Stephanie Joubert
Hi there. My name is Stephanie Joubert and I am writing to you on behalf of my best friend Kerry-Lee Fox. She is 23 years old and is the strongest most amazing person I have ever known. She is the only person in her family to have completed her matric and she is currently working and studying through Babcock. Kerry has two siblings aged 27 and 24, both of which are currently unemployed. Her mom has also been unemployed for a vey long time and has since developed an alcohol addiction. Kerry and her grandfather used to support her entire family between the 2 of them but her grandfather has recently passed away, leaving her fully responsible for her entire household.She has spent every cent of her salary on renovating the house as it is not in a very good condition and providing food for her family. The electricity was cut off a few months ago as she just couldn't afford everything. As a result they had to boil water on the fire to bath and cook with. None of this took the smile off Kerry's face, she continued to work hard and study and I'm sure none of her colleagues were even aware that things were so tough in her life. She is a very proud women and battles to ask for help but she has come to a point where she can no longer keep supporting everyone as she needs to buy a place of her own soon. She attempted to write a letter to you herself but upon reading it I realised how little credit she gives herself for all that she does for those around her.Kerry's main worry is the health and mental well being of her mother who has tried to commit suicide about 5 times in the last year. She really needs help. Kerry has been trying to get her into a rehabilitation centre but cannot afford the costs involved.My wish is this: PLEASE HELP place Kerry's mom (Carol-Ann) in a rehab so that she can regain her confidence and health she needs to get back on her feet. She really is a wonderful mother, she has just lost her way and really needs help to find the right path.PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!!!!
