Because of the Corona virus we are in a very bad and difficult situation and we need your help please!
Hello, I am Skye and I am David's friend and special companion.
We are in Georgia, a very interesting country on the Black Sea, bordering Turkey and Russia. I was born there in August last year so nearly a year old.

This is David and he thinks he is in charge of me...if only he knew what he let himself into when he got me😼😻
He comes from South Africa, the country right at the bottom of Africa.

As you can see I feel very shy and embarrassed to be asking for your help but we are in a very bad and difficult situation and we need your urgent help please!
We are asking for your contribution towards $600 dollars (US)
We know that asking you to contribute in US dollars is asking a lot especially for people in South Africa and a lot of other places but unfortunately the dollar is the most convenient for us here in Georgia. David is also aware that most everyone have been impacted by the pandemic and may self be struggling.
Why, we are asking for any contribution without a minimum amount set. Allowing you to contribute whatever you are able to, so we are begging you to please open you heart and wallet to our plight. Please, we would not be asking if there was an alternative and our situation not so dire.
It is for living expenses, rent, medicine and other basic stuff.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic we are stranded in Georgia and due to the closure of borders, travel restrictions extended to end of July this year and general difficulty with traveling, we are unable to leave to go to South Africa for example.
This extended stay was unplanned and now the funds have run out which also makes purchasing travel tickets near impossible. On top of that the lady in whose flat we are staying has now lost her job because of the pandemic and the rent we have to pay her is currently her only income. So she told us to get out of the flat if we cannot pay her. What will we do, where will we go?
David cannot get work in Georgia due to visa restrictions so cannot earn any income that way and getting online work for his skillset and language barriers is not so easy but he has been trying and is not giving up.
So as you can see we are in a very bad and difficult situation and we need your urgent help! Please contribute towards the fund. We are very thankful for any little bit of money that is contributed.
All my love Skye
