Michael Cherney Foundation Helps a Family of Orphans
The Tabakins family consisting of nine orphaned siblings came to Israel eight years ago from the former Soviet Union . Soon, they found themselves in dire straits. The filial love was the problem: they resisted all attempts of the social services to separate them and send them to different homes.
Three of the brothers were drafted, but the Army refused to grant them “family-less” status, thus making them ineligible for various benefits. To boot, one of the brothers has been diagnosed with cancer. Eventually the family found themselves deep in debt and virtually at the edge of starvation. Fortunately, Michael Cherney Foundation came to the rescue, helping them solve their financial problems and stay together.
