Hi you can call me Kei. I am 22 years old and my goal is to help my brother live a better life
This is our story:
When I was 14 years old, I knew that I was adopted and I had a brother that I need to find. My family did not allow me to look for my real family unless I graduate in college but during those years I have already been searching for them and I gathered some clues. After waiting for around 8 years, I have finally graduated from college and asked permission from my adoptive brother if I could find my biological brother.
I had links as to where he is and who the members of my family are. Came February 2017, I was able to contact a family member and together with one of my adoptive brothers, we went to find my brother and by God's grace I had finally met him after 8 long years of patiently waiting.
The reason behind our separation is because we were given away by the relatives of our mother. We were born in Batasan Island in Bohol. My brother was born on April 10 1993 and they could not forget it because it was a feast day of a specific saint. My relatives could not remember my birth date so my adoptive family had to make a birthdate for me near their estimated date when I could have been born. As I have been he is my half brother. We have different fathers that we don't know if they are alive or not. Our mother already passed away and not even a glimpse did I see her but my half brother saw her when he was young. We have different fathers because we were born out of rape. Our mother was mentally incapacitated and a lot of men harassed her that's why we were brought up to this world. I went to the island where we were born and not a trace of my mother did they have. I was only able to visit her grave but no one had even a picture of her. They told me that my mother had bad luck and I thought it could have been the reason that they didn't take care of her. though I dont really know the real story.
Back to my brother, he lives in an island. He's 2 years older than me and although we are biological siblings, we don't look alike because we are said to have different fathers. He finished schooling only up to the elementary level. He gets a living by fishing so yes he is a fisherman. He borrows a boat from his close friends so he could fish. However, seasons are difficult and there are a lot of times when it is very hard to catch fishes that's why what he does is, he goes with his friends to assist during bookings for island hopping. He does less work with this because he only drives the pumpboat and gets paid for his work for the day. Less hardwork than fishing. However, doing this is also not a guarantee that they could have money to survive the week or the day.
The island where my brother lives is a very beautiful island. It is small and peaceful. There is a fish sanctuary and many tourists often go there. It's called Hilutongan Island in Cebu which is one of the islands where those that go on island hopping in Mactan Area would probably drop by. The island may be very beautiful but it lacks development basically because the people residing in the island have no control over the environmental fees that the island receives from tourists. The island has no steady electricity. They only have electricity from 5pm to 11pm. My brother lives in the house left by his wife's parents. He is good with carpentry so he can really aid this family with his skills.
Income for him is not steady and not just for him but for the people in the island. I am doing this fundraising to help him get a boat so he can do both fishing and island hopping and whenever I would have friends I could refer him. I cannot personally help him since I just graduated from college. I wanted him to have an education but he must have been very used to the island life. So if you believe in my story please help me. You can send me a message personally to verify if this is legit. I pray to God that this might prosper.
