We at OneFamily and the Ivgi family are grateful for the financial assistance provided by Peula. With the allocation, David’s wife, Moran was able to address some of their mounting bills and expenses. This is a very difficult time for the family – and the knowledge that a community abroad empathized with their situation and reached out in support, has provided them a tremendous amount of strength. David is 40 years old, married, and the father of two children. Until seven months ago, he lived in Kiryat Malachi and worked as a truck driver. His family was his entire world - he worked overtime so his wife, Moran could be home with their children after preschool. Moran worked at a major grocery store, Rami Levi. Operation Pillar of Defense broke out on November 14, 2012 in an effort by Israel to stop the ongoing rocket fire to Southern Israel. For the duration of the Operation, 1450 rockets were fired at Israel. It was a difficult situation and millions of Israelis were at risk of death or injury. Air raid sirens rang throughout the South warning people to seek cover. On November 15, 2012, the day after the Operation began, David was driving his truck when he heard the siren. As he was supposed to - he got out of his truck crouching on the ground with his arms covering his head. A car, not hearing the siren and not seeing David, hit him at high speed. David has remained in a coma for the past seven months. He is currently in the Beit Levenstein rehabilitation center. Recently, he began experiencing some reflexes which is considered increased improvement. Moran is now only able to visit him every three days since she has returned to work. His mother travels two hours each day to be with him. Thank you so much for being part of our OneFamily, your kindness and generosity is valuable and cherished.
