SORT BY Relevancy
They say by middle age you should have settled down and have gone around the block a few times, repeating the same year every year. For me it has been more a case of getting up on the block and falling off it or finding another one again and again and thus having 30 different years over the past 3 decades. This has given me a unique insight.
Born in Benoni near Johannesburg back in the 60’s my mother, a single parent with 3 boys, was hard at work finding a replacement father, while we were fed by family, friends and church. We brought ourselves up playing in the fields, streets and dams of the greater residential area, something you could do quite safely then. Although Afrikaans, we were sent to English school which was walking distance as there was no money for bus fare to the Afrikaans school. In those days of Eurocentricity it was considered a wise thing by some.
I discovered what steak was at age 14 when my Mother remarried, and saw TV for the first time as television was introduced into SA despite Apartheid’s best efforts. We moved to the Cape and after high school, I had to do my compulsory military service as there was no money for further studies. University was not free in Apartheid SA and cost the price of a house then.
Like most of us, the two years in the army was bittersweet. You’re glad you had the experience but would have preferred not to even though you knew it was good for you. I spent three quarters of it up on the border (South West Africa and Angola), driving tanker trucks with aviation fuel and diesel to wherever the helicopters and tanks needed them.
Back in civvy street the only choice was to get a job to pay rent and buy food. There was no safety net or grants in Apartheid SA. By age 23 I was awarded a Singer Franchise which was shortlived as the local monopoly supermarket chain decided to enter that market too and I became another small business destroyed by big business.
The sad reality of South Africa today is that many minority (Whites are the minority in S. Africa) families cannot even feed themselves, children don't have winter coats, food is scarce and healthcare nearly non-existent. Many of these families don't even have a place to call home. Additionally, there are many thousands of whites living inside and outside of 'squatter camps', lacking even the most basic necessities of life. With recent employment law changes in South Africa, Whites are almost completely excluded from the current job market and there is no government assistance there, like there is here in the United States, to assist those in this position. The post-apartheid system is discriminatory towards Whites they are suffering greatly as a result.
Valiant efforts are underway to curtail these horrors, both from individuals as well as from a scant few organizations, and during the show this Sunday at 7pmCST, we will welcome two guests that will shed light on these efforts and WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP.
Debbie, a private individual living in South Africa and Leigh from the South Africa Family Relief Project (SAFRP) both work FEVERISHLY to collect and distribute monetary and physical goods and donations that they use to provide housing, food, clothing, basic necessities and mental health services to these White minority crime victims and their families living in extreme poverty in South Africa. They work selflessly to ease the pain and bridge the gaps for the increasingly discriminated against White population suffering unspeakable horrors in post-apartheid South Africa.
