We are so sorry to have to ask for help like this but we truly have no idea what else to do.
As some of you might know we sold everything back home and are currently living in Bali, Indonesia. We've been living off of our savings from everything we sold but have now run out and yes, we hate to admit this but there is no time for pretending. We need all the support we can get right now.
We've been looking at all of our options but returning home is definitely not one. No matter how difficult it is here, we know returning to South Africa and trying to start something there will be much harder. Our visas allow us to stay another 4 months here while we work everything out. We've already made a lot of progress & would definitely do this all again without any regrets. We know everyone has their own struggles and ours are no worse but please, we have nowhere else to turn to. We are praying & asking God to show us the way, giving our best every single day & continue to have faith & stay strong.
We've been offering our skills and services, reaching out with business collaboration proposals, we recently finished one with Bale Tudor which went very well but are still waiting for replies from others while looking for other income options. We have no idea where we'll be staying after Saturday night. If everyone reading this could at least give R20/R50 or more that would already help so so much. If you feel it in your heart to donate something we would be so sincerely grateful. I don't know if we deserve the help but that's up to you. We don't need much, begging feels horrible but this is our last resort. Our intentions are nothing but pure, we're just trying to live our best life.
To make it through another month and if nothing pops up before Monday, we need at least R3000 for monthly accomodation with a kitchen & free wifi. Gas is approx. R22 p/m. Food is at least R2000 p/m. Visa extensions are R2000 for our family of 3 p/m but are looking at cheaper options. We are so sorry for letting anyone down. We never meant to disappoint anyone. We truly believe that we can still make this a success.
Thank you for taking your time to read this. We really appreciate it.
