Hello, I'm Grachelle from Philippines and I'm here to raise money for a laptop for me and my brother. We don't have money to buy a laptop for university and high school use. as my country nowadays is not in a good condition. Our country have not recover from the corona virus outbreak, lots of cases are emerging and our government mandatorily declared people to have minimal contact. So schools here have proceed to online learning to avoid the spread of the virus but as you can see, it was a very anti-poor decision because a lot of us here are can't afford laptops and internet fees for schooling. It is a very frustrating and depressing situation. I'm almost graduating and I want to graduate fast to have money and have a house for us. My parents have work but their salaries combined(36,000php/month) can't sustain us thoroughly as a result they are irritated more often than not and it affect us as a family. Much of their salary goes much on our rent(18,000 php/month), electricity, food, water expenses. It hard to bring up that I need a laptop for my studies same goes for my brother. It is hard honestly to proceed like this. I'm just thankful that I'm a scholar in our state university (University of the Philippines, Diliman)and that I have 1 sem left of free tuition (meaning I don't have to pay anything yet because the university shoulders the suppose to be expense for my education somehow it helped lessening the burden in our family) but this is not the case for my brother who have tuition and is also graduating in his high school. I have an older sister who already graduated and just recovered from mild tuberculosis 2 months ago, technically she is not yet employed and resting. Presently, now I'm using the old laptop of my dad which the battery had died long ago and for it to work you need to plug it like an appliance. Me and my brother are taking turns in using this laptop and to be honest it was stressful because there are many deadlines to meet. That's why I'm racking my brains on how to solve this problem. New year is approaching meaning new sem is coming and thinking about how it will go bad because corona virus is a bitch and has not yet leave. I don't think I can handle this problem anymore. Please help me and my family.
