My name is Sean, I'm 29 years old and live in Port Elizabeth. I started a small audio visual/entertainment business earlier in last year out of desperation to make an income.
Unfortunately with South Africa's restrictions and imminent lock down all of my income streams have dried up completely in the midst of the Covid 19 outbreak.
My father, whom I live with, lost his employment in late last year and my income was all that supported our household. We have money for a few days of food left but until this blows over I have no other income for bills, fuel etc. I have tried applying for jobs but unfortunately due to the pandemic nobody is hiring and our events industry is all but collapsed leaving me with no future prospects.
Unfortunately in January my phone was stolen, February saw some equipment damages and March had a very ill pet with a huge vet bill. Any savings that I had are used up as a result of covering these huge unexpected expenses.
I am a proud person but I have no other option than to ask if people could help me. Any donations received will go towards helping me and my family survive this pandemic.
My monthly bills for fuel, internet, cell phones etc for the family is around R2000.
The rest of the money will be used for food to support the family during this time.
