Personal message

My name is Troy Herbst. I am a 50-year-old who has been struggling for 2 years to find a job. I am desperately trying to raise money to complete a very important course, so I can help provide for my family

I lost my job 2 years ago and shortly after that, I broke my arm and had to pay a very large amount out to cover for doctor’s bills. This resulted in me losing all of my savings.

I am left with no other choice but to do a course which will allow me to find employment in my field (security) outside of South Africa. My family and I are really struggling and we have nowhere else to turn to. God bless those who take the time to read this message

My family and I pride ourselves on our informal soup kitchens that we do for the poor and homeless when we can afford it. This in the Cape Town southern suburbs. We also assist the homeless with clothing and blankets in winter when finances allow. Not only will this funding help my family and I to get back up on our feet but through a good job, we will be able to continue to support and assist the homeless on a more regular basis.


*Funds raised will be paid to the relevant institution*
