I am Joycelyn Catalig, 57 years old. Currently here in the Philippines. The reason why I signed up here in GoGetFunding is because I am no longer working and have been sick for the past 15 years of my life. I used to provide to my family as a single mom to all my 4 children before I had a stroke and was diagnosed with Diabetes. Ever since, my children were forced to work earlier, so they can provide for my medication and all of our expenses in the house. Up until now, they make sure that I am being checked up regularly, even when that means they all have to sacrifice just to meet my needs. I am so lucky and grateful to have my kids. Truly, they are my biggest accomplishment and gift from God.
For the longest time, most of their salaries go to my medication and our house rental. With this I always day dream of getting a house before I leave them. I will be in much peace if I know that I can leave them with something and that if anything goes wrong, I will securely think that they have a place to run to - even if I am no longer with them. And the thought of them having a place they have in common will really put me at ease.
I am thinking of raising a substantial amount to be able to buy our dream house. I know they can work on the monthly amortization of it. It's really a challenge to raise a big chunk of money when my kids' monthly income are already allotted to certain expenses we have. I have never thought of loaning a big amount to banks or anyone as I know this will burden them in the end.
This is a mother's supplication so she can at least provide and give back
something in return to her kids for taking care of her unconditionally.
I will never know how it feels like to live in a place we call our own - but because of your generous heart, this means I still stand a chance to fulfill my dreams for my family in the future and who know it's just around the corner.
Thank you in advance for all your help. From the bottom of my grateful heart, may He bless you a thousand more fold!
From a mom who will never stop dreaming,
