My name is Nikola Dimitrov. I am 42, married to my wife, Helen, and we have two girls – Anna (16) and Mikaela (15).
I will explain why I am making this Fundraiser, but first let me share about something else:
My family is doing everything possible to help needy people and to provide spiritual, emotional and financial support to them. We are volunteering in several charities in our region and beyond.
Some of the people we are taking care of, are totally illiterate people in need of basic education, some are terminally ill people, who need a friend, some are financially devastated people who don’t even have what to eat on a daily basis, nor can they pay their bills. One of the families under our care, before they came to us, had their electricity stopped by the Government for 6 months, including the winter, and they have a small child. I can go on and on. We are doing our best to share our food, our knowledge, our spiritual support and prayers and our finances, with our people.
A year ago, on March 30th 2015, we started doing this work full time. We started with 5 people in our region and now we have more than 30 people in several surrounding villages.

Now for the Fundraiser. We were very happy to do our work among the needy, but several months ago I lost my job. This comes in a time after we, after living 10 years in a very small rented apartment, took a small loan to buy our own. The amount of the loan is NOT big at all, according to Western European or USA standards, but according to Bulgarian ones, it is a LOT. So, right now, our work is endangered severely, and not only our work, but there’s a VERY REAL danger of the Bank taking our apartment. If this happens, we will become as some of the people we are trying to help, if not worse.
The only thing I want right now is to somehow raise some money, if not the whole amount, then at least a significant portion of it, so I can pay off that loan, or to put a significant amount against the Principal, so our monthly payment can be much smaller, which would allow us to continue to serve our people.
I have documentation, photos, credentials and everything needed if anybody wants to have more info about our work, our loan and our family. My personal Email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank You, guys.
