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.
On the 29th of September my husband was Locked up in the prison in Saudi because he was accused of " theft" by the company he works for there. The employer wants us to pay £6000 (27500 Riyal ~) for him to be free and sent here back to the Philippines. So the money gathered here is to help free him and get him sent back to Philippines
Before they sent him to jail. The policemen hit him and forced him to sign some paper which he didn't understand because it was written in Arabic words.
Prior that my husband was assigned in Riyadh but he was sent to Alkubahr to undergo training for shift manager.
He was staying for a few weeks but since there was a lack of staff he was asked to stay for few more weeks
During his stay in alkubahr whenever he checked the inventory, he always mentioned to me that there were some losses on that specific store but as he happened to be working at the time the police came to the shop him along with some others working with him were just taken and blamed.
We are really worried because he could be locked away there for 5 to 10 years for something he hasn't done. We just want him back safe and we are really worried that his life is in danger there.
Thank you to anyone that can help. Any amount will help towards it and we are trying to raise some money from family and friends but we have only managed to gather half of the money so far and still need £2500.
