A week ago, our mother wasn't feeling well. She was taken away to the hospital, and we never saw her again. She died on shabbos of COVID-19.
Our mom, Mrs. Mazal Dalal a"h, was the youngest person to die from the coronavirus in Israel. She was only 53 years old.
She left behind nine children. The youngest is only 12.
After our mother's diagnosis, we needed to be in strict qurantine. That meant that when she passed away, we were told by the Health Ministry that we would not be able to attend her funeral. I'm not sure what we expected but we were shocked, and all wept together. This tragedy is more than we can bear.
We are very unclear as to how we will move forward. We have very little money to live off of and we are asking you to please help us take care of the younger kids, who have just had their entire worlds turned upside down. Hashem should bless you with health, and parnassa.
