    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Hi! I'm Cristian I'm bolivian and currently living in Ireland for the last 2 years so sorry if my english it's not so good I hope you understand.

    My history stars in 2013 I was working good and with my mother we bought a mortgage department valued at 120 000 $us. but at the end of 2013 my brother was very sick and the doctors diagnosed cáncer. Unfortunately in Bolivia the health system for cancer patients is not free and we spend a lot of money in Chemotherapy, doctors, hospitals, medicines very stressful days and finally in May of 2015 my brother was healthy.

    Despite all this we still continue to pay our mortgage (around 1000$us per month) but sadly I was fired from my job. For a few months it was very difficult to pay the mortgage my mother and I continue to work as a freelance because we had the risk of losing our apartment. In Jun of 2015 we decided to come all together to Ireland to work and pay the mortgage and the hope of a better future for me and my family, but sadly it was not like this I was a victim of fraud I lost a lot of money and we could't rent a flat, my brother still sick and my mother began to have psychological problems because it has a very shoking experience. Now we are living in a refugee camp because we can not return to Bolivia if we do not pay our mortgage that why I feel like a prisioner...

    In short this is my story I hope you help me to collect 75 000 and return to have a normal life with our family, friends and continue with my professional career... We just want to be happy again...

    Thank you for reading.
