I live in South Africa, and we have been in complete lock-down for seven weeks now. My parents are 64 years old and all the money they have been saving for retirement is being used to pay the salary of their employees.
The government has announced that they will not reopen the economy until end of May (it still might not even happen). I am now trying to raise some money to help support my parents, they are hard workers and the government has not offered any support towards my parents. They own a boat store which I understand is not a vital activity but any job is essential if it means putting food on the table.
The funds will be used to help support my parents to be able to carry on paying their employees as well as to help build up their pensions savings again.
I really appreciate your help and support during this time. Thank you so much
