In Kuwait without a Job

Hi everyone,

My name is Jon, and I recently lost my job due to the global pandemic.  I'm originally from the United States, California to be exact.  I came to Kuwait in December of 2019 for a job opportunity to work in a restaurant.  Things were going well, then the Corona Virus came to Kuwait, and by mid-March everything was shut down.  At the beginning of April I was told by the company that I was being laid off due to the economic conditions.  I'm currently still stuck in Kuwait as I await for the country to reopen, so that I can leave.

I have not been paid since January !  The company that I worked for here in Kuwait has a horrible record of paying their employees very late !  We have repeatedly asked for our February and March salaries, yet the company has repeatedly claimed to not have any money, a claim which none of us believe !  

I have a wife, young daughter and mother-in-law and father-in-law that rely upon my support, therefore I started this campaign as a way to help myself and my family get through these rough times.  I have been applying to and will continue to apply for jobs, however the market as we all know is very tough right now.  

Thank you in advance for any and all help, and God Bless !!
