This is really our last resort. We are in a desperate situation and need assistance.
My name is Matthew Haw. In November 2015 I came to Malaysia to be with my girlfriend and now wife Kristeen. We were married in 2016 and later that year we gave birth to a baby boy named Jonathan. At this time everything was fine. Things would later change into a very real nightmare.
Kristeen parents are very bad alcoholics. They drink and fight every night and in a couple of incidents her father has threatened to have me and my son killed. I was told if I ever leave here and go back alone my son would be sold or killed.
The place we are living in is an abandoned bus graveyard. With wood walls and a metal tin roof. We have no air conditioning so basically its pushing 130° inside the house. Water here in Malaysia is not drinkable and we must buy bottled water. In total there are 20 people in this house.
Cruelty to animals also takes place here. Dogs are poisoned and abused every day. There is drug use taking place here and the hot and dry conditions are making my child sick all the time.
My wife has lost her job due to the fact we have one car and basically her father controls it demanding my wife drive him everywhere. He would constantly call her work demanding rides somewhere knowing that she is working. He would say he doesn't care if she gets fired. Her job is to be his driver.
Our finances have depleted and we are struggling to survive. Sometimes we dont eat. Our 2 year old eats a lot of rice some days because that is all we have.
I have a job offer in the USA and wife and child already have USA visas. Basically we need airfare to leave this horrible place. I have been repeatedly denied work stamp here because now they are saying I'm too old( 46 years old). I need to get my family out of here.
I will not leave them behind. If I left first i know in my heart something would happen and i would never see them again. We just need airfare out of here.
I am even willing to pay back people if need be. I'm not asking for a handout just a helping hand.
If you cant help please share with anyone who you think can help. God bless you in advance.
