Mr A has been rehomed as an emergency due to being a victim of domestic abuse which was both physical, financial and psychological from other members of his family. The abuse was so bad that he has left without any items of clothing or any furniture. He is afraid of what may happen should he return to collect anything. We are assisting with furniture but he literally has no clothing other than what he is wearing. We ask for assistance with a change of clothing, sleepwear, underwear and shoes.
As a Christians Against Poverty client this lady is working hard to address problems within her family that have lead to significant debt. Managing a household and working full time is a considerable challenge and resolving the historic debt through a bankruptcy will greatly ease the burden. She is saving up the majority of the fee but this application will provide an invaluable contribution towards the overall cost of £680 and help get her over the line.
This client came to us feeling extremely stressed with their financial situation. They had been in £5,000 worth of debt over the past few years and finally 6 months ago they managed to pay it off. However due to an unexpected bill they are fully back into their overdraft. This has brought back stress and anxiety and with a large amount of interest they cannot see the end. This support would allow them to pay a lump some and get their finances in order, bringing some peace and hope to them.
This is the second time posting for a fridge for this family due to them moving house and needing a bigger one now. (The original donation will be added to this one.) They have had an extremely difficult time so we are hoping this new move will enable them to settle well and the 3 children and the grandson will benefit from some good meals. The mum suffers with her mental health so the older children often need to step into a caring role to help out with younger two.
