Lets get them home

Personal message

My name is Ethel-Louise Blommaert and I am raising funds for my friends, Tammy Mc Bride (27) and Deon Louw (34) who are currently stuck in Vietnam with no way to get back home.

Tammy and Deon are both english teachers in Vietnam. Deon has been there since 11 March 2019 and Tammy since 2 August 2019, but what was meant to be an amazing love story filled with laughter and adventure turned scary.

In January, Vietnam has their TET holiday. TET is the Vietnamese new year and most important public holiday in Vietnam, where everyone goes home to their families and schools and local markets are closed. This is where everything started. With schools being closed, this meant that for two weeks, they would not get an income and with the local markets being closed where they usualy buy food as it is more affordable they would now have to settle for food they would not normally buy as it is too expensive. This means they can only afford to eat once a day, but they will be okay, because school starts in 2 weeks and then everything will go back to normal... or so we thought.

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak school break was extended with another 2 weeks and then another and havn't reopend since.

Tammy and Deon's funds has since run out and have been surviving in a foreign country without knowing where their next meal will come from and with no way to make an income as they don't have a Laptop, so online classes are not a option. Tammy has tried to sell some of her crafts at local bars and markets, but since Lockdown that has been impossible as well. Family and friends help where they can, but all they want to do at this point is to come back home where they have surety of food and shelter.

This is where we come in. Imagine being in a foreign country, scared, with no money for food or rent and no way to get home to your families.

Flight tickets are between 13k and 16k per person (who can even afford that?) Rent and bike rental still needs to be payed for the month of April which amounts to another R10k.

They are a sister, brother, son, daughter, they are my friends and they mean the world to a lot of people. Please help us get this amazing couple back home.

They need a total of R41 800

  • Rent for April: R7000
  • Bike rental for April: R2800
  • Flight Tickets home: R16000 x 2 = R32000
