My family and I are in serious need of a new start

Hi everyone. I've been put in an extremely difficult position where I feel as if I have no other option but to ask for help. I've never felt comfortable asking anyone for donations and I've been very patient with the world but I just feel like at this point, I have to. My family and I have been dealing with a lot of stress throughout the years. My mother is the only one employed in our family and my father is an unemployed alcoholic. I'm an aspiring artist but I feel completely powerless living in Serbia, where one of my only options for work are positions which would pay me roughly $300 per MONTH. That is in no way enough money for me to afford to live my own life, get the equipment I need to succeed and be independent. I’m also very passionate about photography and I’ve never been able to afford a camera. My mom has recently been diagnosed with a serious heart problem. Her heart is extremely weak and damaged. She’s our only source of income and she’s been struggling immensely. I feel enormous pain seeing her deal with so much to the point where her life is at risk. On top of everything, her job position is shaky, as most jobs are in Serbia. This level of stress could cause even more serious damage to my mother. I am pleading for help! I am in serious need of a financial push to help my family and I get back on our feet. We really need this. I would use this money to help pay all the debts my family is dealing with, get a camera, a few other equipment which would allow me to become independent and give me a chance of a better life and help my mother in every way that I can. I desperately need that to be able to work my way out of this incredibly corrupt country. Any and all help will be deeply appreciated and I don’t think I’d be able to find enough ways to thank you guys. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to hear my story.
