The electronics repair shops are all gone.
They have been converted to apartments, which are expensive to maintain.
The owners can’t afford to repair them.
They cannot afford to rent them.
A lot of them are in the middle of bankruptcy.
What to do?
Many of them were abandoned, and it’s up to us to save them.
Some of them belong to families with very few assets and who cannot afford the rent.
In the past, we were given a loan.
The bank put a down payment, but then they were unable to pay.
It was just the first step.
There are lots of opportunities for us.
We need to take advantage of them.
What we need to do is to make a change.
The solution is to invest in them and help them build up their finances.
I’m an engineer.
I work on building houses, so I have experience in that field.
My job is to help them repair.
I do the same thing every day.
We should use our experience and make the best out of the situation.
It is important to give them the opportunity to start a business.
They need to make an investment, and we should invest the money.
What should we do?
We have to be realistic.
They can’t just go and do it themselves.
There needs to be an opportunity for them to invest their money.
We will not allow them to be stuck in the basement of a building.
We have an obligation to give back to them.
That means building a business to build their business.
We are a small group of people.
We cannot afford that.
That’s why we need the support of the public.
If you would like to donate money, you can do so through the donation page.
I will be making donations through PayPal.
You can donate using PayPal by visiting www.donate.co.il, or by sending a check made out to “E-4, Jerusalem”, to: [email protected]
We want to be clear that this is not a loan, and that we do not expect the property to be returned.
We don’t want the property returned to the people who abandoned it, who left it to be used for something else, or who have been unable to find a job.
They will not receive any financial benefit.
We also want to point out that there are no plans to turn it into an apartment.
The idea was to provide a place for them, to help people in need.
It’s important to remember that it is not the property that is in danger, but the people.
When the property is in the hands of the family, they will use it as a living space.
We’ll also need to pay for their rent.
That will require a little more work.
I hope that this will make people think about the plight of the people living in these buildings.
I also hope that the people will consider that it’s better to give money to the government rather than taking it from the families of those who left the properties.
That is why we have made donations to the Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian Land Authority.
They’re doing a good job in keeping these buildings in operation.
But they can’t do it alone.
We can do that.
I am convinced that we can do a lot to help the people in these structures.
We hope that everyone will give us their support.
We know that if we do that, we can build up these businesses, which will create jobs for them.
Thank you very much.
