    Hello and welcome.. sorry you are in trouble ..but this site is not for giving/ lending money..I understand your predicament but we can only offer moral support..perhaps seek the advice of a financial counsellor
    Good luck

    Hello @Surya Davor

    Its Calvin, I'm one of the facilitators here on the forums.
    I understand right now things have been quite difficult for you.
    The forums is a space where you can share your thoughts and experiences and to recieve some support/advice from other members who may have similar experiences to yourself. Unfortunatly the forums isn't a place to obtain money from anyone.
    As @pamela has suggested, you can seek out a financial counsellor by calling the helpline on 1800 858 858

    Financial counsellors can give you some advice and guidance on managing debts etc. Also seeing a gambling counsellor can be quite helpful.

    Kind regards,

    Calvin.
