Helping Dees family Campaign

In loving memory of Damien Harry a.k.a Dee. 

On July 2nd 2023, Dee took his own life after a battle with depression and frustration following his unfair dismal at work. The pressure, the anger, the shame and the helplessness became too much to bear. Damien was working on his own business which was already showing signs of success and great potential and was to set to fight his case with the CCMA in the coming weeks.

Unfortunately and possibly, due to the stress of month end, it became too much and in a moment of despair, he tragically gave in to the dark thoughts.

Dee leaves behind his wife, Lara, and his 2 year old daughter, Joy. We would like to raise money for Lara to help with funeral costs, groceries, baby supplies as well as settling Dee's debts from loans he had taken out to support his family in his time of unemployment. 

We would also like to assist Lara with paying for school fees, medical aid/insurances as well as rent for the next year until she can get back onto her feet. 

Grandparents from both sides are trying their best to support but are either retired or jobless and unable to financially support the duo.

We know the target may be ambitious, but we want to try and assist Lara with all financial needs as she processes this difficult time so that she can focus on raising her daughter by herself. 

Dee was loved by many and we hope this campaign will serve to honour his memory and look after his family. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and any donations whether we reach the target or not, will be greatly appreciated. 

In honour of Damien, who lived to dream.
