Themba's GoFundMe

Themba Cabeka is originally from Johannesburg, South Africa and came to the UK looking for a better life. He boarded an 8 hour flight with his best friend via the wheel of the plane in hopes of a better life, and to pursue his dream of being a musician. Unfortunately during the flight his best friend fell from the plane and died, you can imagine this was extremely traumatic. Themba hoped to arrive in the UK and make it happen, but after the long-haul flight at freezing temperatures, he was left in a coma for 6 months and also suffered a terrible injury to his leg, resulting in him no longer being able to use his left leg. He has been thrown into over-populated housing without correct cleaning facilities and sleeping areas. Despite all the odds being stacked against him since birth, he is still able to smile and be happy which just shows the nature of his character. A man who is truly positive despite everything really deserves to be blessed. With the help 
people's generosity we could give Themba the life he risked his own life to get.

The goal of this fund is to raise enough money to find Themba a place of his own to live, away from the terrible conditions he currently lives in. The money will also be used to allow him to live the comfortable life he has always been deprived of. If you can find it in your heart to give anything it will go towards changing a mans life who really deserves it. Thank you and please share.

Themba is a friend of mine and I (Gabriel Frood) will be withdrawing the funds to my bank account. I will then use this to pay for the essential things and sort him out. I will keep receipts/record of everything the money has been used for and the total amount withdrawn.

That is the link to his story if anyone would like to read up on it. Thank you
