"My child was born premature, during week 26, with water in his head. He had an operation on his head and is currently still in the hospital. Sometimes, even my husband cannot work because he helps me take care of our child who needs to be checked on and given medication all the time. Our boy is neither walking nor crawling; just sitting. The doctors do not know if he will be able to walk. Since he had head surgery, and his hands do not move, he goes to a special kindergarten for children who have problems. I arrived at Kuchinate a year and five months ago. If I do not have to take my child to the doctor, I come to work at Kuchinate. In Israel, it is very difficult; I have no work and I have to pay for food and rent. My dream is that my child will feel good. If God gives health to my child, that is enough for me. I love Kuchinate because at home I worry all the time and think about what will happen to us, what will happen to our child, and how we are going to have enough food and money. Here at Kuchinate, I see other mothers with children; I look at them and see that they all have problems too. Everyone who comes to Kuchinate suffers, so here I am not alone."
