Hello, my name is Donique, I'm 18 years old (I just turned 18 in February 2021) and I currently live in an abusive home. I am a promising young adult who is struggling to make ends meet.
Since my father passed away four years ago I have been extremely depressed and suffering silently with abuse by my own mother, her son and his girlfriend. My mother has watched and allowed her son and his girlfriend to physically abuse me. I have two sisters under 16 who are also living in the abusive home. We are in dire need of help.
On March 18,2021 I had to receive stitches from the hospital because I was hit in my head twice with a wrench by her son (not my late father’s child) because I was told I can’t use any water in the house because I’m not paying any bills. This is a frequent issue, me and my sisters are told we are not allowed to use the water or electricity because we aren’t paying any bills.
Authorities have been contacted many times but the situation is not getting any better, it is only getting worse because my mother would tell lies and brainwash the officers to make it seem like I’m rebellious or uncontrollable.
I am lost I don’t know what to do, my late father left the house for me and my two sisters and we are being mistreated. I have been locked out of the house numerous times and my mother will tell my sisters not to let me in and if they do she will beat them. My own mother is trying to push me out of my father’s house.
This donation will help towards finding a place to rent for me and my sisters and buying food and necessities. It will also help towards school tuition, I have 16 CXC subjects and I have been accepted into UTECH but I have no money to pursue the degree.
I appreciate everyone who took the time out to hear my story and I am grateful for every donation.
