Die een SAKB
Here is also a site : www.dienuwesuidafrika.com
Die fotos is baie erg. die videos het ek al gesien, maar nog nooit regtig aandag aan die fotos gegee nie.
die laaste video wat wys waar die man met die buiteband nog op hom le is ook vir my baie ontstellend gewees....

En die beste van alles is eks nie queezy nie...eish....

Thanks Smallfly, but it seems for now it's solved... this family has made it to Canada (did the long haul just a few weeks ago.  We tracked their progress across the USA and some of us on the other site, even watched the online webcam of the Canadian border to watch them crossing.  It's just one of many sad stories, but at this point it has a very happy ending.  They have a wonderful house that his new boss has provided, and when they arrived in CA, the new boss and his wife were there to welcome them with a big Canadian flag on the porch.  God is good.
Thanks for the help and info.  One never knows if we may need this again to help another family.
lekker sweet as, y'all
