The murders of three South African children in Timaru, New Zealand, have inspired expats around the world to come together and join a support network created by SA emigrant Ursula Riemer.

Following the brutal killings of two-year-old twin girls Maya and Karla, and their six-year-old sister Liane Dickason, allegedly by their mother, Riemer took to Facebook to express her devastation. In the post that she has since deleted, Riemer suggested physical support groups to assist SA immigrants and provide all sorts of different support.
