Hello, my name is Jan-Hendrik Odendaal, I am a South-African citizen waiting for my residency application to be processed in Poland.
The reason I moved to Poland from South-Africa was so that I can finally be with my Finnish spouse who lives here.
I came to Poland with one suitcase and my life's savings. I gave up a stable income at a job that I loved, my family and my friends who were a greater help to me mentally than I realised before moving.
I am unable to afford everyday living expenses anymore like groceries, toiletries and any other household expenditures.
I am unable to work in Poland legally as I don't have a work visa or residency permit.
Being in this situation has put a lot of strain on our marriage as well as my mental and physical wellbeing.
I have a lot of anxiety and depression and I can't afford medical assistance for myself.
The money raised with this fundraised will go directly to cover the basic living costs: Groceries, rent, utility bill. The money will also be used for medical bills like psychiatrists and medication if needed.
Any help will be extremely appreciated, from the bottom of my heart, and will help immensely. Even if you can just help €1, that'll make a change.
