They left to get the groceries. We never saw them again.
When my parents passed away, it was the beginning of my life as an orphan. Now that I’m engaged, I’m nearing new chapter again: Having my own home, and my own family.
However my kallah and I have yet to find a place to live that we can afford. We are missing other basics, like kitchen supplies, appliances, and beds.
After all I’ve been through, we were ready to give up.
That’s when the phone rang.
Kupat Ha’Ir had looked into our backgrounds and financial situations, and we were to become two of “Rav Chaim Kanievsky’s orphans.”
This month, we will be getting married with their help. That is, if we can raise enough.
This is just my story, but there are 23 other orphans like me, each with their own past, who are part of this program.
The Gedolei Yisroel have also gotten involved. Those who donate will have their names added to the prayer lists of both Rav Shteinman and Rav Chaim Kanievsky.
The rest of the orphans and I are praying that you will open your hearts and help us. Only Hashem knows the loss, humiliation, and suffering we’ve all been through. And we are counting on you.
Thank you so much,
Donations can also be made to Kupat Ha’Ir Foundation # 4550
