Hello, my name is Hicham. I feel obligated to introduce myself.
I’m part of a family of five (dad, mom, and my two brothers), that until now has been supported by me and my father. But a few days ago my father finally chose to give up everything, for Gambling.
Our family used to be average somewhat, our dad had quite an okay income, but then his addiction got worse and worse with time and I had to drop out of high school to support our income. I made it work somewhat, I made around 100$, and he supported us with another 200. he used to provide 300, but as I said due to addiction that dropped. I filled the last 100 needed for us to survive.
This has been the case for years now. But each time he is getting worse and worse until earlier he just refused to give us this month’s quota. And now I’m desperate to support my family. I love them all.
My little brother is still studying as he is only 14 years old. and even though he wants to drop, I am not letting him… My bigger brother has issues… He sees a shrink regularly and can’t even hold a conversation with mom that raised him, thus I can’t rely on him for work, and I wouldn’t even think of forcing him.
The income in my country (Based in Africa) is low as you can notice from what I said (And even lower due to Covid). This leaves me and my mother. She is a housewife, and can’t do anything other than clean or cook, but I won’t let her do such a thing! I tried to get this under control for a few days now since dad abandoned us, I tried to ask for a small raise, enough to support us, and the fact that I’m here asking, on this website that I am unfamiliar with and not sure if my words will even be read by someone, should tell you everything.
We can’t sue him, we can’t afford to eat now much less get an attorney. And supposing we can, the child support we will get is about 40$ for my younger brother, since eme and my big brother are older than 18. It is not worth it. Even if mom were to divorce him, this isn’t America… she will get nothing.
Please, if you read this, and you are financially well and can spar this amount, Help me!
I will never forget this favor. I am a man of religion. And in my religion we never forget a kindness made to us, I will forever thank you and pray for your wellbeing. Please. I’m working more, eating less(Today I ate boiled corn for dinner… the only thing I had…), and not sleeping well… Please!!
I have even started a writing hobby for a while now and have been making some 10$ as support from the readers, it is the only thing happy for me since dropping off… I go by the pen name: Crazyguest.
