Personal message

Michael grew up in the Andrew Murray Children's Home in Wellington South Africa.

In 2014 I got involved there and did some charity work. When I met Michael, I saw a child that would do anything to make a better life for himself. He worked very hard and did well academically; and being a born athlete, he excelled in all sports. I decided to stand by him and do whatever I could to help him reach his full potential.

2016, together with Huguenot High School, we managed to get him out of the Children's Home. During the week he stayed in the hostel and weekends and holidays with me.
By 2017 Michael was well known, as an athlete and rugby player; and he got approached by various Rugby Unions to further his rugby career with them.

2018 he started with a union in Johannesburg and signed a 2 year contract but as things tend to change in the rugby world, about 30 players got retrenched in October.   This changed things dramatically for Michael and suddenly he had nowhere to go & didn't know where to from here.
Last week he crossed paths with Frankie Horne at the Sevens Rugby Academy in Stellenbosch and as luck would have it, a player got another opportunity and left; there was an open spot for Michael.

Now this is where you and everyone I know and worked with come in; I need help raising funds and every rand helps.
The program cost is R120,000; this includes accommodation, meals, clothes, physiotherapy, training etc. We have managed to get the amount down to R70,000 but this I have to pay before the end of April 2019.

Please help him reach his full potential.

*Funds raised will be transferred directly to Stellenbosch Academy of Sport *
