South Africa is a country in turmoil. The crime statistics are frightening. 45 000 reported rapes in a period of 20 days in August of this year alone. It has been stated that being a farmer in South Africa is the most dangerous occupation in the world. There were 22 confirmed farm attacks in August of this year, leading to 5 gruesome murders. The total number of farm attacks this year is 87. Over 2000 white people are murdered a month, in a country a little bigger than the state of Texas. 800 000 white South Africans, more than 20% of the remaining white population, live in abject poverty in shacks built of cardboard boxes and discarded roofing, with no toilets, running water or electricity. They are denied access to any form of state assistance and are dying from hunger and cold. Whites have, essentially, been denied access to jobs and have no means of lifting themselves out of poverty.
According to statistics there is one violent service delivery protest in South Africa every second day. These protests evolve into the likes of the Ferguson protests and result in looting, arson and murders.
In light of the above, and many more daily atrocities occurring in South Africa, we are trying to shine a light on the horror facing the people of South Africa and the difficulties they face when wanting to escape.
The process of immigration to the US is almost impossible for these people as there are only three ways to get a visa – work, family or study. It is a long, expensive process which most South Africans cannot undertake, nor hope to qualify for a visa at the end of it.
We are trying to match up worthy applicants with an “adoptive family” here in the US who would help with the acquisition of a work visa and offer these applicants a job, help with accommodation and the means to travel to the US. South Africans, as a whole, have a wonderful work ethic and would be an asset to any community.
We have a particular Pastor in mind, to be the first in this process. If you are genuinely interested in helping this man of God, you may contact us for his resume and we will put you in touch with him to discuss this further.
