Hi all, I'm a young man aged 20 turning 21 this Tuesday.
I've recently moved abroad all expenses payed by a family member who wanted me here.
There was an arrangement that if I left my Job, my apartment, my Girlfriend. Basically my life behind, I could start a very good one here.
I trusted this family member. And as I arrived in the Philippines, about 2 weeks in I learned that that the promises that were made to me, were not true.
I was promised a Home that was built for my Grandmother, I could stay there but the home wasn't even built yet.
I was promised a career and I could apply for a Work Visa, but the company does not exist.
And to top it all up, About 4-5 weeks ago, my Grandmother ended up in Hopsital, unable to assist me in the Philippines. I have been stranded ever since, with no Income to look after myself, I've been forced to sell my spare phones my laptop, and my camera's to stay alright.
I have a return flight soon, but when I get back to South Africa I have no home.
My friend has Opted to help me out for a set amount of days, but he himself is struggling financially.
I am trying to raise $1500 due to the reason, i can pay my friend for rent, and get some more clothing, toiletries especially shaving cream and a shave as I haven't shaved in two months, a small laptop orna computer, so I can start working online again, and Earn a stable Income while I try to apply for Jobs, which is rather difficult in South Africa.
I have attached a picture in this post, The only things I have to my name, is my luggage and what's in them.
A backpack with clothing, and a travel bag with clothing.
This is all I have to my name, I have lost everything to a false promise.
And I've been trying to get help for weeks.
Right before giving up, I came across donations websites, and spoke to some really nice people.
I am really hoping someone can help me out.
