Help me fund my DNA test to apply for British Citizenship

Help me fund my DNA test to apply for British Citizenship

Personal message

Hey guys! So some of you are aware that I was adopted and found my biological parents a couple of years ago. Since then I have found out that due to my biological father's status as a British citizen, I am also eligible to apply to become a citizen. This would open many doors for me.

Unfortunately due to the fact that my biological mother did not disclose my biological father's name for my birth certificate, this puts the burden on m to prove his paternity. I have to use a Lab accredited by the UK government for this testing. This comes at a cost of £475. This includes the testing fee of £365 and postage of the Kit to South Africa at £110.

My doctor has agreed to take the swab for me and my biological father will pay for his own swab collection in Liverpool. Here's where you guys come in. I would like to please ask your help in getting these tests done. It would mean the world to me if you could donate the smallest amount you can afford and I will be eternally grateful for the opportunity you have afforded me. This could mean better opportunities for tertiary education and job prospects all over Europe which has always been my dream. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and consider this!

Wow! What an incredible response thus far. I am so overwhelmed by the generous donations. We are almost halfway to the goal! 

UPDATE: (2018/09/25)

Hello everyone!

It is with great joy that I update you about the current status of my DNA test. My swabs were collected from me last week Tuesday (2018/09/18) and was delivered to the DNA test centre this morning at 10:30 in London! My biological father's swabs were also taken this morning and should arrive in London in the next two days. I am not sure when we can expect the test results yet, but I will be sure to keep everyone updated. Thank you again for those who supported my campaign! I still can't believe how close we got to the goal. I am eternally grateful to those who made this dream a reality after many years of struggling to get the money together.


Update: (2018/10/07)

It is with great joy that I announce that the DNA tests have been finalized and I am now officially eligible to apply for British Citizenship without any doubt. The test came back confirming waht we have known since I found my biological parents. This opens many doors for me and I will be consulting an immigration agency on the way forward regarding my citizenship application. Without your donations this dream could not have been made possible. I am eternally grateful for the kindness and generosity you have shows me. I will update you on the progress of my citizenship application in the near future.
