Hi there 😊 My name is Ashleigh.
Can you help me?
Due to the strict lockdown measures South Africa has implemented due to the Covid-19 pandemic I have lost my job (hopefully only temporarily) working in the tourism industry (wildlife related) and as long as our borders remain closed to foreigners I will not be receiving any form of income.
After 10yrs of working in the bush I've had to move back to the city - to my childhood home with the folks (both retired) - they are keeping a roof over my head & food in my belly in exchange for me doing house-work & other household-maintenance.
I'm in the process of applying for relief from the government (UIF/TERS) but it doesn't look promising due to the extreme backlog of applications..
However, this City life is crushing my spirit & I am now desperate enough to get back to my true home, the lowveld (greater Hoedspruit) to have created this page.
1) I need to raise enough money for fuel for my vehicle (and car insurance bills) to make the trip.
2) I need money for rent & other costs of living untill I can return to work
Any extra funds raised will go to the following:
- Winter Clothing
- Medical Aid & Medical Bills
- Extra fuel & monthly Vehicle Insurance
- Cellphone Bills
Pls help get this wildling back to her beloved bush!!
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
Thank you & keep safe.
