Here's to you Joseph

Here's to you Joseph

Personal message

My name is Jane Wingfield and I am trying to raise funds for a gentleman named Joseph who lives on the streets in Brooklyn, Pretoria.

Joseph is 55 years old and came to Pretoria from Limpopo 10 years ago to look for work. But with no skills and after a long time searching to no avail, he ended up on the streets of Pretoria. He has been too embarrassed to return home with nothing to show for his efforts, which meant him losing his confidence and dignity in the process. Joseph is a victim of our broken system.

Joseph is a good man and I often assist him with groceries and clothes, but this year I asked him what he would like for Christmas. Joseph responded that he would love to go home to Limpopo, to his sister, his only living relative and to whom he hasn't spoken since he left.

I would love to raise funds to buy Joseph his bus ticket to Limpopo (Giyani), some new clothes, toiletries, a cellphone to contact me if he encounters any issues and some cash for food.

I will make all of the purchases and draw money for Joseph.
After 10 years of not seeing his sister (whom we hope and pray is still alive) or his family home, this trip home will change Joseph's life.

The funds will be used for the following:
Bus ticket from Pretoria to Giyani: R300
Clothes + shoes: R1000
Bag: R200
Cellphone + SIM + airtime: R350
Money for food: R2000

Funds will be paid directly into the relevant beneficiary.
