Leah is divorced and has 2 children, Yarin (11) and Maayan (9). As a young girl Leah spent most of the time in boarding schools and didn’t live at home.
Leah started a relationship with a bedouin man, who suffers addiction to alcohol and was very violent. Leah was very connected to him and despite her whole family being against this relationship she stayed with him. They planned to have a baby together and then very soon after this Leah got pregnant. Several months into the pregnancy, however, Leah’s partner was involved in a serious car accident and as a result of his injuries is now paralyzed. This was a great shock for them both, and now Leah knew the father of her child would need 100% assistance all the time. He has now been moved to a care facility where he is being looked after, and actually today Leah thinks maybe it was the hand of God protecting her and her children from this violent man.
Leah heard about Be’ad Chaim from several women in her family, as they had all received help from us in the past. She didn't think we would help her as she was already in her 7th month and had been rejected by another organization because she came too late. She was so surprised that we lovingly welcomed her and were happy to give her help. It was through your very generous sponsorship Leah was able to become part of The Operation Moses Project. This provided her with all the furniture needed for her baby and also monthly vouchers for a whole year to buy the other essentials that her baby would need.
The pregnancy was a little worrying, Leah was bleeding and she was distressed by this. But praise God on the 17th April 2019 Leah gave birth to a precious baby boy, she named him Omer. The birth was very easy and the next day Leah asked to go home and she was able to do so. Her and precious Omer are both doing so well, she is absolutely in love with her baby, she is nursing him and he is growing well.
Both of Leah’s older children adore their new baby brother, Leah told me that first thing every morning they run to say good morning to Omer, and don’t even seem to notice Leah is there too. In fact little Omer is loved by the whole family. Leah was afraid he would be rejected because of the origin of his father but actually the opposite has happened and they have all embraced him with love.
Leah is trying to stay in contact with Omer’s father through video calls but she decided not to register her son in his name as this would cause many complications in the future, her being Jewish and the father Bedouin.
In the next few days Leah and her family will be moving into an apartment subsidized by the government, it is a great blessing for them but there is a lot of work involved. Please keep them in your prayers.
Leah shared her very deep gratitude for all the help and support her and her family have received, she really is so very grateful, and it made such a huge difference to her situation.
Thank you very much for your kind and generous support and for your continued prayers for Leah and her lovely family.
