Help Single Mom of 5 - Mental Health Issues

PLEASE READ

Hi everyone
I am raising money to help out my mother Dikla, a single mother of 5

This is her story
My mother married when she was 17 and fresh out of highschool. Soon after she had her first child, and then soon after , by the age of 23 she already had 5 children.
When she was 25, my father left her and his kids behind.

With no degree above a highschool certificate, no job, and no family in the county to help my mother was truly left alone to raise her 5 kids, all infants and young children.
As the strong woman that she is, she enrolled in university, on loans and government assistance.
After 10 long years, she finally completed her bachelor's and master's degree!

In 2012 she began to work as a  public speech therapist at a rehabilitation centre which isn't a high paying job but she loves it!

All these years without work however, means a LOT of debt given that she had NO income at the time, and 5 children to feed, clothe, shelter and educate all while paying for her studies.
Although shes been working for almost 10 years now, the debt has piled so high thats itll it at least another 15 years until it's all payed off.

To make matters worse, my brother was diagnosed with a mental health disorder about three years ago. On top of all her expenses, she's had to keep up with paying for all his medical bills and medicine which are very very costly.

My mom has worked SOOO hard to provide for us all these years and I really wish she could have all of this extra stress lifted. She doesn't deserve to keep stressing over debt and bills for another 15-20 years.
After all she's been through, completing a MASTER'S degree while raising 5 little kids on her OWN, she really deserves a break 
I want her to be free of debt and finally start living her life for herself.
I want her to be able to retire at a fair age because she really deserves all the rest she can get

Please please help with whatever you can
