Help me get my family home with me!

We have had a tough year, all of us. Unfortunately some had it worse than others. In our case I  have been without my wife and 2 children since November 2019, I left them in South Africa to complete my employment probation in Australia and we were suppose to re-unite May 2020. Due to Covid-19 all the borders had shut and travel was out of the equation. We have had so much unplanned costs as their flights were cancelled and we needed to keep paying for new tickets out of our own savings leaving it depleted - "yes just because of the crazy flight prices and the continuity of Australian Border caps"

Their flight costs are currently standing at $23 000.00 and we still need to pay for their 14-day mandatory quarantine (prison facilitation) - $ 3000 but we are blessed that we have found a flight that will be able to get them here. Due to Covid-19 policies, flights do NOT refund or when they are able to it takes up to 4 months to refund. They need to undertake Covid-19 tests and take out travel insurance also. This has been draining our financial capacity as we already had to go above and beyond just to make our dream come true. 

Unfortunately due to depleted savings and optioning for debt we were wondering if we can avoid it by asking our nearest and dearest and also rely on the kindness of strangers. If you could please be so kind as to spare us a few pennies and help us to raise enough funds so that our new future will not begin in debt. 

All funds raised will strictly be used for their trip to re-unite with me whom I have not seen for more than 10 months now. The left over money after all costs have been covered will be donated to the "Kids Kicking Cancer" charity. 

We will forever be grateful to each and every individual who opened their hearts and their wallets to us, in order for us to make this a reality. This was the hardest thing to do and ask because we understand that this is difficult times where most families do not have any cents to spare.  

If you did make a donation towards our dream, thank you sooooo much. If you couldn't please don't feel bad we do understand and we will appreciate it if you could please be so kind to share our cause.
