This campaign has been set up to raise fund to help one of the Staff at Ballots Bay in the George area of the Garden Route In South Africa.
Daniel Sithole is our head ranger and has a heart of gold. Daniel lives in Thembelethu and has set up and run a community Gym for the neighborhood. Daniel also helps underprivileged kids train for boxing and similar disciplines in his home-based Gym, which keeps them off the streets and motivated towards bettering themselves.
In the early hours of this morning ( 2019-08-11) Daniel sent the Ballots Bay Alert Group a photo of his whole house, and the little community GYM burning down. Apparently, a neighbor had left on their stove, and went out. Daniel was thankfully woken up by his other neighbors shouting for him to get out as his house was on fire. He managed to get himself out but has lost everything to the fire. He only has the clothes he was wearing to bed. Our local Home Owners have gotten together and provided him with temporary accommodation, and some clothes, and a little cash so he can keep warm and find a little rest. But there is a BIG task ahead for him to rebuild his home, and the community GYM he was running. I am asking the wider community to help us raise funds so Daniel can rebuild his life, and also support his local community by rebuilding the GYM. Everything has been lost in the fire. This man has helped many others, and it would be great to be able to help him in his time of need.
This is an urgent request, as Daniel is without a home, which he has been lovingly building over the years. We would like to help him get a head start in rebuilding the house, as well as getting the Gym back open for the local community.
All the funds raised will go towards rebuilding Daniel's house, and the rebuilding of the community gym. He needs to rebuild from scratch. And while its nothing fancy, every little bit will go to help him re-establish his life, and serve his community.
Daniel has lost almost everything to the fire. Not only will these funds go a long way to helping him rebuild his own home, but also towards re-setting up the little community Gym, so the youth can continue to have a place to train and be inspired.
Daniel will need building materials, furniture, and gym equipment, and in general, get his life back on track after this devastating fire.
