תיאור המבצע בעברית מופיע למטה אחרי האנגלית

A month ago, flash floods claimed the lives of 10 young teenagers in the south of Israel. Sari was right next to her best friend, Ela Or Z"L, who tragically died when the powerful muddy waters hit and swept them both away. Sari too thought this was the end and prayed that her death would come quickly. Miraculously, by the grace of G-d, Sari survived, albeit with multiple injuries.

Sari was hospitalized in Intensive Care for 2 weeks, undergoing multiple operations. Sari faces extensive ongoing medical care, therapy and rehabilitation.

Sari's mother is divorced and works two jobs. She has not managed to work since the tragedy as Sari's medical situation, although B"H much improved, is still precarious.  Sari has a shunt draining fluid from within her skull, an irregular heartbeat caused by direct trauma to the heart, multiple body injuries and substantial cosmetic damage to her face, legs and head.

Their desperate financial situation means that they are living from hand to mouth, in short-term rentals. There is no income support from the father, the legal battle for reparations will be long and costly, and the family has no savings to fall back on.

Sari is a strong young woman, an outstanding student, and is determined to succeed. But she needs your help.

If we reach our goal, Sari's mother will be able to afford medical expenses not covered by their health fund, medical opinion from various doctors needed for insurance purposes, and preliminary expenses to start the lengthy legal campaign for compensation. Sari is in need of trauma therapy as not only does she have to deal with what she went through but also with the tragedy that her best friend did not survive.

Please pray for a Refua Shleima for Sarah Bat Bracha.

Thank you so much for your help.

לפני כחודש, השטפון בנחל צפית גבה את חייהם של עשרה בני נוער. שרי קורץ היתה ליד חברה הטובה אלה אור ז"ל, שנספתה כאשר המים סחפו את שתיהן. שרי היתה בטוחה שהסוף שלה קרב והתפללה רק שזה יקרה מהר. בדרך נסית היא ניצלה, אמנם עם פגיעות לא מעטות.

שרי אושפזה למשך שבועיים, כולל בטיפול נמרץ, ועברה כמה ניתוחים. היא עדיין זקוקה להמשך טיפול רפואי שוטף, טרפיה ,ושיקום.

אמא של שרי חד-הורית ועובדת בשתי עבודות. מאז האסון היא לא יכולה לעבוד כי מצבה של שרי, שאמנם השתפר פלאים, עדיין מצריך השגחה צמודה. לשרי יש נקז בראש, דופק לא סדיר עקב פגיעת הדף בלב, פגיעות נוספות בגוף ופגיעות קוסמטיות בפנים, ידיים ובראש.

המצב הכלכלי דוחק, פיצויים מהגורמים הרשמיים צפויים לקחת כמה שנים, תוך עלויות מרובות של עורך דין, חוות דעת רפואיות ומשפטיות, ואין למשפחה חסכונות להיעזר בהם.

שרי היא בחורה חזקה, תלמידה למופת, ונחושה להצליח. אבל היא זקוקה לעזרתכם.

אם נצליח לגייס את הסכום שהצבנו כיעד, אמא של שרי תוכל לעמוד בהוצאות הרפואיות שלא מכוסות על ידי הקופה, לקבל חוות דעת רפואיות לצורך הביטוח, ולשאת בהוצאות הראשוניות למימון המאבק המשפטי לפיצויים שעומד בפניהם. 

שרי זקוקה גם לטיפול עבור הטראומה הנפשית שחוותה בעצמה וגם על מות חברה הטובה שהיתה לידה ולא שרדה.

תודה על כל עזרה!
