When Snejana, her husband, and their three children emigrated from Ukraine to Israel in 2018, she had high hopes, despite the obstacles of starting over in a new culture. They found an apartment that looked fresh and clean, and seemed perfect for their family.
But when winter came, their dream apartment became a nightmare. Their entire home was filled with mold—in the kitchen, living room, master bedroom, and kids’ room. When they called the landlord, pleading with him to fix it, he hung up and said it wasn’t his problem.
By this time, Snejana was a stay-at-home mom, caring for her children, and pregnant with a fourth child. Her husband was the breadwinner, but his modest salary just covered their basic needs. Unable to hire a professional contractor, the couple washed the walls with bleach the whole winter. Still, a huge piece of their wall fell off, and the floors were always wet.
One day, a local group that CBN Israel partners with saw what a health hazard Snejana was living in and contacted us to help her family. We provided workers who repaired the roof, pipes, and the walls, and removed all the mold. Thanks to friends like you, their children have dry floors and walls—and clean air to breathe. We also brought her family groceries and other needed essentials. Snejana says, “Our family is beyond grateful… We are speechless when we think of people halfway around the world caring for us!”
And CBN Israel is offering help to many more who are struggling in Israel, including Holocaust survivors, terror victims, lone soldiers, and more. Your support is crucial in helping the Holy Land. You can bless those in need with groceries, shelter, financial aid, and medical supplies.
