I am Pia Cervero. I set up this account for my hardworking friend, Jennifer Galvez Sy or "Ate Jen", who is knocking on your kind hearts for any financial assistance.
Ate Jen has been working as a domestic helper in and out of the country for 15 years now. Currently, she is staying in Metro Manila, Philippines to support her 2 elderly parents and 7 children in the province. They are her life. Every cent she earns is spent on them, though most days money is still scarce. They feel this especially when emergencies strike. In fact, her income for December went to both her father and kid's hospital and medication bills. Debts are piling and she is getting desperate; this is the only place we can think of to ask for help.
Donated funds will mainly go to debt payments and household bills.
I can't say that her life is any different from that of millions of Filipinos. She needs to work, even if it means being separated from her family. However, I know Ate Jen as someone who will do anything to write a different story for the people she loves and treasures most in this world.
Ate Jen is proud of her job. People recognize helpers like her as unsung heroes, but this time, it's her turn to humbly ask for help. A little assistance would truly go a long way.
Thank you in advance and God bless!
P.S. To those asking, ate Jen's bank account details are as follows:
