Some of you know that I am in Portugal since 4 months ago.
I am still in a process of getting residency documents, which depending on the government being very slow with the services for forigners called SEF– since I came to make the form of temporary residency from here. Some people says it takes from 6 months to an year.
Just now in the first week of march I had a regular job-contract in hands when the lockdown took place, and I lost the job.
Envisioning the period of quarantine, I started looking for volunteer opportunities as a way to pass through this period safely.
Unfortunately all applications for volunteering were closed duo to the corona crisis, but still I insisted to find one, and had found one positive answer, which I accepted in the mood of financial urgency.
The place didn't even have the basic conditions to receive someone, in a very small town of weirdos in south of Algarve, but still I tried to stay and test regardless of my instincts and confusion with the lockdown or where to go or stay.
On the third day I started getting strong symptoms of cold and allergy, where in which on the 5th day I decided to leave duo to the symptoms getting worst.
Luckily, I found a hostel in Lagos that was still accepting guests who were in transition for placement or to leave the country.
While being there, I started feeling a strong pain in my lungs, which was weird and never felt before, and strong as I could not believe.
I started to suspect I might had been infected with corona, and became more confused about what to do, but given the idea of not having means to help my self, I jumped into another volunteering application that would like to host me, and that I believed “I was lucky” that It has appeared.
I didn't have a better idea than to accept the first option that presented itself.
Getting there, I immediately saw the conditions were as terrible as the previous one (maybe not as bad). Due to humidity and dark ambiance, my health got worse after a week of being there.
It was very surprising to pass through such experiences.
I decided to leave and take a chance on asking for help and take care of my health and reach out to friends and find a means to take care of myself. Find some place to breathe and relax a bit, since all these months had been infused with great survival stress.
I had looked for a room for rent during a week in this area, Algarve. The rate of prices are very low now during quarantine, so it is costing the same as a shared bedroom of a hostel.
I will need your support to recover from the cold and the strong pain I was feeling in the lungs for a week, hopefully recover.
I had been sleeping for about 4 days many hours a day now, feeling somehow better, still with the allergy.
Given the circumstance, and in order to prevent what can become worse, I’m doing this fundraiser.
The money is meant to pay for room and food, and is urgently needed.
I am sick and need now to basically rest and recover, and for that I need your help.
Any small amount is of help.
Wishing you love and peace, in a world struggling to find both.
