Hi my name is George and I have been a professional chef for around a decade. I am now 26 and I’ve worked hard since I was 15. I feel like no matter how hard I work I get nowhere, I can’t escape living paycheck to paycheck and now with the current situation of the world I find myself unemployed with no prospects of being able to use my skills in the near future. I have contacted every job in Leiden and most in Amsterdam. I have worked 60+ hours a week for the passed 5 years and came very close to running myself into the ground a year or two ago. I looked like a heroin addict and had to take a sabbatical for a month. I resumed following the hiatus and haven’t stopped again since.
Now I have been plying my trade in the Netherlands and recently in Leiden I have tried and tried and tried to get a job and I will continue to, but so far to no avail. But now with the prospect of being evicted from my home failing to make the rent comes desperation. I am desperately asking for help from anybody who feels it is a worthy cause. I know I am not a poor leper child, or a dying cancer victim and I appreciate there are people in much more desperate situations. I am just asking anybody who feels they may have the spare capitol to donate, do as I need a boost to get back on my feet.
I will repay the kindnesses when I am back in a fortunate enough position to do so ten times over.
I’d like to think we live in a world where we all help each other but I’ve been slowly losing faith.
Thanks to all of you for your time reading this and if you decide to help I thank you tremendously from the bottom of my heart.
