Money problems
My husband left me and our child. I have R1500 left till I get paid again on 25.09.07. Everything is paid. This is for food and petrol for me and my child. How am I going to survive. I cannot ask and will not ask anyone for help. I have enough food for about 2 weeks.

Any ideas

I'm sure other readers will be able to come up with some useful suggestions here, as this is clearly not a psychiatric question. If you REFUSE to ask anyone for help, that does cut out several good options --- why refuse help when you need it through no fault of your own ? Can't you borow some money from friend or family ? And see someone at the Magistrate;'s court or a free legal advisor at a Law School law faculty, to get the court to force your husband to pay maintenance for the child, maybe even for you. He is not allowed to desert his family and his responsibilities
