Hello and thank you for your time.
I live in a coastal city Sharm El Sheikh where businesses are based on tourism and vacation holidays. For many years the city struggle financially due to global and domestic turbulence which results in decrease in flights to the city. Many jobs were cuts and good people lost their only income. I used to work for international hotel but I was, like many others, let go. In one day I lose my income and found myself forced to accept a small job just to provide the minimum to my family. Everything around me was so negative and people were already surrounding to the idea that there is no light at the end of the tunnel. But I refused to accept to live like that, I knew I could help them and in the process, help myself. I had a dream, I knew I can build a website to advertise the businesses in area and nearby places and bring hope back to my city. I started to work hard to achieve my dream. I was saved little money every month to put in the project and the dream started to shape up in front of my eyes. I took me 4 years in which I spent countless hours working at night on the project and in the morning on my day job. I had to borrow money to support the project and I was drained out of money.Finally, I scheduled to launch my website in 2020 but here comes the global epidemic. I took a big hit financially and emotionally. It’s ironically how life treats us sometimes. My salary went to half and I saw my dream projects sinking. I had no funds at all to continue besides even to be able to pay my debts. It was a very dark moment where I doubted everything I did and felt completely hopeless. “What you where thinking” I heard the voice in my head, “did you just sacrificed everything you have for such an idea.. a dream.”
I had to make decision, and it was to continue. For me, it was not only a dream. It was my hopes that keep me living. It was my identity and serving people is what I’m destined for. Sometimes we think we’re helping others, but in reality, we’re helping ourselves.I worked twice harder and lost part of my eyesight in the way. In Feb 11, 2021 I officially launched the website, www.pinjoor.com. I continued to fix website bugs and working on troubleshooting till this moment. My financial condition is very challenging as I need to pay my debts and allocate budget to cover the cost of the web developing. I also need to allocate budget for marketing and paid advertising till the website is popular online.
It’s hard for me to ask for help specially now and after what I went through but I know once you finished reading this, helping me will become not just another donation, but your own way to say no to nowadays negative notions. Thank you
