Nice to meet you! My name is Jocelyn de la Cruz and I live in Manila, Philippines.
I would like to raise funds to pay the school fees of my 8 years old cousin Sofia! I hope you can help me!
When my mother got pregnant on me my father left the family and disappeared.
My mother was unemployed, but we could stay at my uncle's house when he was single. During that time my uncle supported me and my mum and paid for my school fees.
Currently, my uncle is going through a bad financial situation and he can't afford her own daughter's education.
Now, my uncle is taking care of his family and he is struggling to pay all the expenses.
My uncle is working on a sugar cane farm and has a low monthly income. He can pay for the family's living expenses but not for the tuition fee of his 8 year old daughter.
I think that it would be a nice way to give back everything he did for me if I manage to help him with my cousin's school fees!
Working as a house keeper I just got a salary of $70.
I also try to send money to my mother every month so I just could save around $200.
I need your help to pay Sofia's school expenses!
If possible, I would like to raise $900 that will be only use to pay my cousin's education. I will use my savings too!
If I receive support, I will give the total amount to my uncle, so he can administrate it to pay the school.
It would be really nice to see my uncle spot worrying about the school and also knowing that I'm doing for him what he did for me in the past. In the meanwhile, I will try to find a better job. In case I can't collect enough funds I think I will have to go abroad to work because economy in my country is really bad now.
Thank you very much in advance for your support!
