Please help us raise urgent funds to rebuild our home and lives.
We face eviction when our tenancy expires in October 2020 because our landlord believes she can get a higher rent because of the changes we made to the house. When we moved 3 years ago, the yard was an empty concrete space (pic) but we put our hearts and souls into turning it into a beautiful garden and home.
We created our garden in which we grow vegetables for our own consumption with almost no money. Everything was gathered from around our village.
We have been told many times by the owner that she wants us to move. We were devastated but we have been setting aside money for that purpose.
However, we hit a bad patch last year and had to use our savings. The COVID-19 outbreak has practically depleted everything we have set aside.
We are embarrassed but we have no choice but to swallow our pride and ask for your help because time is short and the work situation is still bad.
It is important to have a home and we hope you can help us rebuild our lives again.
Finding another place to rent is not easy because we have 4 cats and 19 chickens which we rear for eggs, not for their meat. :-) During our 6 years here, it was difficult finding landlords who allowed cats, and when we did, we faced issues with neighbors. Being foreigners, we want to avoid any problems with the locals.
As always, we prayed and God has responded. We have found a small piece of land which is below market value because it is in a remote and secluded area. Kinda scary not to have next door neighbors and passersby but it's cheaper than buying a house in the village.
We will save on building costs by building our simple home ourselves with help from a few friends, using mainly natural and recycled materials.
It should not cost more than $16,000 and we are doing all we can to earn and save. Because of the dire economic situation, we will barely be able to save $1,000 in the next 3 months. And so, we humbly ask for your help to raise the difference because time is running out.
Your kind generosity will make a huge difference in our lives. Please also help by sharing our link and letting your friends know about your kindness. We appreciate all the help we can get.
You may contribute with your credit or debit card via the PayPal link. It is perfectly secure.
No words can express our sincere gratitude. We can only promise that we will do our part to help those in need.
Peace & love,
Kenneth and Hana
P.S. We live in Thailand but used a location in the U.S. to save 12% on processing fees.
