Hi there, I'm Storm Minopetros.
I'm a junior sous chef of 23 years of age. I'm starting this fundraiser in the hopes of helping my friend and colleague Takudzwa Karakadzai(TK). We had a fire at our hotel, Ruslamere hotel and spar. TK is a Zimbabwean citizen who came to our establishment for his work-integrated training. He is an incredibly talented chef who showed enough promise for us to offer him a job. He moved onto our property and had been staying in staff accommodation since January. The fire has claimed everything he owns, including his documentation, visa and certificates. He was left with nothing but the clothes on his back.
TK made a truly difficult decision. He took note of the fire and decided to help clear the few guests that were staying with us rather than saving his property. The company and staff have been very supportive, and the insurance has added some financial aid. However, he has still lost all he has and in order to reapply for his visa he not only needs to trek back home but also cover all of his expenses to reacquire all of his documentation and certificates. Only then can he begin to think about replacing all of his belongings.
I'm hoping as a community we can help a man that I truly consider a hero and show him that we as a community are not only grateful but accommodating.
What is your time frame? We are aiming to help him as soon as possible. In order to help him expedite his reapplication and aid him in rebuilding his life.
First and foremost the funds will be used to reapply for his certificates, cover flight expenditure, accommodation in Zimbabwe, all paperwork expenses as well as his flight back to SA.
Your funds will allow him to rebuild everything he has lost. Whilst we can never truly put a value on all of the sentimental value and personal loss he has experienced. Anything helps when a man is in this difficult of a position.
The funds will be given directly to TK himself.
