My Elderly Parents Are Homeless. They Just Want to Go Home!

Hello,

My name is Chaim Hirschman. My wonderful and selfless parents raised 11 children to adulthood. They made it clear that they would do anything in the world for us.

That became especially clear once my brother Yaakov became very ill, and needed brain surgery. His expensive treatments cost them so much, they had to sell their house. My siblings and I felt so helpless, as we watched them lose everything. 

Now they are elderly, weak, and homeless.

My father is now very ill also, and the financial responsibility for the home has fallen on our sweet and fragile mother. Our families have done what we can to help them. They have had the humiliating and painful experience of living in my sister's house, with no place to call their own.

We are praying and begging that together with your help, my parents can get their apartment back, and go home. They are too old and weak for all of this, they need to be back in the home they've had for so long. Please, I am begging you, open your heart to two poor, elderly, and frightened people, who have given everything they had to their children, and now have nothing. They just want to go home!!

 

Thank you

 

Chaim
