US$2,752.00Donated So Far
The time has come for me to make the most serious appeal of my life. I'm going to be as frank and straight up as I can. I need to raise money and I need to raise a lot. Calm is slowly being restored to South Africa, but the province of KwaZulu-Natal is in ruins.
Our supply chain was completely destroyed and it will take time for that system to be re-established. Those of you who know me will be well aware of how hard I've tried to provide an honest account of the riots in my community and now I need help to secure my existence as much as I can.
This is not a gentle situation and so I will not use gentle words. The damage done throughout KZN is on a scale that even I as a hardened, born-and-bred South African have been traumatised by. As a white man with quadriplegic cerebral palsy, I already had very limited employment opportunities and now, none exist at all.
This is not an attempt to profit from chaos, it is simply a reality that if I don't get a significant amount of help from those outside South Africa with stronger currencies, my living situation could quickly become unsustainable. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

This campaign has been dormant for a while because I have been able to get by and don't want to ask for money without proper cause. However, my laptop recently gave up the ghost and without it, I can't do anything to earn a living. It will either need to

If I'm asking you to contribute materially to my crowdfunding campaign, then you have a right to know where the money is going. The first major thing I'm doing is helping to pay for critical repairs to my cousin's car. He has acted as my primary caregiver for over a. . . . .
