PLEASE HELP SAVE MY FAMILY – GOAL R 50 000
I am 21 years old and living with my Mother, Grandmother and Brother. I completed my matric in 2014 and then went on to university. My mom has been unemployed since 2014 as well. She is constantly looking for any small job she can find to help buy food and pay bills but we’ve been mostly supported by my aunt. My Grandmother is very old and constantly needs medication and going for operations. She also needs someone to take care of her closely but since we can’t afford anyone we all have to take care of her.
My aunt was able to help pay for my Res in my first year but not the fees which now stand at R35000 for my first year alone. My aunt has been also going through tough times and was unable to help support us as her own financial situation was difficult. Luckily during second year I finally got student funding through NSFAS which covered my fees relating to university and accommodation but I will have to repay that money when I start working.
So, I completed my BCom in economics and supply chain management degree in 2017 and would work during that time and send my money back home to help support however I couldn’t. My degree has been withheld as I still have outstanding fees and as such could not apply or obtain a job or internship.
I have since also done some small promotional work and looked for a job consistently but have no luck. I just recently completed a TEFL course and see this as an opportunity to save my family from the situation we are in as I could work abroad and send them the money to hopefully let them live a better life and also pay for my brother’s fees so that he can go to university as well in the future and with no debt to his name.
It also came to our attention that my Grandmother was involved in an accident in 2015 and since she is elderly and has sight, hearing and mental problems she was the one who scraped the other person’s car. She did not tell anyone because she has dementia or shame but now a sheriff has come to inform us that they will be taking all of the furniture and electronics to cover the legal battle.
The remained of the target is to cover the costs to get me abroad such as plane ticket and so and also the first month there.
I see myself as the last hope for my family and would love any support to help with any donations.
Please help if you can, Good bless.
