I'm not here for designer bags or shoes or to fund any sort of luxuries. I'm here because I am in serious trouble and I need your help to get out of it! :-(
My life is an absolute mess right now- I am jobless, almost homeless and I barely have enough money to get through the week. Life has dealt me a cruel blow and I need some helping hands to get out of this pit that I'm in. I believe in the kindness of humanity and I believe that God will see me through this with your help.
Six years ago, I came to Dubai with big dreams and determined to create a better future for myself. I was a flight attendant, travelling the world with one of the world's leading airlines and living life to the full....but a year ago my life began a downward spiral. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease which causes pain and inflammation of the joints. Even though the pain was not severe, I was unable to fly for a period of six months after my diagnosis. I was then fired due to the unpredictability and intensity of my flare ups. I accepted my notice, however I was told to pay no amount of Dhs20,000 before the company could cancel my visa due to "sick days" and an accommodation allowance that I was receiving at the time. Unfortunately I did not and do not have enough money to pay that amount so I am currently blacklisted in the UAE and unable to get another job. I will need to cancel my visa with my previous employer before I can sign a contract with a new company. This has lead to other financial woes. Three years ago, I too a personal loan to pay off a some student loans that I had against my name, not knowing that this is what my life would look like three years down the line. Due to my current situation, I have been unable to pay my loan installmets so I owe the bank about Dhs90,000 because of all the interest that has built up. I am unable to leave the country because of all the outstanding bills against my name nor am I able to find another job until I am able to pay the the Dhs20,000 to my previous employer in order to cancel my visa with them.
I do no come from a wealthy family, therefore my family is unable to help me to settle my debt. Up until now, my only goal was to survive, hoping for a miracle of some kind. Maybe that was a bit delusional. Now, I ask for your help as I am in a desperate situation. As of 20 April, I will be homeless as the lease on my apartment ends and I have nowhere to go nor do I have the money to rent another place.
I have obviously made some terribleness choices which I deeply regret...but all I want is a second chance at life and I promise not to mess it up. If you're able to help me with accommodation or a loan to pay of my debt or part of it, please go ahead and send me a message or a donation on this site. Every cent counts and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and generosity.
