I came to Vietnam and I am working here as an English Teacher. It had been my dream to be an ESL Teacher so that I can touch children's lives without worrying about gang war around me.
Since the coronavirus has started in January, all schools has been closed and it doesn't look good going forward. The government is okay with having schools closed down for months until the virus is gone. This is one of their preventative methods.
We've been able to make ends meet since Jan 20th and have started to run low on cash. I didn't think it would be ethical to ask for money but as we are not getting any type of support from our employers during this tough time, I built up the courage and came here to ask for help. We don't have any further funds saved up because we just started to find our feet financially and things looked good before the outbreak.
The money that will be raised in this fundraiser would be able to stretch as far as 5 months and it would be a huge help for us whilst trying to find private students willing enough to risk their health for education. Money will not be used for anything fancy but for necessities.
If you find that you've got some money to spare, it would mean a lot if it came our way.
Thanking you in advance for your donations and we will pay it forward when we are by the means. God bless x
