My name is Jean, and I’m looking to raise funds for my father.
He has been here in Doha for 25 years and has been out of job for 10 years now. He used to work here as an Accountant. Ten years ago, he was framed and got blamed for the lost money that his previous colleague took from the company. I was still in College by then. We didn't know what happened, he refused to tell us knowing he can still fix everything and will be able to clear his name. He took a loan from the bank (2 banks) to be able to pay the money that his company is asking from him. At this point he's still clearly thinking that by paying the money (that he did not took), everything will be okay and back to normal again. But soon as he paid the money, the Company fired him. He got another job but then when his Visa expired, the previous company refused to give him an NOC (no-objection certificate; one of the requirements to be able to transfer your sponsorship in Doha from one company to another) and this is where his situation begins to get worst. Finally he told us what happened and I decided to come here to work to be able to help him.
It took me 4years to get a decent job from a good company. Only then was I able to start helping him pay for the bank loans. The amount to be paid has exceeded to an impossible amount. I was able to settle only with the amount I am able to pay, but not enough to get the "release document" from the Travel ban from the two banks. It's still an on-going battle until now. My father is still here. I've been supporting him for more than 7 years now while also supporting my family back home (in the Philippines).
Today, my fiend helped me launched a crowdfunding campaign to help raise money to help me settle the amount needed just enough to be able to get the release papers from the banks. There's only so much I can do. Bringing him home is my #1 goal right now, he's currently very sick and has been living here without ID or valid passport. The CID knows about his case but won't put him in jail (it's a good thing yes) because they believe that the person can do something about his case if he's outside.
I’m writing to ask you to support me and my cause. Just a small donation of any amount will help me accomplish my goal.
You can make contributions on my crowdfunding page. If you can’t give, but still want to support me, please share my page with your friends and family members. With more people aware of my cause, I’ll be one step closer to reaching my goal.
Thank you for your consideration and support!
