Hello wonderful community,

Life has a way of presenting unforeseen challenges, and I find myself on an arduous path, navigating a delicate pregnancy that has upended my daily life. My pregnancy has come with a series of complications such as gestational diabetes, early signs of preeclampsia, multiple hemorrhages, and limited mobility due to loss of sensation in my feet. Adding to this strain, recent medical examinations have detected a heart defect (VSD) in the baby, which requires further tests not covered by my healthcare provider.

As a solo mother, I had responsibly set aside some savings for emergencies. However, the enormity of my current situation has rapidly depleted those funds. Efforts to adjust my work scenario to accommodate my health have been unsuccessful, leading to a loss of my sole income source. Further, the nature of my job posed a threat to my well-being and was incompatible with the frequency of my medical treatments. An occupational doctor subsequently advised against continuing my employment. Amid these challenges, I've been grappling with depression, and the lack of accessible mental health support has compounded my struggle.

The Israeli national insurance was my ray of hope to provide some monetary relief during this period. Yet, after a prolonged wait, I've been informed that my application requires stronger medical justifications to qualify for aid. This situation has left me without an income, and with the arrival of the Jewish High holidays, the pressure is palpable.

Despite significantly reducing my living expenses and seeking supplementary income through small jobs, the uncertainty and financial strain are overwhelming. I'm doing my best to remain afloat, but there are 15 weeks - roughly 3.5 months - before my baby arrives, a time I need to secure to prevent beginning motherhood buried in debt.

While my incredible family has shown immense support, there remain crucial expenses they can't cover. Every donation, big or small, can ease this challenging journey I'm on. Your generosity will not only assist in meeting immediate needs but will also provide peace of mind during a period that should be filled with joyful anticipation.


Thank you for taking the time to understand my situation and for any support you can provide. The beauty of a community is found in how we come together during challenging times, and I'm sincerely grateful for any assistance you can offer.

Warm wishes,

Maayan

Wow, I have no words, only tears in my eyes. Thank you for your generous donations that helped me keep my head above the water. In Hebrew, we have a saying, "May you always be on the giving side", which means we wish you to always be on the side that can give rather than the side that needs help. I wish the same to all of you. Thank you again for your help. You have made a significant difference in my life.
