I have never thought I will be in such helpless situation and will be standing in front of you asking for help, but looks like its the only way to stand up on my feet and to see my loved wife and baby next to me and keep going. I am hardworking guy with big ideas and even bigger dreams. The guy with tendency to philanthropy and usually I was the first in line to donate blood, money and time to help others.
But life is such sensitive thing that even smallest action can change it completely...
I am from Europe and come to UAE, like Europeans in 1800s were immigrating to America flowing theirs dream for a better life and bigger opportunities. Everything seemed nice even when me, my wife and newborn baby were renting small room and it took me to nearly 2 hours by walk in +45 degree Celsius (113 °F) to get to the work and after back home. But we were happy - we thought that its just a slow start of new better life.
I was working a lot, making big plans, everything was moving forward, started to rent a car, we have moved to 1 bedroom apartment. And everything looked so promising until I became financial fraud victim...
That changed everything completely. I have lost all the money I had, all our family savings and all the money I could borrow from people I know. But as Bob Marley said “You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.” and surprisingly I was strong enough to kept on working hard to return all the debt so we could start everything from new. And I was surprised how many good friends I made here, whom by them self not in the best financial situation supported us without asking, so I was able on keep going.
Until now I have cleared most of the debt, but creditors keep on pushing me, even when they know that I sleep 4 hours a day and on some days don’t eat, just to have less expenses. I understand them, they can’t wait for so long. But I can’t find the way to return the money faster. I have predicted that if any of the creditors would open police case I would go to prison. So I have managed to buy plane tickets for my family and send them back to home country where they at least have roof over their heads.
And even when I have cleared most of the debt, because of all the pressure and stress I feel that I can’t last any more...
In my middle 30’s from motivated, active and handsome men I have started to feel like stressful ill old men with no energy, headache nearly every day, sometimes heart pain and lost so much weight that feel not comfortable by looking at myself in the mirror.
I believe everything in life happens for a reason and what happened to me, is to make me realize that life consists not only from work, there is more important thing - the time. No matter rich or poor you are, all what we have in this life is only time, some of us have more, some less of it and you never know how many is left until it expires. And the value of the time makes is how we are using it. By spending every evening working I have lost evening I could spend with family, and there is no way to return this evenings or add it later.. By spending every weekend working I have lost time to be spent with my parents and grandmother by seeing them on Skype, and I don't know how much theirs time has left and for the money I have made by working on weekends I cant buy additional weekends to spend with your loved ones.
In short, all this situation showed me how is valuable to spend time with your loved ones. How they are important to keep your life fulfilled. But I realized this only when it was too late. Wish I was spending more time with my family when they were near...
This situation have changed my priorities between work and family, but it didn’t changed my dreams and it didn't make me to think that all people around are bad just because one scammed me, otherwise I wasn't writing here.
I would like to ask you to give me a chance to start everything from new by donating any amount you could afford, every dollar makes a difference to me.
I need to clear my debt as soon as possible, so could return my family back and start everything from new. Only then I will be able to wake up in the morning with fresh head and keep on going to achieve my dreams and spend time with my family.
I would appreciate if after donation you could message me your name and email, and don’t hesitate to ask me for any help or support you would ever need in a future. I believe that I will stand up on my two feet, achieve my dreams and that one day you will tell everyone how you met me.
Thank you for you kindness and generosity. God bless all who contribute any amount.
