My name is Shara, I'm 24 and a recent graduate of the University of the Philippines Diliman. Due to the pandemic, I've had a hard time getting employed, so I worked as a freelance content writer.
Recently, an opportunity to work in Europe was opened and fortunately, I was granted a position. Currently, I am still waiting to receive my city assignment, so I've been accepting all the projects I could and also looking for part-time work on top of it. However, with my humble earnings as a writer, I can only cover for document processing (medical, visa), flight, and other pre-departure preparations. I've estimated the pre-departure costs to be around P45,000 to P50,000 (€775 - €862), while a month's living expenses could amount to up to €600 - €1000. We were told to prepare at least €2,000 for living and operational costs for the whole month while we wait for our compensation and unfortunately, I don't think I could gather that much money with the time I have as I will be leaving in late September.
I opened this fundraiser in hopes that people could help me live for a whole month until we get paid. Thank you very much for reading through this, and any amount would be of great help!
