My name is Valentino, I am originally from Sicily but currently living in London.
I grew up in a family that was not really a family, With an abusive father against my mother who got drunk every day. The memory of my childhood is my father hitting my mother every night before going to sleep.
My mother always tried to tackle him but never succeeded being alone and not having enough money to raise her children.
I remember one night when I was 18 years old and my mother was with her mouth bleeding, screaming like a desperate and every time she was screaming he was hitting more and more...
That night I decided to confront him and run away with my mother elsewhere.
After complicated situations we found a small house and a job and we were happy.
After 3 years he came back showing himself as another person, a good person.
He's always been the only man for my mother and when He showed her that he was different, he was better she decided to get back with him. She thought that maybe we could have a better life all together but she was wrong and also scared and in Love... Stupid love...
We went back with him, and for the first few months he was fine until he began again to behave as he did in the past. Same story, alcoholic, violent...
I was tired of it and decided to get away from all the situation, I was angry with everyone and I was wasting my time with them. I wanted a new life, a better future, so I decided to come to London. learning a new language, work and think about my future.
Now after years finally my mother decided and had the courage to get away from him and report him to the police.
Now I would like to help the woman who gave me birth to create her new life and a better future for her.
All she needs is some money to find a House and put a bed inside and pay all the initial expenses.
As everyone knows there are many expenses to deal with and I can't cover all of it... I am working hard in here but the money are not enough to pay an upfront rent and the general expense to cover at the beginning.
What I'm asking is a minimum contribution to helping her find a home and give her the strength to move on.
NB. I know the description is not clear and short. I could go into more details but for that I would need an entire book so i preferred to be short and let you understand what my goal is.
Thank you very much.
