I reach out my hand in need for some help for my dearest friend.
His story is:
He has come from Africa and he has worked very hard and has finally got a job in order to support his family. He has a wife and 5 wonderful children. Recently, things have taken a turn for the worse as his mother unfortunately fell very ill in Africa. He used some of his wage to go visit her and get care for her however she needed an operation. He worked tirelessly to raise money for her operation however it was not enough, and he was running out of time so he tried getting a loan from the bank which was refused. He was given the option of a credit card, but the interest rate was very high. He had no choice but to go ahead and get a credit card, so his mother could have the live saving operation.
He has one brother and one sister who stated they would help him pay it back however they have turned their backs and he is left alone to pay for this debt. His children have had to leave education as he cannot afford it. He wants to go visit his mother for Christmas however he cannot afford to pay for the flight. His wage is just about enough to put a bit of basic food on the table for his family and to pay the rent. Him and his family have sold most of the items that belong to them to help towards the debt and to help support the family.
He receives letters every month showing him how much he must pay back on the debt and it is increasing each time. He is struggling enormously, and the stress of this debt is causing sleepless nights, and a lot of friction at home. At the time, taking out the debt was what he had to do to help get his mother better as he cannot imagine life without her. Now, he is in a position where he doesn't know what to do anymore as he works tirelessly but feels as though it is not enough- he feels as though he is not earning enough to support his family and pay this debt.
I am asking for your help to help him and his family during this difficult time to get back on their feet, no human deserves to be in the position he is so, please; even the littlest donations will help. He has a big beautiful family to take care of, but he is struggling to do so. I pray earnestly for your support.
Thank you and God bless
