Introduction:

I reside in a country where the vulnerable and weak are targeted by heartless predators. Unfortunately, my parents fell victim to these predators and lost their life savings. My brother and I joined forces to support their financial needs, but tragically, he passed away during the Covid pandemic. Since my parents were staying with him at the time, I took them in and continued to provide for their ongoing needs.

About My Father:

My father was more than just a parent; he was a pillar of strength, a wellspring of wisdom, and a friend to all who had the pleasure of knowing him. His love, kindness, and generosity touched the lives of countless individuals. He tirelessly worked to provide for our family and assist those in need until he could no longer do so.

The Challenge:

Yesterday, my father passed away at home after a brief illness, just weeks before his 79th birthday. Unfortunately, I find myself already burdened with $15,000 in debt, which accumulated over time due to the strain of covering their medical and day-to-day expenses. The cost of a basic cremation is simply overwhelming, and I am now faced with the daunting task of covering these expenses while grieving his loss. Although I can request a payment plan from the funeral service, I am uncertain whether I can manage the repayments given my existing debt.

How You Can Help:

I humbly request your support in honoring my father's memory and providing him with the farewell he truly deserves. Your contribution, no matter how small, will make a significant difference in helping me cover the funeral expenses.

My Gratitude:

Your support means the world to me during this challenging time. I am deeply grateful for your kindness, generosity, and the love you have shown to our family.

Closing Thoughts:

By honoring my father's memory, I aim to celebrate the love and positivity he brought into our lives. Together, we can ensure that he receives a dignified farewell that reflects the profound impact he had on

The PayPal account was hacked and all the money raised was stolen, so I am stopping the fundraiser. Attempts to recover the monies through PayPal channels have failed . All I can say as a parting note is don't use PayPal
