My name is Mahmoud Rizk, and I am the first Hardship Companion in the world who works totally for free!
Hardship Companionship is a term that I created after working closely with people who were facing hardships that they cannot bear. Some of them visited several professional for therapy, tried medication, or even committed suicide multiple times. Others might be in a situation were they just need someone to talk to, or searching for council and guidance. It's a form of Therapy for those who are really on the line; they don't need traditional therapy or medication, just someone who truly understands and supports.
That is what I believe my purpose in life, and most of the people I support can not pay 700EGP or 500EGP per session to see a good therapist. Money should not be a barrier for anyone seeking help, and that is why I do that totally for free or with the minimum amount which they can afford. On the other hand, that does not sustain me a living. That is why I am only partially committed to this vision.
I have been supporting people for the past 3 years. 876 hours to be precise. 43 amazing people have already been graduated -that is what I call finishing therapy and being able to deal with life-, 7 people are still in the development phase.
I am asking you to support me take a Life coaching Certificate to be able to compete in the market and go online to reach more people. What I am looking for is taking therapy as a full-time job. Investing all my time to develop my skills in the field where I belong. While I promise you I will keep doing what I do for free for those who can not afford paying.
So help me, and by doing that you will be helping hundreds, maybe thousands who deserve to live a better life.
