Help Mel get home to her boys


Mel and her partner Joseph travelled to Africa via Europe from Australia on business early this year and have been stranded even since due to covid travel restrictions. Mel and her Fiancé spent their time in Africa creating a charity and working with locals to improve many aspects of their lives and will continue working in these areas along with new business ideas when they are safely back home and creating a company of their own in Africa. Mel has two young boys in Australia who she is desperate to get back too. She was meant to be away a few short weeks now it is 6 months! They need her and she needs them. Her fiancé and Mel are in different parts of Africa while he continues to work to raise funds and Mel tries to get home. She was due to fly home this Saturday but her flight has been cancelled due to changes in Australian government rules due to covid. First class and business have more seats and don’t carry the same risk of being bumped as economy does can but Mel and her partner don’t have the money to do this ($15,000!) as they have been self funding their charity work and surviving (nor do their friends and family!)  Mel is a kind hearted women giving to all she meets and wouldn’t hesitate to help another Mum get home. Covid has effected so many and is keeping families apart. If you can help please donate what you can. The Government isn’t helping and she is stuck in Kisangani in Africa alone which is also incredibly dangerous.  She is taking every precaution and hopes to be home very soon. Thank you everyone please contact Mel or myself directly if you need more information xo
