Hello. My name is JM and I am a family breadwinner and an informal worker.
Please help my family get through this, as we don't know where to ask for help anymore .
The quarantine might get longer than a month now that the situation gets worse, which is happening now.
From a hundred few cases in the last few days, the numbers now escalated to 500+ as of writing this now, 03/24/20.
This urged me to make a fundraiser here because I don't know what else to do as we had only earned enough to feed all of us. No rainy day funds or savings at all.
My father (54) is a retired call center representative and has multiple health conditions.
We cannot even bring him to the doctors to have him checked up and can only buy him over-the-counter medicine whenever he's feeling unwell.
Only me (22) and my mother (47) used to work until we were advised by our employers to stay at home, with my two siblings (16 & 17) are still in senior high and two (8 & 10) in elementary.
My mother and I have received our last salaries and it cannot sustain our family's needs for the next days and we do not know until when will the community quarantine will go on.
Our neighbors have evacuated long before the quarantine and went home to their provinces.
The shelves of the mart near our home are almost bare and doesn't seem to be replenished, as we seem to be the only ones stranded in our barangay.
Now we are failing to support our family and we have no one else to help us, even our impoverished relatives in the province or in Manila due to the pandemic.
Please donate atleast P50 / $1 to help us get by until the situation gets better.
Any amount will be greatly appreciated.
P.S. we need to raise enough money so that we could only go out once in a while to buy essentials, I don't want to risk my mother's health whenever she goes out to there (Me and my siblings can't go out because only the head of the family can get a quarantine pass). There was one instance when a man coughed in front of her and she caught a cold when she went home. We just hope it's nothing serious
