Mrs. Moskowitz donated over 120,000$ and started a dental treatments fund for children, over 100 children have enjoyed her generosity since 2008 and can now smile wide.
We often take a smile for granted, but for many young children it's not.
9 year old Shai was having difficulty eating for a long time, cold and hot foods caused him acute pain.
"It started with a small filling," said Shai's mother. "I took him to the dentist, who told me it would cost $70. He also told me Shai would need another two fillings and possibly an extraction, But I knew I could never find the money for that, I'm a mother of three and I earn 1,000$ a month, barely making ends meet. I can't find the money to pay for dental care, so I said we'd wait in the meantime until we can afford it."
But time went by and debts increased. Shai's pain became stronger and his mother was at a loss.
She called Haverim: "Shai's not sleeping, he's such a good child and he doesn't complain, he knows we can't afford it so he just asks for another painkiller, and I'm scared he'll get addicted to them"
Little Shai was in luck, on that very same day his mother called us for help, we met with Mrs. Moskowitz's representative. Mrs. Moskowitz is a long time philanthropist and supporter of Haverim.
We told him Shai's story, and those of five other children with similar problems. It did not take Mrs. Moskowitz long. She immediately donated 13,000$ to relieve these kids of their suffering and see them smiling again. The money was transferred directly to the dental clinics.
Shai's mother called us recently. Shai underwent treatment and the improvement was immediate.
Having been exposed to the children stories, Mrs. Moskowitz decided to donate over 120,000$ and start a dental treatments fund for children, over 100 children have enjoyed her generosity since 2008 and can now smile wide.
Mrs. Moskowitz also donated some 200,000$ towards kidney transplant operations, this allows 7 patients to undergo the operations thus far and enjoy a new start in life.
