Personal message

Gabrielle Cohen from Johannesburg is raising funds for Jean Pierre Kashama and his family to help keep his childrenin school.

The Kashama family is a family of four refugees from the DRC. They fled to South Africa to build a secure and happy life for themselves. However, they have faced a number of xenophobic attacks, unemployment and a home invasion that has left them very far behind on school fees. Their two children excel academically and have both been prefects at their schools. If their school fees are not paid, their daughter will not be able to enroll at the high school.

Jean-Pierre works for the security company that patrols the area in which I live. His wife is Marie Claudine. The children are Milani Benis Kashama and Muamukala Kashama.

On their behalf of the family, I have been negotiating with the schools which have agreed to drop each arrears amount by half to make the goal of clearing their debt more reasonable and accessible.

Breakdown of costs: Regents Primary R10 320 and Hill High School R10 000

I truly believe that clearing this debt would provide the family with a clean slate that will allow them to move forward. Refugees are commonly the most vulnerable members of society with very few individuals and institutions looking out for them. Please help us look out for the Kashama family.

*Funds raised will go directly to Reagents Park Primary and Hill High School*
