Single Mother: Yamit’s Story

Born in Israel, Yamit’s life was challenging from the start. She admits, “I come from a family with no money, my mother was a single mom, and I had no contact with my father. I grew up going to a school for kids with special needs and troubled families.” 

Wanting a better future, she moved to the U.S. as a teen and met her husband there. But he soon became addicted to drugs and alcohol, and they struggled financially. Desperate and unable to help him, she moved back to Israel with her 2-year-old son and 3-month-old daughter. 

With limited support in Israel and no family to help her, she worked as a caregiver to the elderly, barely making ends meet. Though her husband couldn’t help financially, the couple was in constant contact, with the hope of being a family again. And then, Yamit received tragic news that he had died of an overdose. Devastated, she felt lost and alone, with nowhere to turn. 

But friends like you were there through CBN Israel. Donors provided vouchers to buy food and clothing for her children. They also bought her a computer, to help her kids with school—as well as offering family and financial counseling. Yamit says, “The most important thing to me is my faith. My life is so much better today because of your support and kindness. Thank you!” 

Your gifts to CBN Israel can bring hope to so many who feel alone—offering food, housing, financial aid—and hope. 

The needs are escalating across Israel. Your support is crucial in reaching out to immigrants, Holocaust survivors, terror victims, and others in crisis. Plus, you can help bring breaking news and true stories from the Holy Land. 

Please consider a gift to bless others today!
