I dont know where to start.
I used to be OK. Everything was under control.
Seems like bad things are just happening one after another.
Me and wife, we have good jobs, if you add both our salaries, it is more than enough for the 2 of us.
But, both of us are supporting our own families.
We have our own bills, and we also pay for rental, bills and other fees for our parents/families.
Especially on my own parent's. In total, me and wife support 11 adults (including us both)
But the money was enough, with some savings for the future.
Last year my wife lost her job. Economy in Malaysia is bad, and the country depends heavily on oil and gas industry. My wife works in the oil & gas industry. She was let go.
Our income basically was cut to half.
We still have the same amount of expenses, but with half of the income now.
But we have savings. It was OK for a while. Hoping my wife can get a job soon.
Then, my wife got pregnant. No employer would want to hire her now.
My niece has to stop studying college and start working to make ends meet.
To make it worse, last month my sister lost her job too.
My savings are all used up.
My current situation? I just got a baby last 3 weeks. The hospital bills was quite high, as my son was warded for a few days due to jaundice. Currently my wife is staying with her parents for confinement, they are like 4 hours drive away.
My car is in a bad shape ( no maintenance as we spend the money on our family ), and recently it broke down. No money to pay for repairs. I am using a borrowed car to work now.
Car and phone, 2 things thats important for me to look for income to survive. My car is 10 years old and my phone is 5 years old.
Then today, my dad's car broke down, he needs money to repair the car, my father in law is hospitalised, due to his heart condition and my phone literally died on the way to work today.
I dont know where else to to turn to.
I need help for : fixing my car. Basically i need to change the gearbox and the suspension system.
I also need a phone. i depend heavily on my phone. Work, emails, etc. I am a salesperson. I would have to purchase a good phone so it can last me another 5 years, hopefully 10 years?
In my current situation, what if something happens to my baby? or to my father in law? i have no phone and means to be contacted.They are 4 hours drive away.
I need help to support my family expenses. One dad is sick and another needs to repair the car badly. not to forget, my newborn baby, the diapers, the formula (my wife is also doing her best to breast feed).
I just need some money to survive another month, do my job and get good income so i can survive the oncoming months.
I have never asked for donations, but this time i really dont know what else to do.
