Hello, my name is Dora, my sister is called Kate and we live in Athens, Greece.The past few years have been very difficult for us and of course for the majority of Greek people because of the Greek debt crisis that started in 2009. This was the reason for many people to loose their jobs and their properties because Greece had to take austerity measures in order to overcome the crisis. Unfortunately Greece did not manage to overcome the crisis, so today after almost 8 years we still face the problem of unemployment and the problem that many people can't afford to buy even the necessity goods.
So, many people lost the majority of their income and one of these victims was my mother. As a child in a single-parent family I have been seeing my mother trying to help me and my sister to find a job and to stand on our feet. I was lucky enough and I get hired in a small accounting firm and so I can pay my bills. The problem is that despite the fact that here in Greece we face that crisis, the prices of goods remain high and so my salary is hardly enough to cover my and my mom's expenses.
My sister, on her side, she finished University last year and until now she has worked in really low paying jobs. She really needs to find a better job that can at least pay all the bills, so she decided to leave Greece and go to Denmark to get a master's degree and work there. In order to do that she found a job as a waitress to collect enough money for the first months until she finds a job in Denmark . Of course her income is so low and life in Denmark is so expensive that needs 3-4 years to collect enough money to make a new start. So, I decided to help her and offer her as much as I can but unfortunately I can not offer all the money she needs. That 's why I decided to start this funding in order to help her stand on her feet. Every help is more than welcomed and it will help my sister believe in herself again!
