The case of brother Adiel, a 53-year old single parent and father of two, is a shining example of how SANZAF not only provides financial welfare assistance, but also empowers individuals to becoming self-sustaining.
Still fairly young and physically abled, Adiel’s employment prospects have been severely hindered by a lack of education, having left school in grade 4 to pursue work. This left him with limited reading and writing skills. The only form of financial assistance Adiel received came in the form of a meagre R200 a month from his brother; barely sufficient to meet the food requirements of a single person, let alone a family.
Having approached SANZAF Belhar for welfare assistance in January 2016, Adiel, still very much eager to work, was enrolled by the regional office into a security course. Since then he has completed all his security guard grades, as well as relevant training courses. He is currently employed as a full-time security guard and earns ± R 4500 monthly.
In a stable job and with his life back on track, Adiel is now motivated to further his career in the security industry. He has enrolled himself into an ABET (Adult Basic Education Training) programme where he is currently learning to read and write.
Adiel has expressed his gratitude towards SANZAF for the opportunity presented to him and he believes that through SANZAF’s intervention, many others who find themselves in similar situations will be able to find some form of relief and self-sustainability.
