Barn Owl Team Recovery & Support

Personal message

The Barn Owl Coffee is a small owner-run café in the Midlands, KwaZulu-Natal. 

On Saturday the 18th of December 2021, seven members of the team were on their way to work when the driver lost control of the vehicle, which tragically resulted in two fatalities and one severely injured staff member. This devastating event has left behind small kids and elderly dependents. The surviving team members bear emotional scars and require urgent ongoing therapy and support. 

This is the start of a long road of recovery for The Barn Owl family of fourteen. Unfortunately, we do not have the expertise to provide the level of support the team needs to heal and recover. 

The proceeds will go to clinical trauma therapy as well as financial support for the families left behind. Our priority is mental health - in instances like this, it's typically neglected and we cannot stress enough the importance of ensuring that our team has the opportunity to process their trauma with professionals.

To Buyi and Max, you will be sorely missed. You brought so much positive energy to our kitchen and joy to our lives. Prince, all we can hope for is that you make a full recovery - the whole team is rooting for you!

We have the most amazing loyal customers who've taken us this far, the rest of the team needs your support now more than ever. To all the people who have reached out offering their help - this is where we need it the most.

Any donations will go a long way to assist Sandile, Lelo, Philip, Zanele, Thando, Ngenzi, Faith, Obama, Sone, and Simon.

Lots of love, 

Ryan
