I hope everyone is doing great and in great health.
My name is Ibrahim Kassis, I was born in Syria, My father is French, My mother Jordanian, and we relocated to Lebanon. Long story short, I had to leave Lebanon in 2018, leaving my studies short, because of the circumstances that occurred there, and still occur there. And so I left to work on myself, and evolve to find better opportunities.
Eventually I ended up in Belgium in 2019, as a street musician, and it was working great for me, I was happy doing fine, enough to survive, but then in january 2020 I was attacked in the street after my performance, which damaged my mouth and couldn’t play the saxophone anymore for a while, and that set me back alot.
So I started searching for a job, doing little things, and then we were in a lockdown because of the Covid-19 situation, we had the quarantine, no one could do anything, I was getting accepted in any job, and I got into more problems and debts, I even got attacked in my own house as well, I had some help, but still it was too much to handle, I tried asking for some organizations help or the government, but they have some rules and regulations that help people with Belgium electronic card and some things I did not understand at all. Until I found UberEats delivery, and I thought to myself, I can get a used bicycle from someone and sign up.
I got a used rusty bicycle from a guy for 25 euros, and I got accepted, and it was okay, but the bike had problems with the pedal and the seet, but I was managing it, the downside was that there are alot of upwards roads here around me so I was too slow. Then I had some problems because I had to park the bicycle outside because I don’t have space in my tiny room, and I live on the last floor of a building with tiny stairs, so some people kept messing with it, and the rain wasn’t helping with the rust, and i’m barely making rent, and getting free food from the community, also my family in Lebanon cannot support me due to issues going on there.
And that is why I am here, because I need help to get some funding to get a second hand electric scooter, to get better at my job, because I really love my job, and I have been searching for second hand new scooters which usually in new condition cost between 1500+ and 2000+ euros, but i have found second hand new ones that cost much less, and i hope i can achieve at least a 1000, and that will help me get what I need which will be the first step to solving my problems.
I hope my request reaches the right people who have experienced what I have been through, and know what it is to keep pushing to thrive and evolve, to survive.
