Yosef Cohen, Father of ten children

Yosef Cohen, is a father of ten children. Trying to make ends meet, and at the same time avoid humiliation, he rises at three o'clock in the morning to clean out the study hall. Understandably, there is nothing extra in the house, many times, not even enough.

One cold, blustery day, little Eitan was shivering on his hard chair in the freezing kitchen. He was chilled to the bone and there was nothing to warm him. Having no choice, he hoisted himself onto the counter and started running the hot water, hoping to bring some relief to his numb fingers. Unfortunately, he underestimated the heat of the water and burned himself badly.

That was enough to prompt the parents to look for help. They concluded that heat was a necessity, not a luxury, and they turned to Warm the Needy for help. They were immediately supplied with a radiator that brought joy and warmth to their home. Knowing their precarious financial situation, Warm the Needy also provided assistance in paying their electric bill. There are no luxuries, but the Cohen family is warm.
