Hello my name is Maris and this is my story.
Please read all of it so you could understand why I need this money.
I grew up with my mother and sister,we were poor so my grandparents helped us,they were also poor,but they helped us as much as they could.
I started working when I was 12 years old,so i could afford to go to school and help my mother to pay for rent and bills
I worked as a hod man in construction company illegal ,because I wasn't at legal working age.
So with the help of my grandparents and money I got from working at construction company I finished elementary school.
And when i got 18 years old my grandfather died from cancer and my grandmother couldn't help our family anymore
So I found a legal job in my city and went to vocational School for 4 years and got (Computer Systems Technician profession).
I worked after school from monday to friday,but I didn't have enough income to pay for my school,rent and to buy a food for me and my mother.
So I found another job In other city.
So every weekend I went 200 kilometers away to other city and worked there. Now my income was enough.
And If my sister and her boyfriend needed some help with money I helped them to. My sister only worked, her boyfriend didn't.
In the end of my last school year I met a girl,we had a couple dates and we started to like each other. And then one day she told me,:I would like to be your girlfriend" but first I have to tell you something ,:I have a 2 years old girl.
And I said,: Don't worry It's ok ,I will take care of her like my own daughter.
My girlfriend was also from a poor family,so I helped her,I paid for her school and took care of her and her little girl.
I got a better job offer so I went to another city, my girlfriend wanted to drop out from school because it was to far away from me.
I said,:no to her, you can't drop out now,it's only 2 years left till graduation. So I paid rent for her apartment,so she could finish school. And we could live together after graduation.
I visited her and her little girl every weekend. Then 1 day I got a call from her,and she said, : my little girl drowned today, she is dead.
I said to her,:it's gonna be okay, come to me. I helped her with funeral expenses.
So we lived together for 3 month's and I stand by her while she got better,then she returned to school.
And after a few weeks I told my her,:I got salary cut off by 50% so I wouldn't be able to help you as much I used to,you should try to find a job. So I got salary cut off, but still paid for my mother's apartment,my apartment and my girlfriend's, apartment and school,and also gave money for food.
I started to take loans from private companies almost every month.
And after a few months my she started to ignore my call's,and when texted her, she said I don't have a time, I'am working and i have a lot of homework at school.
Then 1 day I called her again, and a man's voice picked up,: and he said leave her alone, we are together almost for 1 year, she was with you only because you gave her money.
It was like a spit in the soul. After all what I have done for her she does this.
After few weeks I lost my job, and ended up with 8000 euros debt.
But I didn't give up,I went to UK to find a job,and found one with the help of an job agency.
I worked there for 9 months,then a health problems kicked in,and I spend a lot of money that I saved, for health care.
And after 9 months the company where I worked went to winter holidays.
After holidays I called company,and they said to me, : we don't need you anymore,we got someone else working in your place.
I asked why they didn't called me? And they said we did, :we called to your agency and told them, that we want to sign a contract with you for full time work,and they said, : that you are working somewhere else and you don't need this job anymore.
But the truth is I didn't work anywhere at that time,agency laid to them.
So I almost had no money and got kicked out from my apartment and I ended up on street.
I didn't even had a money for food, I did't eat for days,I thought that I am going to die and no one cares.
I never beg for food or money, because I am not that kind of person who asks for help.
And even If I had money for plane ticket I couldn't get anywhere because my passport was expired. And couldn't afford a new one.
Then one day my sister found me in UK on streets. She got me an ID card from embassy of Latvia,and bought me a plane ticket to home.
I moved in to my mothers apartment. And after one month she said to me, :if you don't find a job in 2 days,you can take your sh..t and leave my apartment.
It seemed that she has forgotten,that while I was In UK working, I send her 500 euros every month.So I got kicked out ,luckily my sister helped me,I moved In her apartment.
And after few weeks I found a job and place where to live. But the job was only seasonal so I started to fix people's computers and laptops.My clients usually were poor so I didn't charge much,usually they give me some food or clothes.
And in 3 years I managed to pay back all the 8000 euros that I owned to loan company.
I can't fix computers anymore because my laptop is 7 years old and can't handle the new computer software.And now I am asking for your help because I never worked an easy job. I almost never went to doctor,just worked hard to help my family.
In these years I also got in a traffic accident 2 time's. I was hit by a car once and also got into motorcycle crash. And now I have health problems and can't afford health care.
I have (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)for my left palm. Fatty degeneration for my livers,and I am not even fat,I have slim body, I don't drink and don't smoke.
Kidney Stones in my left kidney, hyperactive bladder because of spinal disk displacement and Stuck in the sciatic nerve.
I can't walk more than 2 miles,then my back starts hurting very badly. I wake up at least 20 times at night to go to toilet. At winter's if I get cold I go to wc every 5 minutes. And can't sleep on my back or side's
And I am only 24
And since I was a child I had arthritis, I spend a lot of time in hospitals in childhood. But thank god now its Dormant.
My sister can't help anymore,because she has cancer and one of her twins has asthma. It's not easy for her now .And my mother now has 2nd group disability so I am helping her to,because I have a good heart,and i don't have a hate in my heart.
I am also paying all bills,buying food and taking care of my 2 cats.
It almost feels like someone has cursed our family.
Last year I got into driving school,spend a lot of money for driving lessons and school.
And I was doing so well that I could sign in for State examination.
But my savings ended,and If I don't sign in for State examination til the end of this year,I will need to start it all over again, school and everything, because that's the law in our country.
Right now I am unemployed and my only income is unemployment benefit 200 euros in month. I can't find any job because of my health problems. And for any easy job I need drivers license which I don't have.
I can't do any job where I need to do some heavy lifting,or need to be on my feet for more than few hours.
And If I do that kind of job after few days I always end up In my bed,not being able to get up because of my back pain.
So I am asking for your help so I would be able to take care of my health and get a drivers license. So I can get a job,and start living not just survive
After I get enough money. I will post a link to videos showing you where I spend every cent of that money.
I will appreciate every euro you donate.
