“I wasn’t an easy kid. I struggled my way through everything. When I was a teenager, I got involved with the wrong people and I started using drugs. My life fell apart - I was kicked out school.

Until the day I almost died of an overdose. That was a wake up call for me. I realized life is too short … I davened to Hashem, and slowly I came back, stronger than ever. I grew in my ruchnius and got a job. Before long I was in shidduchim. Baruch Hashem, I became a kallah. I was on top of the world, and so were my parents.

I’ll never forget how happy they were at my vort: There was a time when they thought I wouldn’t live to see 20. Now I was happy, frum, and starting my own Jewish family.

With tears in his eyes, my father hugged me and said “I’m so proud of you.” Those were the last words he ever said to me.

On the way home, my parents were killed instantly in a car crash. 

In the months that have passed I’ve become like a mom to my siblings. We’re alone now. My minimum wage paycheck stretches to pay for all of us.

I cry at night, after the kids are asleep, afraid I’ll have to call off my engagement. If Kupat Ha’Ir’s Shevat campaign can raise enough, I can have a wedding, and a place to live.”***

This is one story, but each person’s loss is unique. This month, 38 people have been hand-selected by Kupat Ha’Ir’s staff as exceptionally needy. These 38 people have lost their parents, and are struggling to start their lives on their own without a mother & father’s loving help.

They will walk to the chuppah without their parents on their arm. They will start their new life without their parents there to guide them. But if you participate in this special program, you will be able to step in to fill that void. Together, we can be the parents that they need during this vulnerable time.

As usual, the gedolim have put their trust and confidence in this special program. Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlit"a, talmid chacham, tzaddik and one of the true spiritual leaders of klal yisroel, has taken responsibility for these 38 special people.

Contributions to the campaign come with a powerful bracha: Those who give to help these desperate people who are relying on us for help, should bez”H receive, midah k’neged midah, parnassah and y'ladim tzaddikim. To all those praying for the futures of their own children, this is a beautiful cause and a great investment.

 

This campaign will only be live for a short time -- do not miss this opportunity to join Rav Kanievsky shlit”a in marrying off people who desperately need our help. Give to this special and important cause and receive the Rav’s blessing and prayers for yours and your childrens’ futures.

 

*Details have been changed to preserve the orphans’ privacy. However, the heart of “Chani”’s loss is something each of Kupat Ha’Ir’s orphans can relate to.

Donations can also be made to Kupat Ha'Ir Foundation # 4700
