Oom Dawie needs a new cart

Oom Dawie needs a new cart

Personal message

Oom Dawie is a state pensioner living is a rural village called Suurbraak. This little village is about three hours outside of Cape Town.

He owns two horses, Violet and Kolletjie. His only mode of transport is via horse and cart. He travels about 15 km every Sunday to visit his family in Buffelsjagrivier, a neighboring hamlet.

His cart is in a very bad condition which poses a threat to Oom Dawie and his wife when they use it. When his cart was in a better condition he provided rides through the village to visitors to supplement his pension.

Unfortunately he is now unable to do so.

I have contacted the Cart Horse association and they have a second hand cart for R6500 which would be perfect for him. They were unable to fix his cart .Getting him this second hand cart would allow him to travel in safety and it would be more comfortable for the horses too.
