A SENIOR counsell member of a non-profit organisation - Brothers and Sisters for Life - who works with abused women, Johan Nel, is walking from Olivedale, Randburg to Amanzimtoti, to raise funds for abused children rescued by the organisation.

Nel is walking 1 642km, solo with no vehicle support. He left Randburg on 16 April and plans to arrive in Toti on 7 May.

“He is raising funds for all the angels in need of food, clothing, toys and raising funds for living costs for six children taken from their abusive parents and placed in the care of their grandparents.
“They are hoping to get donations to help grandparents pay for the education of the children,” said Bianca Holman, founder of Against Substance Abuse, which is supporting the drive.

The children range in age from as young as three months to nine years. To donate, go to the drop-off point, Charlie’s Bar in Warner Beach, 1 Strelitzia Road.
