Many of you know that I don't have a proper home, that I have moved from place to place for decades. Even in Lahore, where I have lived for almost 20 years, I have had too many addresses. And many bad apartments because I haven't been able to make the price leap.
My current building is going to be destroyed in December. My landlord agreed to let me out of my contract early so, rather than just sitting here and waiting, I started the search for a new place. And I found the place where I could be happy for ever so long, so I went to the landlord and said I wanted to leave . . . and then he reminded me that I have to find someone to take this apartment in my place.
Without going into details, I have to tell you that the apartment that I want to leave is not worth what I pay for it, the chances of finding someone are small; before I lose the other apartment which i wanted to buy with your help. This means that I am going to be stuck in this place until December, and my choices of decent housing are going to be drastically reduced.
Even if I lose the apartment I want and have to find another one, I am in the same situation.
I have searched all of my possibilities in the time I have to work with, and I figure the only way to save this situation is to raise the money to guarantee the rent here for the rest of the contract (five months) while I this apartment in pictures.
I know that everyone is strained right now, and I am choking on my pride--especially because I have asked for money before--but please, I want a home, and the apartment that I want, could be it.
It will take a long time, but if you only want to loan me the money, I will find a way to pay it back, just make a donation I will be very thankful to you.
Thank you for reading.
