At a מלמד w/ 11 children, tomatoes are only allowed Shabbos! It became a food for millionaires

$608 of $3,000 raised

raised by 23 people in 1 month

 

I was at a Brooklyn appartment and my heart went out when a child took from the grocery box a tomato and mother said she needs to put back because tomatoes are only for shabbos. The child obediently put back. She explains me that she only has money for once a week  fruits and vegetables. I saw it with my own eyes! This was my last straw.

I CANNOT SEE THIS ANYMORE! 

Water was lowered at the central control by the boiler to a temperature that I would not even use for an enemy's shower.

A/C was set for 77 farenheit!  I was exploding from heat. During winter I saw her putting the heat for extremely low that kids were walking with 2 sweaters and still sneazing a lot. One child took much longer to heal from the flu because of the extreme cold there. And her bills are still a strugle.


About the parents: this caring father holds a melamed job but is way underpaid. As you know, some chadorim pay very little for melamdim. (It depends on the neighborhood ). Mother holds 2 dificult home jobs but to her luck there is less of a demand lately for one of those services. Mother has diabetis but stress is increasing her sugar levels. The little income this family has still needs to cover a tutor for one of the 11 children that is so bad in studies so her school refused to keep her unless these parents pay for a private tutor. 

Nice neighbors lend money on short term but she has to return and she does, albeit with a delay but nothing is left to afford fruits and vegetables during weekdays.

GIVE THEM SOME WATERMELON ! TOMATOES! WARMER WATER FOR A SHOWER! A/C should set to take away the scorching humid New York heat! We need home to be a regular warmth in the winter. As in other campaigns, I will control the money so It is used for nutritious food and utility bills and mother can keep the house on a decent temperature.

Please make a big heart donation!
