Gerald, a retired mechanical engineer has finished a big project in Mali and has not been paid. He is now having to rely on the donations of friends and family, but in South Africa we are all battling financially. His funds have been used up trying to subsist on their empty promises. We need to help him raise funds to engage a lawyer to fight his case. This is the only way they might be forced to pay. The project employs many Mali people and is up and running. They have kept him waiting for over two years now. This is very bad for his mental and physical health, and is not fair at all, considering the hard work he put into it.
In South Africa there is no dole system to help out - when you land in a crisis there is no way out, unless kind people feel it in their hearts to help.
