Help Financial for Family Joyce

My name is Joyce I am from Apen Hill in Marlandy state, in early January 2020 I was pregnant to have our baby in February, but something happened on January 21, 2020 our apartment flooded, we need to stay in the family home even without structure to  another family, with a 2 year old child.
 After the incident, the condominium said that the apartment was habitable to return after the repair, when we went to check it was in a bad state, and the internal breathing was horrible.  Unable to return with young daughters.
 And with the Pandemic at its height, it complicated us even more, in relation to expenses.
 Almost at the end of February, on the 19th, I gave birth to our youngest daughter, and the apartment was still in bad shape, we stayed in the provisional hotel for a week, and the apartment was in very bad shape for a month.
 After that period we returned, the fear of trauma was horrible to stay inside that apartment, our daughter talking about whether the water would still come back, every sound of water scared her.
 After much insistence they fixed the apartment, my husband was unable to work properly with all this confusion, he works as a driver, Uber and Doordash stopped without being able to go to work solving many things that could not be resolved, the bills were coming, we had to leave where  we lived in another condominium in the month of august, even so the debts increased, because my husband got sick and got even worse, without his main income this directly affected our entire family structure, eventually i work as a nanny, but even so it is not enough.
 Currently he still works with Uber and Doordash drivers and even then it's complicated, this year of a pandemic ended up hurting our financial state.  With that, a lot of things got involved and even working from Sunday to Sunday is not enough.
 And to make our condition worse, we have 3 rents late in the current condominium, this is being difficult and exhausting.

 I wouldn't ask for your help if we could manage the finances, but unfortunately we ended up seeing that things are sinking in a sad way.

 I come to ask for your help, as a mother and wife with all my heart, to smile at our daughters so as not to feel what inside my husband and I feel is difficult, we try to continue to be as cheerful as possible and for that reason our whole family thanks every gesture of  help.

 God bless.
