Weʼre raising £2,000 to Help a single parent with 2 kids who just lost their mother
- Children and youth
- Time left
- 21 days to go
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
My name is Miaz Akemapa. I'm married and has 2 wonderful kids. 7 yrs daughter and 4 yrs old boy.
We were happy and living a normal life. Until a few months ago, my wife has passed away. Leaving me become a single parent, being a father and a mother for our childrens.
I have to quit my daily job, and become freelancer (programmer) to take care of the kids. Because my daughter is in her first year of school.
I take her to school in the morning, taking care of home (cleaning, laundry, lunch, etc), pick her up after school, all done by my self.
And i work as freelancer at evening / night.
That made me sleep by 2 am and woke up at 5 am. Everyday.
I was fine with that.
But the first problem, my daughter has a complex disorder called "Selective Mutism" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selective_mutism),
which causing her unable to speak and communicate on some situation. In her case, at school.
She cannot speak, communicate, and follows any school activity. She just keep silent, and do nothing in class.
At first i thought it was just for a few days, and she just feeling shy with that.
But it's been 5 months, and she still being that.
I have met with several psychologist, no changes.
Some suggests me to take her to extraordinary school, for special treatment.
But that's really expensive, and we cannot afford that.
And now everything is getting worst.
Since i have to pay bills, credits, motgage, and still need to feed the kids, but my income as a freelancer is not enough, and it's uncertain.
Banks now demand me to pay the credits, i have arrears for months.
And our house is threatened seized by banks this month, because i cannot pay the mortgage.
It makes me depressed :(
I have nothing left, i just want to keep the kids stay happy and living normally. I want to take my daughter for a treatment, and also fix my financial problem.
But i cannot do this by myself now.
I need your help, any support will be really appreciated.
