Family of 9 in severe poverty

This family of 9 in Kosovo is barely living off of their father's disability pension, a mere 80 euros a month. The parents have 7 children and live in a home with barely any heat which is tearing apart. The daughter in the begininng of the video is explaining how her father is unable to work because he suffers from a heart disease and had 2 strokes. She further explains how she is embarassed to go to school because  her classmates contiuously make fun of her for wearing the same clothes everyday and for begging for money for food. She goes on to say that her teacher has caught her asking her classmates for money and has kicked her out of the multiple times. She expressed how she is just trying to bring home bread to her family because they live off of a loaf of bread for 2 to 3 days at a time. In the end of her interview she says "I cannot live like this anymore".

Can you please find it deep down from the kindess of your heart to help this family out. We often forget how fortunate we are and only when we see videos or images, such as this, do we realize it. I came across this video on my feed and it touched me so much. I could not stop thinking about it. I would love to help this family out as much as I can so they no longer have to suffer for food or from humiliation from their classmates.
