Personal message

Alf James sadly passed away on Sunday after 9 weeks in hospital.  Alf was a journalist and provided a critical income for the family.  He also volunteered extensively for Gateway News, a Christian online journal.  His friend and fellow Karoo Mighty Men Conference organiser describes him as follows: "There are so many amazing words to describe Alf James, but humility and love for God and his fellow man stand out for me".

His wife, Brenda James, runs the farm and battles drought, fires and volatile meat prices on a daily basis. The loss of a companion and a father to her children is devastating.  The last thing Brenda needs to be worrying about right now is finances! Let's give her a buffer to grieve.

We would like to raise the funds by the 1 August.

Brenda and Alf homeschooled the children until last year when Tessa and Tammy asked to register at Union High.  They have loved the school experience and have made good friends and have become involved with all the sports and activities.  With our help they will be able to continue to be members of the Union School community and enjoy the support of their friends. Brenda will not have to worry about raising money to pay fees and can put energy into the many other areas that demand her attention.

The money will go directly to pay Tessa and Tammy's school fees at Union High School.  Brenda will need to raise R120 000 per year for school and hostel for the next three years to pay their fees.  Any help with this will take a huge load off her shoulders.  A lot of small donations will make a huge difference to Brenda.

*Funds raised will be transferred directly to Union High School*
