that she decided to keep her baby.
It was then thanks to your generous sponsorship that Judy was able to become part of The Operation Moses Project. This supplied her with a crib and sheets, baby bath, stroller, and the promise of monthly vouchers for a whole year to buy the other essentials she would need for the new baby. She really is so very grateful for all this help.
On the 22nd of May Judy gave birth to a baby boy and they named him Hanuel. He weighed 3.500 Kg when he was born, and now weighs 4.500 Kg. He is a healthy baby, and both he and Judy are doing well. She said that Gelila loves her little brother and plays with him during the day. She wants to help her mother in any way she can.
Judy shared her deep appreciation for all the help and support she received during this very challenging season, it really made such a huge difference, and she is truly grateful.
Thank you for your kind and generous support and for your continued prayers for her and her family.
