Back a buddy with petrol/diesel

Back a buddy with petrol/diesel

Personal message

I am Herman van der Berg a male 46 yrs of age residing in Springs Ekurhuleni. I am a person who helps people all over the country, and with the recent crime increases in this country I want to create a fund to help people whose vehicles stalled due to no funds for diesel/petrol in remote areas to reach a place of safety like a garage or home etc

I am fundraising to achieve these objectives. To help people stranded in remote areas without petrol to reach a safe area. To develop an app so people can register and in the event of them stranded due to no fuel they can send their location and cell number so I can get someone in their area to go see and help.

I want to help people as soon as possible, I help already but my funds are limited. To achieve my goal in 90 days
It is 100 x5lt diesel and 100 x 5lt petrol at the current fuel prices and R240 a Jerry can bringing the amount to R51.193 vat incl

Then its R25000 for the Help a buddy app which will be cost to design and create and register the app.R5000 for marketing and R20 000 to distribute fuel to persons in need...

The app will be an app where you can register as an individual. You will also register your emergency numbers like family a breakdown service etc. It will be location based so when you press the button for assistance I will ask what the emergency is and send a WhatsApp to your registered family members.

And if they are far and cannot assist I will send a vetted volunteer to help if petrol is needed. If it's a breakdown the necessary breakdown or tow in will be contacted. If there is no answer I will send emergency personnel like the police to investigate.

It can also be used as a panic button in an attack or house invasion.  The areas in which I will start first is high crime areas like Gauteng East Rand and from Worcester to Cape town but will assist in any area if possible.  It will also help if a truck was stoned and emergency services needed.

It will be an app that is used on a newer smartphone can detect a crash via a sensor in-app and immediately alert the listed persons or businesses with the near or exact location

Sometimes people push limits and they forget to fill petrol and get stranded. This part will be integrated later to help people who need help with no family near.

The death of innocent people on roads due to being robbed while stranded due to empty fuel tanks is scary and some people do not have the cash to buy more.

The app and petrol will help save innocent lives.

I want to be able to help every person stranded in a remote area with 5 liters of petrol/diesel to reach a place of safety so these senseless unnecessary killing of innocent people can stop.

*Where possible, funds will be paid directly to the relevant supplier/institution*
