My name is Annelize Viljoen - 44 years old from Pierre van Ryneveld, Pretoria. I am the daughter to my mother, Joanne Viljoen
My fundraising is for my Elderly Abuse centre. I want to complete my studies and do my mediation course which will have an immediate impact before my degree can be finished in 2 years.
I help the elderly get maintenance orders against children/others in terms of abuse, economically, physically and verbal abuse (domestic violence/court orders – administrative of nature) free of charge.
Many older people are so abused by their children/others who take advantage of them, their assets, houses, cars, abuse our elderly vulnerable group to such a degree that they forget what life is about. I want to give them hope to live their dreams. It is never too late.
My mother is a victim of the abuse where her house was illegally transferred to another's name without the house being in the market. She lost everything, she worked for in her life, she stays with me now and I am fighting in courts to help her get her property back.
The amount of abuse she took up to here as an elderly made this passion burn in me for the elderly.
She had a double heart attack a few years ago. In this process, I met so many elderly abused people. I couldn’t believe that the elderly are taken advantage off in the most terrible ways.
This became my life journey 2 years ago to study my LLB to ensure that I can defend the elderly.
My finances are exhausted and I cannot continue my LLB Degree.
With my cause, I can create differences in thousands of elderly people’s lives as they are neglected a lot.
I can make their dreams come true, like my mother,'s dream to study by defending their rights. Help me to make this possible by assisting with my studies please and my mom to become a nurse. Kindly see below:
I am in arrears with my studies but realised to achieve my goals in helping people I need my education.
Unisa is a semester behind in payment and my semester 2 is due. The mediation course will have an immediate impact on the circumstances of the elderly. The mediation will have an immediate impact, my degree is long term still 2 years after this year to go. I need help with my education payments to study further. I need to raise the funds by August.
By completing this year’s studies and the mediation course I can make an impact. My mother’s studies - she is 74 years old and wanted to become a nurse all her life, although she worked 45 years in the health sector in a small town this is her dream. I want her dream to come true. Education is the most important to me I can go to court, litigate and help people that cannot afford to be helped. I have to create an awareness that there is help out here for them, they don't have to take the abuse of their children, family, community and others. They worked so hard for what they have and it can't be taken away from them.
My education will impact the need for the Elderly Abuse Centre and more people to help them against all abuse.
*Funds raised will be transferred directly to Unisa & Community Training Centre to study.*
