This is undoubtedly the most difficult mail I have ever had to write. I think this is the 12th attempt.
I have always provided well for my daughter Jessica and myself without any financial assistance from anyone.
Beginning last year I was made redundant from a very well paid job. I eventually found alternate employment but earning a third of what I used to.
Slowly the reduced income has started to take its toll. There is nowhere where I can cut any more costs. I can write a best-seller on how to survive with the bare minimum.
Jessica matriculated in 2012 and was an outstanding student. We looked at various options to further her studies and with the high costs of university fees, accommodation, books and transport, we decided that the cheapest option would be to study through Damelin. This allowed us to save on transport costs and accommodation. We tightened our belts, cut costs and with the little savings I still had, I managed to pay her studies for 2013. This was worth every cent as she completed her first year with 7 distinctions.
She enrolled for her second year and we were so positive that we would somehow manage to pay the costs for her studies, but …. Life happens and I have not been able to pay anything towards her studies apart from the registration fees. Soon she needs to write first semester exams, and yesterday we were told that if we don’t pay something towards her studies, she will not be allowed to write her exams. I am devastated!!!
Please, please, please ……. Do you have some funds available in your Good Morning Angels fund that can assist with Jessica’s tuition fees. R11 000-00 is required for her to write her exams in May – I do not expect you to pay the full amount, but every little bit will help!
I know there are people with much bigger problems and who are in more need of assistance than we are, but I am so desperate, I don’t know who else to ask for assistance.
I have attached a copy of the Damelin account as well as Jess’ results for 2013.
