Today is my birthday and my one wish this year was to go home to my family in the Eastern Cape and celebrate with them. I left home 2 years ago in search for a job and the jobs I got never allowed me any holidays while paying little money. With the little that I had, I had to send home for my siblings to buy essentials like school uniforms and food. I miss my family so dearly. During the covid 19 pandemic a few of my siblings tested positive for the corona virus and I could not eveb travel back home to be with them. The fear that I had of something happening to them w kohile I was away for close to 3 years now was insurmountable. I unfortunately got retrenched from my job and spent my last savings sending money home during the lockdown period as I could not go home myself. I currently have no job, i cannot afford to pay rent, i cannot afford electricity or even money to go home and be with my family after everything that has happened. I was depressed for months and I have not fully recovered as I cannot even afford money to see a therapist. All I ask is someone out there to help me raise funds so I can go home and be with my family and also be able to buy them what I could not for the past 3 months as the savings have run dry. I miss home and I am afraid of even hurting myself because of this depression. Any donation or help is greatly appreciated.
