Help a SA farm family

*pictures and names have been changed for safety reasons**

My name is Sherrin

I rent a farmhouse on the farm in South Africa, I work for the farmer who took us in as I have been retrenched after being in the Motor Industry for 21 years, I have children the youngest is 3.

My Grandparents where born in the United Kingdom and my mother is now a British Citizen however the costs to immigrate to the UK are very high due to the cost of the NHS fees involved.

I have been offered a job in 3 other countries New Zealand, Australia and Ireland which are all cheaper options.

But I am still short a huge amount of money.

I was raped already in 2008 and the safety on the farm is a concern. That along with the drop in the standard of education and over all living conditions currently in SA I am desperate to give my children a better life. Work is very limited here now and I am going to have to immigrate as soon as I can to give the children a safer and better quality of life and to get to one of the job offers abroad.

I have some savings and our family has raised around 5000 pounds but still need help please!

I thank you for taking a moment to read my story.

Warmest regards
