When Words and Tomatoes Join Together to Create One Big Hug

inboxShe could have been living down the block from us but no one knew. She was a victim of terror with psychological wounds that never healed. Physically she was not in good shape either. She had been diagnosed in February with a severe lung infection and was extremely weak. Alone in Israel and helpless, she turned to the only address she knew. And that was how an Ezer Mizion director found a heartrending email in her inbox.

The doctor told me no crowds, no stores. . . no social. . . 

 All alone. It is a very tough time and I have no way to make an income. . .  

Please advise.

Please send your address and phone number. We’d like to help.

 

Thank you so much for getting back to me. . . Your words sound like a hug. . . 

I’m so tired of being alone . . I live in Tel Aviv, in the North, we now have a covid outbreak here. . . 

I was at the doctor today and i have another infection.   She let me know, I’m am VERY HIGH RISK!!! I cannot really go anywhere, safely these days LLL

 My address is xxx. My phone number is 0000000.

Thank you for just acknowledging me. . . This situation is becoming very serious. I’m so very scared. I have lost more than 16 lbs in a few weeks. . . .  Toda raba

The case was investigated by Ezer Mizion’s Tel Aviv branch.

Our Tel Aviv branch will contact you directly to see how they can help.  Hold tight. You’re not alone.

It didn’t take the Tel Aviv Ezer Mizion branch long to get into action.

WOW WOW WOW. . . thank you so much.

I cannot believe how i have had to beg for veggies and produce for MONTHS!!!

And WOW, am I grateful. This was awesome!!!! THANK YOU!!!

I had a dream last night that I wanted to make shashkuka but I didn’t have any vegetables. In my dream, I got a phone call asking for my address. The voice said he has veggies and other things for me.  When I woke up my dream actually came true. There was a knock at the door. IT WAS AMAZING. . . peppers and tomatoes overflowing.  .

. . and wow. . i should have taken a photo. . .

But, with my messy hallway i just wanted to sterilize and get the things in quickly. . . and I did. . .

and I stopped my whole day. . . and just made shakshuka. .

 

And to think that all this will be coming regularly. AMAZING. AMAZING DAY!!!. Awesome. Thank you! This is the first time i saw something like this since I’ve been in isolation from February. . . SO THANK YOU! J That was a huge smile.
