My name is Louise, I am here to request help for a friend.
Recently, my best friend Charmain, lost her wheels after she dropped off her son at school, what would have seemed like a normal day soon ended into the unthinkable.
As she walked her son to class and kissed him goodbye, on arrival back in the parking area, her car was gone. The thieves knew exactly where the cameras of the school were, and in doing so, dodged every possible way to be identified.
They used a cut open tennis ball to pop open her car door, according to police this took less than 5 minutes. Her wallet was in the glove compartment along with her phone, including her rent and grocery money she had drawn before she dropped him off at school. She now has to get to work on foot, as her co-workers all drive from different locations, taking a bus or a taxi from time to time costing her even more inconveniences.
She did not have insurance so that's bit of a problem. Between me and our other friends, we take turns to drive her son to school every morning and fetch him in the afternoon.
If anyone can please help my friend just so she can go back to having a basic normal life again even if it just means having wheels again we all would greatly appreciate it. God bless anyone who is able to help.
