Help a journalist tell the truth

Help a journalist tell the truth

Personal message

Ntozakhe Douglas Mthukwane is an internationally known South Africa journalist with a proud record of standing up for the truth. He recently lost all his possessions in a tragic fire that happened in the dead of night and engulfed the floor of the apartment block where he is staying in Kimberley. Since then he has been struggling financially and has found it near impossible to continue his profession as a freelance journalist. In his own words " In April my flat was affected by a neighbors fire which gutted almost everything I had. I'm back at the place without electricity. I haven't had an income since January. Younger brother who is married with four kids is helping both myself and my other five unemployed siblings at my mothers house."

We, the persons requesting the fundraising, are fellow freelance journalists, writers, photojournalists and colleagues of Douglas in the freelance association we all belong to. We would like to help him back on his feet again.

I want to be back on my feet, feed , clothe and continue my freelance journalism projects which are so hard to find without resources which I currently lack.

The laptop i was using also got damaged after the fire brigade tried to put out the fire while i was rushed to hospital for smoke inhalation which damaged my chest. I cough like a 90 year old.
