Last year Aug. 2018, our electricity meter got pulled out because we were not able to pay our electricity bill for 3 months due to bankruptcy. My mother and 7 year old sister refused to leave the house and they stayed there, enduring the darkness every night for 6 months while me and my 2 year old child was forced to temporarily move in the house of my partner for the sake of the baby's welfare. It was such a difficult time for us since my mom's earnings from her short part-time jobs and my partner's earnings are not enough to save for the outstanding balance that we need to pay for the electricity.
We are sad that we were not able to celebrate Christmas 2018 together. Last Dec. 31, 2018, my partner and I, along with our 2 year-old son, decided to come back to the house and be with my mother and little sister again and celebrate New Year's Eve with them even though we only relied on our phones' flashlight since our emergency lamps were all drained out.
I'm knocking in your hearts to help us put a life again in our house, our home, the place where I grew up, and end our dark nights. And also, to help us start anew and get back on our feet and walk away from the series of unfortunate events and the crisis that happened in our family these past years
