My name is Kerece White, and I am a 19-year-old young woman. I am the daughter of Marlon White. Unfortunately, ten years ago, my dad was involved in an accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down. Recently, he has also developed a heart condition and has been experiencing seizures.
Currently, it’s just me, my older sister, younger sister, and my mother’s son living with my dad. After my dad became disabled, my mother decided to leave our family. Despite the challenges, my younger sister is excelling academically in second form at a top high school. However, it falls upon my older sister and me to take care of our father.
Our living conditions are far from ideal. We all reside in a cramped 2-bedroom house, which isn’t wheelchair accessible. The bathroom is unfinished, and we lack proper kitchen facilities, using a makeshift zinc setup. Our access to running water is limited to an 800-liter black drum, and we have been without electricity since last year December.
Given our situation, I’m reaching out to request assistance in pursuing my dream of studying psychology at university. The cost for a 4-year degree is $12,000 USD, and any support would mean the world to me.
Additionally, we desperately need funds to improve our living conditions and provide my dad with better accommodations suited to his medical needs. The estimated costs for materials are as follows:
– Steel 2 TON: $1,600 USD
– Marl 2 loads: $776.00 USD
– Cement 300 bags: $2,427.00 USD
– Sand 2 loads: $1,155.00 USD
– Blocks (1000): $1,000 USD
– Manual labor: $6,473 USD
The total amount required for these improvements is $13,240.00 USD.
We do not receive any governmental assistance, and we are struggling to make ends meet on our own. My older sister used to work, but due to our dad’s deteriorating health, she had to stop. Currently, I am working part-time on a farm, but I am determined to further my education.
Your generous donations will not only help me pursue my dream of becoming a psychologist but also greatly enhance my father’s quality of life. Your support in providing him with a wheelchair-accessible bathroom and a proper kitchen will make a significant difference in his daily life and comfort.
Thank you for considering our situation, and any contribution you can make will be deeply appreciated by our family. Together, we can make a positive impact on my dad’s well-being and my educational journey.
