We are a family from Greece with two children who are 4 and 14 years old. I have a diploma in computer and software multimedia support services and my wife is a qualified childcare assistant.
I also have "Tourettes Syndrome" and I have my page on Facebook "Tourettes Syndrome Greece" for given information about my syndrome to learn people and families what is that syndrome.
This is from TV show "Mila" with Tatiana Stefanidou for Star Channel here in Greece taking me interview about my tics and every day living becouse I have the Tourette Syndrome. Interview takes place in 2014.
We live in Greece with very low salaries and many economic problems. Every single month we need a minimum income of 1300 euro (1880 cad) for our basic needs, such as rent, water, heating, food, electricity etc.
Our monthly expenses bills is:
Rent: 450 Euro
Water: 25 Euro
Power: 150 euro with air condition for heat
Super market: at least 150 euro. (Normal super market expense every month for a family in Greece with 2 adults and 2 kids is 250 - 400 euro. Meat included in this price.)
Gas (Unleaded 98' 1.60 euro /litre) for car at least 150 euro.
Incurance for car at least 30 euro
Our childs English lessons : 150 euro
Older debt installments : Normally must give 250 - 300 euro every month. Now we give 80 or 150 euro and not every month.
The truth is this.
With two jobs, mine and my wife's, our monthly income from two jobs is only 800 euro (1200 cad). My monthly salary is 360 euro and my wife's monthly salary is 460 euro.
As you can understand, there aren't many prospects for our children's future. With these salaries we cannot pay our obligations every month. Many days every month we can't even afford food. My youngest son and occasionally the whole family eat from charity donations from our local church.
The cost of living here is high and with very low salaries in our jobs is very difficult to live and raise children today here.
We have a dream and we believe in that dream. Everyone deserves a second chance in life. Our second chance is to move to another country in order to be able to offer a better life for our family. . This place for us is Canada or United States of America.
We spent many months doing research to find the legal way to come to Canada and become Canadian or American citizens.
The main way is the express system or any work permit from Canada or USA.
Another way is to come to Canada or USA and open a local shop.
We have some ideas, such as a coffee shop or computer and smartphone retail shop.
With your donations you will help our family to immigrate to canada or USA successfully and open our local shop or if we found any work permit from USA / Canadian company then we accept it.
Where will your money from donation go?
Your money from your donation can help our family to:
1. Prepare collect and official translated all necessary papers for legal immigration
2. Learn our family the English language and take part in official IELTS exams in our home country to get IELTS degree
3. Give in USA or Canada official proof that we have money in our bank for immigration success and for proof that we have enough money for the first month to live there until we are open our shop (this money is Required for our immigration progress.) Family with 4 members 2 adults and 2 kids required at least 14.000 euro (20.000 CAD or 15.000 USD) in our bank accounts. Without these money our immigration progress i think will failed not passed!
4. Close all our personal pendings in our home country preparing to leave permanently from our country (Greece) and travel in our New home country legally.
5. Avoid delays for PR or work permit by come to new home country and legally open our local shop (pay expenses for legally open our new shop papers, license etc, find a home and a shop to rent, buy furnitures for our new home, taking test for new driver license in that country if my one from Greece EU didn't pass there, find a small cheap car for daily movements home work school for our child's.
You can help 2 kids and a whole family to live again and start a new life. A family with ambitions for our children. We want a place for our children to have a better future to studies, to future for their jobs to go to college or university.
