The following note comes from Mandy Zeelie at the Vermaaklikheid Christian School:
Donovan Michaels is a keen energetic young man of sixteen who has a burning desire to participate in the forthcoming athletics to be held in September in Pretoria. His total cost including air fare to the event is a whooping R3000 (three thousand rand) in total. This youngster has a tender heart irrespective of the battle he has within his dysfunctional family. He lost his dad at the age of three and is currently staying with his grandmother, Fiela, in a shack. A few days ago, when we had the welcoming rains, his room was soaking wet with mud on the floor yet this boy always has a winning smile on his face. Please help to make this dream come true. This would be the very first time that any youngster from this community will have the luxury to fly in an aeroplane. What a tale to tell his grandchildren one day.
Paul Andrew has pledged R500 towards Donovan’s expenses. Donations can be made into the school’s banking account:
