I have always, since a little girl, have the dream to travel through Europe. But there was never money to travel. My parents could not afford it and neither my husband when I got married. I had 4 children to raise and later became a single parent and had to suffer to make ends meet. Living in South Africa, my children and myself, when they were grown, could not find decent jobs. Up to now, we had to live from hand to mouth and day to day. I never even owned a house and still don't own a house, nor a car. I am now 61 years old and fairly healthy and only earns an old age pension from the government of R1 600 per month, which is far below the cost of living and if you know the history of SA, this pension may not even be secure, but while in SA, my kids take care of me as well as they can. But they told me they wish that they can make my dream come true. I then realised that I am not getting younger and I should follow my dream while I still can. I want to go to Europe. I also have a grandson of 17 years old who I have not seen 6 months before his father (my son) was murdered in 2002. He lives somewhere in Serbia and I would like to go and look him up and see him once again before I am too old to travel. Well, for all this, I need to raise at least R70 000 (ZAR) which is about 7000 USD or 6000 Euro. That is the cost for my flight, visa, travel insurance and daily living cost for the duration of my stay there. I was already offered free accommodation in various places for a period of 3 months. So I decided to try and raise funds in this way, and hope that there are people out there with good hearts to help my dream come true. Thank you for your time.
