Frank and Ruthie Wey Report (12)

“Thursday in Jerusalem was a long and difficult day. First we visited Pr. She is 22 years old, the sister of J., our patient who passed away last week. J. left 3 children, one of which is in school. There is another sister in school with a small child and Pr. has a small child. Thus, there were four little children, 5 and under, the day we visited. The nurses advised Pr. to apply for an orphan grant for J.’s children, as it is much larger than a normal child grant. She has no job and is responsible for raising 5 children and her sister.

“We visited Fl., a blind gogo [grannie], and bought her a walking stick and sent her to ASM for care of a diabetic wound.

“Th. lives with his sister. He had a job but lost it when he was sick. He is on ARV’s. We left food at all three of these homes.”
