Help with student rent because of COVID situation

Hello! I am a first year student studying in the Netherlands. I came here from Croatia with an idea that I will be independent as I was planning on finding a job and paying for my university fees. Thankfully, I did pay for my university fees as I was working for the summer and I have also found a job! Things were going good until the restaurants closed down and for that reason I do not have a job anymore. I have been sending job applications for a few weeks only for them to get rejected or ignored.

Now I have a problem; my parents financed my rent for the first two months because I didn't have enough money and now they can't help me anymore. Salaries in Croatia are much smaller than here and therefore my parents should send me one full monthly wage to pay off my rent. I am late for October's rent and I also have to pay my rent for November. I am hoping to find a job until the end of October but even if I find it the money I will get will not be enough for my rent.

To explain better, my one month rent is 410 EUR and I need to pay two months thus the goal of this fundraiser is 820 EUR.

I know this might seem like a weird situation but I still haven't even bought a bike which is a necessity in a country like this and I have to walk 40+ minutes to go to the university and next to that I have problems financing my books.
Last month my mum send me her last money so I could buy something to eat because I was living off 200 EUR for two months and I ran out.

Please if you can donate even 5 EUR it would be of help! I am worried I will be kicked out and if that happens I have nowhere to go since this is a whole another country and I have no one here.


If you are willing to donate but do not believe me I can send you personal information to prove that I am not lying. In that case please contact me on my email [email redacted].

Thank you!
