“When my husband and I first heard about the Hebrew Free Loan Society (HFLS), we were at a breaking point.
For eight years we had been trying to get pregnant and had exhausted every option available to us. When the doctor told us that our last hope would be extremely costly In Vitro Fertilization treatments, we didn’t know where to turn. That’s when we heard about HFLS’s 0%-interest Fertility Treatment Loan. We applied and quickly received the support we needed to continue pursuing our dream of having a child. Now, one year later, we are blessed to announce that we are the parents of two healthy twins.
Our family was finally happy and at peace; until just a few weeks ago, when the crisis in Ukraine began.
My father, mother, sister, and my two nieces are all in Ukraine and have found themselves in an impossible situation. Because no one is able to work, they are now lacking the means to afford basic necessities such as food and water.
My husband and I have tried to do everything in our power to help, but with two young children to care for, money is stretched thin; we can’t afford to send the funds that they need. When we received an email from HFLS about the availability of interest-free loans for those with families affected by this devastating situation, we felt as if a weight had been lifted off of our shoulders.
Once again we were able to quickly acquire the funds we needed to help my family, without placing added stress on our own finances. Now we can breathe more easily, knowing that our loved ones have access to the resources they need.
We are incredibly grateful for the help HFLS has provided in both of our times of need, and want to send a heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to the organization that made these life changing loans possible.”
