This is a very difficult, private and personal plea. My husband Angus and I are a penniless couple living in South Africa who have fallen on very hard times. We have been unable to find work due to the Affirmative Action policies of South Africa, as well as our age. I am 56 years old and Angus is 59 years old. I have been doing freelance recruitment for a year and have not earned enough to provide for the two of us. We have lost our home and have very kindly been put up by my sister for a very limited time. They are pensioners and are not in a position to house and feed us for any great length of time. Once we have to leave their home, we will have no option but to find a squatter camp to live in (see example in the gallery pics). I am a Finnish citizen and can get assistance from Finland. Our dilemma is that we do not have the funds for our passports and flights to get there. We are literally penniless. We would be eternally grateful if you could find it in your hearts to donate a small amount to help us get to Finland. I will post receipts for all expenses incurred for proof.
Thank you Carol and Angus Weir xxx
Due to the unexpected costs of getting Angus a Zimbabwean passport (having to travel to Zimbabwe personally and having to spend 4 weeks there) I have had to increase the initial amount for the funding.
