Ruth has been her mother’s caretaker, and now she gets to go to school

Ruth’s mother, Yael, suffered severe injuries a few years ago when she was shot by Islamic terrorists in the body and face, resulting in shattered facial bones. Despite undergoing multiple reconstructive surgeries, she was left disfigured and has many other health issues. 

Tragically, the terrorist attack also claimed the lives of Ruth’s grandmother and a friend. 

Recently, Yael experienced cardiac arrest due to her ongoing challenges, leaving her in a coma. 

As the oldest daughter, Ruth has shown remarkable strength in caring for her mother at the hospital, as well as taking care of her father and younger siblings. 

Now, for the first time, Ruth is pursuing something for herself—her dream to study reflexology. 

Ruth truly deserves this chance. Thanks to support from people like you, Ruth is going to attend college and pursue her dreams. 

She begins classes during the summer session, and it has already been paid for thanks to the donations she has received. 

She has a strong spirit and, despite her unthinkable circumstances, she remains positive and grateful. 

Thank you so much for your support. 

“Generous people will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11:25)

Letter from Ruth: 

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your contribution to me for the studies that, with God’s help, I am starting to study next year. It’s been a very difficult year and a half for me. 

My mother went into cardiac arrest, and she is now almost a year and a half in the hospital in a coma. 

I stopped working and stopped doing things for myself. 

I am happy that next year I will start studying what I wanted.

 And it’s thanks to your help!! 

I appreciate you so much! 

 May you always be able to give with joy.

 God bless you.

Thank you again 

With love, 

Ruth H.
