On this eve of New Year’s Eve 2019, I feel I have no other choice than to come to you, complete and total strangers for help. I don’t know how real this site is and whether my appeal for immediate/time sensitive financial help will be answered. However, I am putting my faith and trust in humanity. This may seem a bizarre case but I assure you I know and believe in my heart that we are here to help each anyway possible. We are indeed our brothers keepers.
I have a friend who has struggled for years in poverty often not having any food to eat. Through these financial and many health struggles they have persevered to study, learn English and tried to find a job to make a better life for themselves and their family. Both parents had been ill for many years and my friend has always done their best to put the health and financial needs of their family and siblings ahead of their own.
Sadly, last year one parent died needlessly from diabetes because of lack of funds to provide immediate medical care. This pains me still as I know my friend did everything in their power to prevent this. I have been supporting this friend over the years financially with what I have. I am a single mother with 2 teenagers struggling to make ends meet myself so at this crucial time I am unable to help. The wonderful news: my friend has been accepted with an international humanitarian agency to work in their field of study! This will be a complete game changer..liberation from poverty to financial freedom. They however require to get a driver’s licence and pay for some other paper work needed for travel as well as security for rent to safe guard their shelter in the coming month. The money is needed within the next week. But we don’t have the money to do this. We are very anxious and desperate and pray that we don’t miss this opportunity!
Please, if you can find it in your heart to contribute towards our goal of $600 as soon as possible. We are eternally grateful for any help. I can provide more details upon request. Thank you so very much for your consideration. God bless you.
I am praying that someone’s heart will be touched today. Your help is very much needed. I tried to protect my friend’s identity in my earlier post but I realize it is difficult for anyone to help if my appeal does not seem credible.
I live in Canada however my friend lives in a landlocked country in Africa with a very high poverty rate. Through the hand of God he has manged to overcome many obstacles and barriers from hunger to recurring sicknesses such as typhoide due to contaminated water and malaria. Through it all, he has continued to perservere and study to one day be in a position to really help his family and community. He is a young man of integrity who is trying to leave poverty and change his future and the future of his family. He cannot do it alone.
There is a work opportunity in his field that will change his life! However he needs to obtain a professional driving licence for larger vehicles right away by enrolling in a course this week if possible. There is a deadline for completion which the end of January. The cost of the program is 175 cfa which is about $388 cdn. This is why my appeal is for $600. The balance would go towards securring rent, travel and food. Any amount even $200 would help with the first installment for the program of 70cfa so he can start even tomorrow!
The images are of the auto school pricing list, conversion of cfa to cdn for the full amount or the minimum and some pictures of his living conditions. He can go days without eating or survives on pasta which he often shares one plate..no sauce…with neighbours.
Please, please help. In these countries there is no such thing as social assistance.
If you vacation in less developed countries and if you have ever wondered how you could help the citizens there ( often they come up to us asking for handouts etc.). Please consider this as a way to help 1 individual who would make a ripple effect of kindness and change in his community. Please join me to see my friend reach his goal. He is so close. Let’s be the angels on earth God uses.
I have been helping over the years and many times I have cried to see how positive he remains while going through this very difficult season in his life. He prays to God always. I just can’t help anymore for now due to my own financial limitations that’s why I am reaching out to you.
Thank you so much for your consideration. I know there is a lot of need out there so thank you.
