Personal message

My son, Kevin, was always a kind hearted, loving and generous child. He was active in sport and achieved colors in soccer, gymnastics and table tennis. He is an avid artist and went to art school after finishing high school.

It was then that he lost interest in sports and dropped out of art school. He became aggressive, selfish & rude. We were fighting constantly and eventually, I decided he should go live with his Dad in Botswana. After a year in Botswana, he asked to come back as he wanted to work and go back to study.

He came back in November 2018 and shortly afterward secured a job and was due to start on 7 January 2019. I returned from visiting my mother on 9 January 2019 to find Kevin had not only not gone to work but he was delusional, paranoid and had apparently not slept in a week.

He was admitted to hospital immediately for a suspected drug overdose. It turns out he started taking drugs in his first year of University, hence the strange behavior.

Kevin has completed 7 months in rehab and is now started the next step of his rehabilitation at a secondary Centre (halfway house) where he starts reintegrating back into society.

Kevin wants to start studying now. All funds will go towards his rehabilitation and his studies. 

Kevin is doing very well. We are almost there.
