I am a teacher at a school in Pretoria, South Africa. My wife, our 5-month old son and I live in a flat about 17km away from my work and barely scrape through every month on my salary. My wife has lost numerous job opportunities due to her severe epilepsy always interfering with her duties. We moved to the area we are staying in a year ago in order to be closer to a government hospital during my wife's pregnancy. She got a lot better during the pregnancy with seizures actually decreasing in severity and frequency. Unfortunately a short while ago a friend of her's ex forced himself on her and raped her while I was at work the one day, which set her back a lot and also caused kidney problems. Our son is thankfully healthy but it has happened that she has had severe seizures while being home alone with him.
A short while ago our car was stolen from a parking lot while we went out to Spur near our house to celebrate my wife's upcoming birthday.
With a car I could always get back home quickly if needed but without one I don't know what we are going to do. I am under debt review and thus unable to apply for funding to help me buy another car.
I desperately need help in trying to afford another car.
