- The campaign has raised just over R6 000 and is still climbing, proving that people are even willing to help in dark times
A BackaBuddy crowd-funding campaign has been started for horse enthusiast, Bafana Ndhlovu, after an accident totalled his car. Bafana is 43 years old and has worked with horses for the last 36 years.
Bafana was invited to work with his childhood friend, Belinda Martin, when she opened Penbritte Equestrian in Alewynspoort Valley. He soon progressed to a horse riding groom and then assistant manager
As his love for horses grew, he represented South Africa as a showjumper at the Inter Africa Cup in Swaziland. Finally, Bafana became a manager at Penbritte.
In the first week of August, Bafana was involved in an accident. A waterbuck ran across the road he was travelling on and hit his vehicle. Fortunately, Bafana suffered minor injuries.
Unfortunately his vehicle, which he purchased after saving for nine years, was written off.
Since the incident, Bafana has had to walk 20km to and from work. Bafana is the sole financial supporter for his mother, five sons and his extended family. Due to this, Belinda launched a crowdfunding campaign on BackaBuddy to help Bafana get back on his feet.
The campaign to raise funds for a vehicle for Bafana started on 24 August and has so far raised just over R6 000. To support Bafana in purchasing a new vehicle, kindly make a donation via BackaBuddy here.
