Hi, I am Sonja Campbell and I am from Cape Town, Plumstead.
I have known Joseph for years, he was my car guard at the gym. To earn extra cash he would wash cars. Always with a bright cheery smile and a kind word. He is a kind and decent man who brought his family here in search of a better life.
He is just not the kind of guy who would ever turn to crime or selling drugs etc. As gentle and decent a person as you could ever meet. He has never abused my help… I assisted him to pay rent and buy food during those long months of lockdown. As soon as he could he was back at work, also trying to add in extra by becoming a Big Issue seller.
Covid cut him off at the knees and his greatest wish is to return home to the Congo. There he has shelter and land. Here he and his young family have been thrown into the streets because he could not pay rent. Sadly, he only reached out to me before they were thrown out.
I have now paid for accommodation for July and I want to raise the 20 thousand to be able to send them all back home to the Congo. The cost for the five of them is 17 thousand. The extra 3000 is so that they have money if they need food or anything else on the route.
It will be by bus so will take a few days. Your small donation will make a huge difference to an entire family. Please, I ask from the bottom of my heart, help me to help Joseph and his family go home.
