I am Zaid . I am 27years old and by the special grace of God, I will become a father as I am expecting my wife to put to bed soonest.
I am the first child of parents with an average source of income. Growing up under them was indeed a blessing because of the level of discipline and moral virtues that they were able to inculcate in me and my siblings. These virtues have been part of the principles that keep pushing me at difficult times.
As a child who saw the early part of their marital life, I have always wished to make them proud because they will go to any length to ensure that they provided for us even if it means that they would go for days without eating.
And one thing about them is that in my 27 years, I haven’t seen them exchange any banter. They do all that they did for us with love and happiness.
My parents weren’t literate, but they made sure that I and my siblings were sent to school.
But when the burden was much on them that they couldn’t afford to pay for our school fees, though I was already in the university but as the family first born, I withdrew from school to allow for the training of my younger ones.
Life was tough for the family, but like the saying, “when going gets tough, the tough gets going,” I engaged in all manner of menial jobs to assist my parents put food on the family’s table and to also pay for my sibling’s school fees.
I was however, lucky to secure a white-collar job and with the salary I earn, I have been able to ensure that the family keeps going. My siblings are now in the university and my parents are ageing too.
Initially, I was scared but I was encouraged by my parents to look for a partner since I am approaching my thirties. Thankfully, I recently met and married a woman who accepted me the way I am; not minding my family background after meeting her in 2015.
While the size of the family is increasing, my monthly meager salary can no longer meet the needs of the family, forcing me to work extra hours, but the money finishes in 10days.
I am in a dire financial help as I am facing being evicted from my apartment with my wife who is five months pregnant.
Efforts to secure loan to offset this bill have been fruitless and I can’t hold it watching my wife being homeless in the midst of pregnancy associated stress.
Please, I am appealing for financial assistance from you. I need $15,000 to offset my annual house rent ($500 a month), my wife’s medical bills and some other family needs.
I am here because I don’t know where else to go and knowing that my story will touch you to come to my aid. I am and have been an industrious person all the days of my life and see this as a stage that will come and go.
I have promised my wife to be that loving husband that will stand by her and to be a responsible father of the child/children that God is going to bless us with.
Yes, the burden is too much on me, but I can’t afford to watch my aged parents, siblings and innocent wife groan.
Please, find a place in your heart to save my family at this trying time. We will be grateful that you did come to our rescue and in our prayers, pray that you prosper and never experience lack.
Thanks in anticipation to your kind donations.
We love you, but God who rewards and provides our daily needs loves you more.
I am Zaid
