Roughly 48 hours after his disagreement with his mother went viral on social media, Chidera Jedidiah, the young man involved has now raised €1,448 on GoFundme.
Chidera and mother are said to be based in Ireland. In a Gofundme account opened for him, narrated his ordeal and how he allegedly suffered domestic abuse in the hands of his mother.
“Please help support Chidera with accommodation, living & University fees for the upcoming University semester ❤️
Recently Chidera has been placed into emergency foster care due to an abusive home situation, however when he turns 18 in October he will no longer be under care and will need to support himself through university.
Chidera hopes to study Business and law in September, he is currently seeking employment but the cost of living in Dublin/Galway is extremely high at the moment so any financial help would be greatly appreciated
I have created this go fund me on behalf of Chidera in order to ensure his own safety & well-being as he has received a lot of abuse online due to a video being publicized without his consent with regards to his home situation. If you would like to hear Chidera side of the story he has released a statement on his twitter @chxdeks
Chidera would like to express his thanks for allof the amazing support he has received thus far, recently a PayPal link has circulated that allowed a few people to help Chidera however it had to be removed due to security & GDPR issues, we acknowledge everyone who has donated money to the PayPal, all proceeds from that link will be entered into this Gofund me
Please share this go fund me if you are unable to donate ❤️ 100% of the proceedings will be used in support of Chideras university costs & living,” he said.
