After Losing My Job to COVID, I Need Help to Care for My Uncle & to Keep My Child in School Please!
I'm a single mother taking care of my son and my uncle who raised me after my parents both passed back-to-back. To be honest, we were struggling before the pandemic, but we were still making it work. By the grace of God, I was able to care for my son and my uncle, and I've always had faith and worked hard. However, with the pandemic, it's been difficult to manage our expenses, and I find myself humbly asking for help.
I've been saving ever since I was a little kid, but all of that has been eaten up after I lost my job to the pandemic. Without my savings, and with unemployment benefits dwindling, I've run out of ways to pay our bills. I'm searching frantically for a new job, but it's impossible to find work while my son is at home and while I'm caring for my uncle who just had heart surgery in October. Right now, my biggest concern is keeping our power on while my uncle recovers and while my son attends school virtually. That's why I'm humbly requesting help with our overdue utility bill
I know that God has a plan for my family, and I have faith that we'll make it through if we get this help. I've never slacked while trying to make ends meet for my family, and I'm not about to now either. I'm confident that I can get us back to a point where we're self-sufficient, but I know that it's going to be difficult to do that without some short-term help. On behalf of my son, my uncle, and I, I want to say thank you to all who decide to help us.
