Greetings! My name is Steven Bryson, I am a 22 years old Venezuelan, currently studying in an exchange studies program in Indonesia for a year on a scholarship.
My scholarship from Darmasiswa organization covers all of my basic expenses while I am here, but does not cover airfare. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, I have been stranded in Indonesia without the program's support. I have not been able to get a response about my return ticket with the company who helped me fund my arrival flight. I also contacted my embassy and they informed me that they do not have the ability to send me back on any type of repatriation flight.
My family and I do not have the economic capacity to pay for the return ticket due to the crisis that Venezuela is currently suffering where most people, including my family, have a salary of approximately 2$ a month (it is hard to believe but it is true).
So I am in the painful situation of having to ask for your help to pay for my return ticket to Venezuela since my student visa will expire on August 28, I really do not want to be trapped in another country, powerless and moneyless, while also being on the wrong side of the law.
The ticket has an approximate cost of 2000€, so any kind of help is welcome (every little bit counts) and I will be so grateful for your kind-hearted generosity. Thank you very much in advance.
This fundraiser is organized by my friend Isaac.
