Hard Work Pays Off
A very hard-working couple, she as a teacher and he as a scribe, the "Levys" were coming up short every month due to the high costs of two of their children's medical needs. One child suffers with cerebral palsy and another with diverticulosis. Lema'an Achai's benefits and entitlements specialists helped them receive recognition and payments from Bituach Leumi. Their social worker referred them to a trusted therapist and connected them with a support group for parents of ill children. The director of volunteers also found some volunteers to help out with the kids. While dealing with chronically ill children is always a challenge, today the "Levys" are functioning as a more united family and the atmosphere is much improved.
