...and we cannot afford it.
We are a young couple who met here in Israel about a year ago, coming from two different parts of the world... I do not come from particularly well off country (Slovakia) and all I managed to save since I started to work two years ago was some 2000 dollars, recently I study at language school in order to be able to get better job after and do job in supermarket at the same time, getting up at 5 six days a week (with master's degree) and my boyfriend has job that pays barely above minimum wage,
Israel is the only country for us to be able to start living together immediately without waiting 6 months for his visa to Europe and costs of living here are very high. We need about 40 000 dollars of down payment for just the cheapest house in the cheapest city, currently we have around 10 000. While living on rent it is hard to save anything because even the tiniest basement apartment costs around 1000 dollars to rent a month not including electricity bill. Our parents are unable to help, they themselves do not have money.
Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to have my own family, as I spent all my childhood in non-functional family and had to take care of father when my mother left us at the age of 15, I never had a place to call home. Now as an adult (almost 30) I struggle to keep my not yet created family together, while watching all my friends having their own kids,
We will gladly accept even 1$ given from the heart.
Thank you for interest in our cause.
