Hello everybody My heart broke when i heard the story about Qendrim, living in Kosovo, who struggles trying to support his whole family as the oldest son:
During the Kosovo war (1998/1999) Qendrims family lost almost everything. One year later, his mother discovered thad she was suffering from cancer. It was a shock for the whole family (his two younger sisters, his younger brother and his dad). His father, working as a self employeed taxi-driver, tried his best to manage everything, earning money to feed his family and taking his wife as often as possible to the next hospital in the capital city Prishtina, which is 500 km away from where they live. His mother is still in the battle against cancer, taking a lot of expensive medication.
Unfortunately, health-insurances do not exist in Kosovo and Qendrims father had to pay everything from his 200 Euro salary. Qendrim quit his school to work in a bakery to be able to support his parents. Even though they struggled, they managed it as a family.
One month ago, Qendrims father died suddenly and unexpected over night. They didn't even have the money to bring him to the hospital to find out why.
Qendrim, 21 years old, the oldest son and the only one able to earn money in the family, is now struggling to feed his family. He works at a bakery at night and on a farm during the day, earning 250 Euros per month, which is barely enaugh to pay his mother's medication.
We tried to bring him to Switzerland to earn some money, but unfortunately he didn't get the visa. He couldn't stay here for longer than a month anyway because his mother needs his support at home. I Would like to help Qendrim living the life of a "normal" 21-years old young man whithout all the worries he has at the moment.
Please help to raise money to support him and his family! The money should help his mother to pay for her medical bills and the whole family to find back to a happy life.
Thank you for your support.
