As many of you may be aware, the situation in Venezuela is perilous at best. The inflation rate has skyrocketed so much in the last few years that it has left the Bolivar (the currency in Venezuela) practically worthless. American dollars are being bought on the Black Market and because of the horrible economic situation, the exchange rate fluctuates on a daily basis.
People are starving to the point that they don't rob one another for gold or silver, but for a mere piece of bread.
That all being said, my 32-year old brother, finds himself in a very serious situation.
The doctors have told him that his Adonoids have inflamed to the point that he requires surgery immediately. If he does not get this surgery, it will be life-threatening.
The operation and after-care costs will be around $2.000 CAD. Since the inflation is so bad, this isn't even the guaranteed price from the hospital.
Therefore, we are appealing for your help to urgently raise these funds. Any amount will be a pikuach-nefesh (the saving of a human life) and will greatly help us provide him this much-needed operation.
In the spirit of the upcoming holiday of Pesach (Passover) please help my brother Alejandro celebrate the "festival of our freedom" in true joy and freedom from worry by helping to contribute to this worthy and urgent cause.
All prayers for Alejandro ben Aliza (the 'j' is pronounced as an 'h'), especially Psalm #33 for good health and a speedy recovery are most welcomed.
May G-d certainly see fit to abundantly bless you all and "fulfill your will as if it were His will" for all your help spreading the word and donating generously, with blessings for good health, an abundance of wealth and lots of nachas to you and your loved ones!
May we merit to see the coming of our Righteous and True Redeemer, King Moshiach, immediately in our days, b'poal mamash!
Warmest and most sincere regards,
Rochel and Melekh Brikman
