My name is David and I am currently stuck in Malaysia during a movement control order. My daughter and her mom are living in Japan.
I have initiated this campaign as I have financially reached a breaking point regarding losing my job due to COVID19. I came to Malaysia for a job on-boarding with a large company, and then a few days after I arrived, Malaysia went into lockdown and the company told me they likely wouldn't hire anyone this year and canceled my position. I am now trapped in Malaysia, unemployed. As difficult as this is for me, it is more difficult for my daughter and her mom who depend on me to survive.
I am father of a beautiful daughter Iria Lynn (born 18.10.2006).
A few years ago I started a company in South East Asia when the economy was better than now, and when the oil price fell, my business went bankrupt. I had always managed to scratch my way along and keep my daughter and her mom with a roof over their heads.
I was left only with zero savings over the past few years having to pay child support even though I didn't know when I could find a new job. It's been a hard slog.
In order to do that I have had to sell my car, motorcycle, borrowed money from friends and now with COVID19, people I know can't help me more than the have.
Regretfully, with the Corona virus, my income is now non-existent and I will not be able to meet my child support obligations.
I have never tried raising money via Internet before and I have no clue if what I am typing right now is going to help or not but I am all out of options.
Please help me in seeing that my daugher and her mom are safe for at least as long as it takes me to get out of lockdown and into a part-time job.
I respectfully request your help and kindness.
When I m in a better position financially, I will pay it forward.
