Peet coming from a socially disadvantaged background due to the Apartheid system of government prior to 1994 should be entitled to financial help from the South African government to help get his son Pernell Luther van Staden through university, however when Peet applied for a grant he was turned away because he was apparently not “Black enough.”
Peet and his family are regarded as Coloureds or people of mixed race and they find themselves caught in this terrible trap of sometimes being labelled black and then other occasions labelled as not Black enough.
I am trying to raise funds to help Peet get his son through university and am asking for as little as £5, $5 or any Rand or Euro donation.
Please Help or if you cannot at least send this blog to a friend of business colleague.
