  1. I am from SA and just want to say that our people are subjected to immense sufferings. You are constantly filled with fear and panic. We sleep with locked bedroom doors just to feel a bit safer when you sleep. My parents were attacked at night when they had supper. Four guys went through a solid window and hurt my parents very badly. My mother did not make it and my father turned into a scared pathetic person once he came out of the hospital. They broke both his knees, cut his tongue out and stabbed him all over his body. This is a wonderful country with great potential but unfortunately there are very bad people living here. I have no idea how we can safe this country from total destruction.

  2. There is so much murder and mayhem on a daily basis in SA. Its sickening and not a way of life at all. I have been trying every avenue for a year now to get my son out of this hell hole. He is only 19. I have been unemployed for over 2 years so cannot begin to afford this. Add to that the delapidated home affairs and its a recipe for disaster and hopelessness. Why is there no sponsors for young adults? I have made peace with my fate here. But it kills me to not be able to save my son. Every group that claims to offer assistance still require funds. I dont have funds. We live hand to mouth. Is anybody prepared to assist one young South African at a time to get out before they too become a statistic or will the world cry after thw fact like with Zim?
