With South Africans finding themselves spread all over the globe,it’s a small world. The sad fact – from time to time, natural disasters do occur. It’s with angst that families and friends follow news of such untimely and unexpected events, as has been the case in recent past where ex-South Africans were implicated in Christchurch, New Zealand.

As a South African brand with clients, families and friends living abroad we have compassion for, and an understanding in sharing, such angst and believe it prudent to plan in assisting in such eventualities.

To extend a helping hand and make things easier in such times we’re establishing a fund labeled finglobal.com-helping hand. The purpose? To do as the name suggests – offering a helping hand in the form of emergency, medical or shelter support.

Readers of fresh milk who know of relevantly affected fellow South Africans, no matter where in the world, may contact finglobal.com director, Mariette Janse van Rensburg, in Brisbane, Australia on mariette@finglobal.com who will engage with and facilitate helping hand support initiatives.
