A Bubbe With a Broken Heart
Mother of 11 and grandmother of nearly 200, Mrs. Chana Hirschman, has accustomed herself to sacrificing for her family. However after one of her children became ill, the Hirschmans were drained of all of the resources they had, and forced to sell their home. Mr. Hirschman is now ill as well, and growing weak in his old age. The responsibility for maintaining their home has been placed on Chana, who is not a young woman.
The Hirschmans are now elderly, weak, and homeless.
Their children are in tremendous debt themselves, and unable to help them. Mrs. Hirschman has started a moving fundraising campaign, hoping that strangers will help herself & her husband to return home. The campaign text is signed “Sincerely, a Bubbe with a broken heart.”
Their request is a reasonable one. They are old, they are sick, and they desperately wish to return home. It has yet to be determined if that will happen, or if they will spend the rest of their lives with the humiliation of sleeping in others’ homes.
Donations are being accepted HERE to ‘send Bubbe home.’
