I wouldn’t be writing this if you weren’t my last hope.
So my boyfriend and I are from Macedonia. We do not have a lot but we do have our love for each other. We decided to move to abroad and work in an European country because at our home country we do not have the conditions to even earn enough so we can live through the month. We sold everything we had and even some of our friends and our families helped a bit so we can come to the amount we need to pay our plane tickets, to rent an apartment there and a little bit of money for food once we get there and start earning. Everything was running as planed until…
It was the night of my birthday 20th of August when my boyfriend came to me and brought me a birthday cupcake (it’s all we can afford at this time, but it tasted like love) we had a great night stargazing and dreaming of our future when we move abroad in a couple of weeks and then the phone rang. It was his grandmother, crying and scared. Someone broke in and stole all of our savings all of the 5000 euros which we were collecting in the past year so we can start our lives together….
At this time that I’m writing this, it’s exactly one week apart from us being homeless, with shattered dreams and future. I have previously seen what you have done for some other people in need on this site and I thought it was heart warming and beyond humane. Back then I never thought I will be one of them asking for help but I have no other choice. If you’re able and willing to give us a little push I will be so grateful for it, you’d probably save our lives.
