Help Zoya afford maternity leave!

My name is Zoya, I am single, a student and anxiously awaiting my first baby (a boy!) at the end of August.

I am studying architecture in Berlin, Germany where I moved 5 and a half years ago from my native Russia (Novosibirsk/St. Petersburg). As a foreign student, I do not have social rights or the same protections afforded German citizens with children. Unfortunately my family in Russia is poor, and they do not have the means to assist me. My friends in Berlin are trying to help me and collect all the necessary things for my newborn son, but I need urgent assistance to pay my (modest) rent, insurance and food for me and the baby while I care for him for the first few months. My rent plus living expenses, insurance, pampers, etc will be approximately 700 euro/month. I plan to return to work and earn a living when my baby is about 6 months old.

I desperately hope to create an atmosphere of peace and safety for the first few months for my son, so if you can please help, I’ll be grateful for even the smallest donation!

In friendship,
Zoya
