GMA Coronavirus Support: Assisting a 22-year-old breadwinner with R10,000

GMA Coronavirus Support: Assisting a 22-year-old breadwinner with R10,000

Martin Venter has been the breadwinner for his siblings since he was 15. Now at 22, his load becomes a bit lighter.

GMA Martin Venter

BACKGROUND: He left school to find a job as his mother could not support them. His parents were divorced, and his dad died two years ago. Martin worked as a carpenter, but the company shut its doors and retrenched all the employees when lockdown started. Martin and his siblings currently live in a caravan park and he has no way of earning a living. His parents didn’t register him at birth, and he’s submitted all the paperwork to get an ID, but this process will only resume at Level 1 of lockdown. This means he cannot claim UIF or any other state support. His former colleague Pieter and his wife Nickey have assisted where they can, but Pieter was also retrenched, so they turned to Good Morning Angels for assistance for Martin and his siblings.

REQUEST FOR: 22-Year-old Martin Venter 

REQUEST FROM: Nickey and Pieter Jooste 

ANGEL:  The Good Morning Angels Fund NPC 

SPONSORING: The GMA Fund will send R10,000 in AngelRands to Martin to assist with food, warm clothing, and essentials for him and his siblings.

Hallo Angels

Vandag vra ek Groot Asb vir julle hulp. Dis vir Martin Venter en gesin.  Hulle kort groceries, wintersklere, bedegoed - veral warm komberse en 'n beter blyplek. Hy het saam my man gewerk, maar weens die Covid-19 het die company besluit om die deure maar te sluit en hulle is afbetaal. Hy is 22 jaar oud en sorg vir sy boetie van 15jaar oud en sy sussie van 13- jaar oud. Hy kyk ook na sy ma, wat hulle nie kan onderhou nie.  Sy ouers is jare gelede geskei en sy pa is so twee jaar gelede oorlede. Martin en sy boetie en sussie bly in ’n   karavaanpark in Bredell, Kemptonpark. 

Ek en my man het vir hulle 'n paar goedjies geva. Die karavaan wat hy huur is rerig baie klein. Ons probeer vir hulle ander blyplek kry. Martin probeer baie hard om vir sy boetie en sussie te sorg. Ek sal dit baie waardeer as julle Asb vir Martin hulle  kan help. 

Groot Asb help vir Martin en gesin hulle het rerig hulp nodig 

Vriendlik Groete,

Nickey en Pieter Jooste
