Family of 5 in Cambodia need help ASAP!

A mother and three children in Cambodia need help ASAP!

I John Martinson aka "Robo" am their father and sole provider. Unfortunately on November 13th, 2019 I lost my job due to budgetary cuts.  Like most people I live paycheck to paycheck so this is a serious emergency.

If you know of anyone who is hiring remote Information Technology contract workers please let me know.

With your kindness and generosity the three children and their mother  and I will have a place to live and food to eat. The three children will also  be able to go to school.

I am doing everything possible to find an Information Technology remote work at home job which is the only way I can support my family of five in Cambodia. I cannot get a job by relocating back to the USA because I have no place to live and no money to fly there. Abandoning my three children and wife is not an option.

The remote job I was laid off from  took me eight months to acquire. I expect that it will take several months to find another remote job. So I am trying to raise six months of living expenses for a family of five to be able to survive until I am earning an income again. To make matters worse Cambodia has been hit by hyper inflation due to the Chinese buying up almost the entire country. Rent & food costs have more than quintupled since 2017.

Anything you can give will help . 

Thank you so very much!

Warmest regards,

John Martinson aka "Robo"
