Abe is a dangerously ill father of seven children from Brooklyn. His wife is also expecting a new baby any day now. Their happy family life and livelihood was shattered when he became ill. He has suffered internal bleeding and just underwent major surgery. Abe has a long recovery ahead of him, and he will not be able to work at all for at least six months. He is 37 years old and works as a contractor, and he is the sole breadwinner of his family.

Abe is someone whose life has exemplified Chesed “Kindness.” He has always been a volunteer rushing to help out other community members with any need, large or small. He regularly visited the sick in the hospital, drove people to doctors’ appointments and did acts of chesed every day. Now after a lifetime of giving to others, he desperately needs our help.

Ahavas Chesed is spearheading an urgent campaign to help this very seriously ill father and his family. We are seeking to raise at least $35,000 right now to help them through this terrible period. Please donate to help us help this beautiful family.

אייב הוא אב לשבעה ילדים מברוקלין החולה במחלה קשה. אשתו מצפה ללידת תינוק בימים הקרובים. חיי המשפחה המאושרים שלהם הופרעו באחת כשאייב חלה. הוא סבל מדימום פנימי ונדרש לניתוח מציל חיים. כעת מצפה לו תהליך הבראה ארוך והוא לא יוכל לעבוד כלל לפחות במשך ששת החודשים הקרובים. אייב הוא בן 37 ועובד כקבלן, והוא המפרנס היחיד של משפחתו.

אייב הוא אדם שחייו משמשים דוגמא לאהבת חסד וטוב לב. הוא תמיד התנדב ורץ לסייע לחברי קהילה אחרים כשהיו זקוקים לסיוע גדול או קטן. באופן קבוע הוא ביקר חולים מאושפזים, הסיע מטופלים לפגישות רפואיות והראה מעשי חסד לאחרים בכל יום. עכשיו, אחרי חיים של נתינה לאחר, הוא זקוק בדחיפות לסיוע שלנו.

ארגון אהבת חסד מוביל את הקמפיין לסיוע לאב החולה ובני משפחתו ומתכוונים לגייס לפחות $35,000 כדי לעזור להם לעבור את התקופה הקשה בשלום. אנא תרמו ברוחב לב למשפחה נפלאה זו.

Thank you to the community for your incredible generosity and kindness. We cannot thank you enough—thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Just to give you an update, Abe is still recuperating from his recent relapse. His wife is also out of the hospital now. He is now out of the hospital, but he has no energy, and has not yet gotten his strength back. It will take several months at least for the body to heal. He continues to work with all his doctors, and with a physical therapist. Although progress has been made, it will be a while before he is able to at all go back to his job as a contractor. He is able to walk a little bit now, he plays with his children, but he cannot yet lift anything, and has no stamina. In the meantime the huge bills keep coming in, and we are continuing our fundraising efforts on his behalf. Thank you to the community for everything, for your donations and for your prayers. We beg you to please continue to donate to help this wonderful father of 8.

Abe and his wife were blessed with a new baby girl two weeks ago. He now has a beautiful family of 8 children. After surgery, he now still has to recuperate, and cannot work at all for the next several months at least. He also cannot lift anything yet, not even his new baby. The burdens of the home and family now fall entirely on his wife, as he cannot physically help out in the house. His body is still healing, and it is hard. He also has additional expenses for medical equipment, and his crucial physical therapy is not covered entirely by insurance. He has many large expenses, but thank G-d he is gradually recovering.
