Faces of The Fellowship: Galina

As a child, Galina endured the horrors of the Holocaust, including the loss of her family. Now, at 74 years old, this survivor once again feels desperate and alone.Four years ago, Galina had major surgery on her pelvis, and since then it has been difficult for her to walk. Further complicating matters, Galina also suffers from hypertension and heart disease. These health problems force her to remain in her apartment; she often goes days without talking to another person. Galina has a son in Belarus, but he is wrapped up in his own life, and her daughter lives in the United States. For Galina, who can barely even afford to put food on the table, the thought of buying a plane ticket is out of the question. Thankfully, The Fellowship provides Galina with a bank card that allows her to purchase food and much-needed medicine. She is able to live with dignity and knows that she will not have to go without any basic necessities. She is so thankful to The Fellowship!
