Oscar and Orit, a married couple in their 90s who are both Holocaust survivors, are both in poor health. They have no other family and their small apartment in Beer Sheba has deteriorated over time as their savings dwindled. But they knew about Yad Sarah—and that Yad Sarah branches have a mobile repair service for any fix-it needs. In Beer Sheba, where Oscar and Orit live, these volunteers have serviced more than 800 apartments.
For Oscar and Orit, the repairs changed everything. Without having to lift a finger or spend a penny, within four days, volunteers replaced cracked tiles, fixed lighting, brought in new appliances, and cleaned up. "Before you came, I just wanted to die. Now, I want to live!" exclaimed Oscar.
Home services like these exemplify Yad Sarah's commitment to bringing help and hope to the people of Israel.
