#Help4Oupa

Personal message

I have set up this campaign to help an old homeless man, he is frail and has health issues and suffers from Tourettes.

Oupa saved me from an attempted armed robbery with a mere walking stick.
I would like to repay the favour and would like to raise funds to build him a Wendy house.

Funds raised will help cover:
Material and labour costs. He will need a bit of furniture, Bed, couch, utensils etc. Clothes as he has none and also money so he can get regular medical care and food.

He will finally have a place to rest his head, warmth, a home to retire in. He can have his health taken care of and food. No more begging as he has Tourettes and that's already a problem for him in the streets as people tend to take advantage of him

All monies will be used in building Oupas home and furniture, clothes etc. 

*Where possible, funds raised will be transferred directly to the relevant organisation - medical/building supplier.  The rest of the funds will be managed by the campaign creator and paid out as per Zanele's instructions for any costs involved in helping Oupa*

Please read the story here.

Oupa Support Cause

Oupa Support Cause Logo

Zanele Masule, a personal assistant, was returning home from running a few errands on Wednesday evening when men armed with guns started running towards her.   Frozen with fear, the 29-year-old was ready to hand over her valuables but before the men could get near her, an elderly homeless man chased them off with his walking stick. This campaign is to help repay the favour and build Oupa a Wendy house.
