Vis and Andy Jooste, both in their mid-fifties lost their jobs in 2013. Despite having plenty of experience and excellent references they could not find jobs yet. Their age, slight disabilities and local empowerment programs were some of the reasons given for not employing them.
They managed to survive by buying and selling used goods. However a transaction that went bad cost them their delivery vehicle and pretty much their livelihood since they simply can’t function without a delivery vehicle.
They now need funds urgently to buy another delivery vehicle which will allow them to start their small Business again. An amount of approximately $5000 will be more than enough to afford a decent used delivery vehicle and some capital to buy more used goods to sell.
One Dollar is all we’re asking today. Rather than asking for larger donations and involving less people we’d rather ask for less and involve more people.
They feel ashamed having to burden their family and friends but being unable to find jobs and unable to generate income they feel they now have no alternative. They ask that you understand that this is not a matter of choice but rather of necessity and that it will be temporary until (God willing) they raise enough funds to start up their Business again.
Just $1 is all they ask today. And that you share this with as many people as possible. You can make the difference now.
While they can’t repay you now, they’ll do so, if required, when on their feet again. As a token of their appreciation they’ll send you a micro recipe book with a few of their favourite family recipes. These are unusual recipes that you may not have tried before and which may become a favourite of yours after trying them.

Please donate $1 or any other amount today. It will go a long way to getting them back on their feet again.
Thank you in advance and God Bless.
