A little about me and my business first.

My name is Ronel and I started a small business 4 years ago, whereby I provide obstacle courses and party entertainers for children's birthday parties and events etc. My business has really grown into a lovely little business and i now have 8 staff members working for me.

Covid-19 has obviously affected thousands of people worldwide, especially the SMME sector. As a small business owner, it has knocked my business terribly. And of course in turn, it has affected my poor staff members. As a small business relying solely on party bookings and events, we have had all our clients cancel or postpone all our bookings over the last 5 weeks, obviously due to the fact that we were firstly told we had to practice social distancing and then of course, secondly when the country was put on strict lock down. Having to refund clients, had already left a huge dent in our bank account before we even went on lock down.

So now, having no business (bookings coming in as everything is so uncertain as to whats going to happen, this for me and for my staff has been detrimental. I have overheads I can't cover at this time and staff that are unfortunately not making any money or earning any type of income either.

As the owner of the business I have tried to support my staff where I can, but not earning any income into the business myself and still having expenses to cover like rent, vehicle repayments, insurances etc it hasn't been easy and now the funds have run out.

So this is why i have decided to appeal to my community, to those who are able to and have it it their heart to assist us if you can through this financially difficult time.

Besides the business expenses , my staff especially need money to live. As they all live in townships and locations in Johannesburg, South Africa, conditions for them are not great. They are not earning any other income at this time, and I hate knowing that they (and their children) could be going without food, or not being able to cover their rent, they could be kicked out into the street. And they already live in dire conditions.

If anyone is able to donate to support us through this trying time, this would be highly appreciated. My fear is that if we don't get some kind of assistance now, in the long run, everything I have worked so hard for over the last 4 years will have been wasted and i will have to pick myself up and start all over from the very bottom.

Please note that the funds donated and raised will be utilised to cover business overheads and to cover my staff for the next 2-3 months while endure this pandemic.

May God Bless You and Your Families and Keep You All Safe. xxx

  • Hi, I have made a tiny donation of R100. I'm so sorry I can't donate anymore. I am in so much shit and cannot even afford this but feel it absolutely necessary that everybody try and do what ever they can to help.
