A young mother discovers that the hospital has become a second home, gives birth to a younger sister who will save her older brother, and in the midst of all this — she, a settler from Kefar Tapu’ach, turns into the best friend of a mother from Gaza.
Being the mother of a sick child is not simple. Continue reading Another Planet
It was a stormy night. The wind howled, rain poured down. Inside it was quite stormy also. With nine kids, it often was. She was tired. The clock, her friend, smiled at her and reassured her that in one hour, the kids would be in bed and she could snuggle under her feathery quilt with a cup of tea and the book that had been waiting for her attention for days. Utter bliss after such a hectic day. The cleanup could wait till tomorrow. It wasn’t so bad. The laundry was all caught up. The kids had done the supper dishes. Miriam had even scrubbed the pot.

And then the phone rang. Continue reading Lottie’s Kitchen Event Coming Up
We wanted to thank you for… everything!
Two years ago, my baby was born a month and a half early. I gave birth in a hospital up north. The baby was in the hospital for some time. The first day, he just needed oxygen, but then his condition declined and he was on a respirator for several days.
The staff at the hospital did not understand why the baby’s condition was not improving and they sent him for all kinds of tests. Thanks to the Ezer Mizion contact person, they agreed to hear a second opinion from someone outside the hospital. (Thank G-d, it wasn’t necessary in the end, because the situation started improving.)
While the baby was hospitalized, I desperately needed a nursing pump, and you graciously lent me one. With time, we saw that the baby was developing slowly, and we borrowed equipment from you to help advance his motor skills. This too was given to us very happily.
From time to time, we have to bring the baby to a hospital in Central Israel for a check-up, and there we are treated to a hot, nourishing lunch – thanks to you!
Thank you for everything, and again, thank you! Words cannot express our appreciation!
