- 16 December 2022
Kate is a 40 year old teacher, who works full time and has two children aged 6 and 1. During Lockdown her husband started to drink and suffer with his mental health, it got out control and he became alcoholic dependent. After he went missing and almost died, he ended up in hospital, had a full detox and mental health support. He is now on his way to a full recovery and is nearly ready to start work but in the meantime, Kate has had to keep everything together and the bills have started to mount up. Kate asked for some help towards food.
The Barzilai funds were used to give the family supermarket vouchers during a highly critical moment of need.
