I'm a US citizen living in Jordan, distantly doing my MA in IR. My father had recently passed away due to COVID-19, which had left my family crippled with low finances from the medical fees - so much so that they can't afford to pay for a ticket for me to leave the country. This leaves me in a situation where I have much to pay for, yet absolutely no money to pay for any of it. Any and all financial support from relatives is out of the question as well for economic reasons, as Jordan is deep in the midst of recession.

What do I need to pay for or just account for in general? Well...

1)- I have no idea what my SSN is; it had been lost, and I need it to fill out a FAFSA form in due time to continue my studies (medium priority but will become high once I've done my IELTS).

2)- An IELTS exam, as I had not had my education in countries where English is the first language, which I need in order to even apply for a PhD (high priority; urgent).

3)- Pay the application fee for my PhD application (medium priority).

4)- Renew my passport by next year, as I am a year away from the passport expiring (this is the least important of the bunch, considering I can do this easily once I'm in the US).

5)- Do not have a bank account (high priority but I can find an alternative approach).

6)- Require a new computer; my current one is a Lenovo model from 2013 with a screen that is broken from the back (as such, I cannot fold the laptop) and a halfway functioning laptop charger from Turkey. This is one of the harder things to deal with, as I also have a hard drive with around 3.6 TB of information on it that I had had for 6 years, so it goes without saying - both for reasons involving interacting with security as well as not wanting to rely on lady luck with hard drive preservation - that it's not the best situation to be in (DONE).

7)- New as well as more bags, for when I eventually move out of the house I'm currently in entirely (medium, will eventually become high).

8)- A plane ticket to even leave the country (medium, will eventually become high).

I had already tried to contact the US Embassy for assistance; they had declined any and all offers for help due to the embassy not being capable of assisting expat citizens with financial affairs.

At the moment, my only means of receiving money is via my Paypal account, which is unattached to any bank account - or private sending via Western Union.

In the unlikely situation that this somehow gets funded, any funds in excess will go to making sure I have a place to sleep when arriving in the US, and helping me pay off rent until I can start my prospective PhD program in September 2022.

I apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for reading.

General update #01

Update posted by Suheil Yassin at 02:21 am

Good news: I have received the money, sent it to a friend who bought me a laptop (see below for the receipt) and will eventually pay for both my IELTS exam and application fee, alongside having some money left for expenses like sending the SSN form down the line. Of. . . . .
