My name is Alex Harding, I am here in the US as an international student at Laney College, Oakland CA intending to major in Economics. My uncle who sponsored me in getting here passed away 2 months ago. I have been an orphan almost all my life. Both parents died in a car accident. I have finished both the fall and spring semesters of last academic year. My uncle passed before he could pay for my spring tuition and that has left me stranded.

I have no family back home that is able to help me and if I am to succeed in my life I must get educated. I still owe the school for spring semester and I cannot enroll for fall unless I clear the back log and pay for fall.

I have a very low vision with blindness in my left eye and a 20/200 vision in my seeing eye. Learning is very difficult for me and I have put an extra effort which has helped me get to the level I am. If I should get stuck at this stage it will be really devastating for my existence. I have nothing to return back home to and if I am unable to meet my financial requirements with the school, I will be sent back home. Going back home without a degree or certificate will be shameful and make life hard for me especially when I barely have any family. The situation in my country is not favorable. As the economy is in shambles and we have a huge health hazard there right now that has claimed up to a 100 lives in two weeks.

I am pleading with you to please help me with whatever you can so that I can be able to get my Associate degree at least. Donating to my education will not only bring a blessing to my life but also a lot of people that I will be helping back home upon my return.

Thank you for reading my plight and I hope that a strike of sympathy and kindness will hit you, to aid in my pursuit for a better life.
