Rethabile Mlotshwa, the victim of the horrifying #CoffinAssault racist attack, needs help to get back on his feet and rebuild his life.

Rethabile Mlotshwa is a young man whose world was devastated in a vicious racist attack two months ago.  You might remember him as the #CoffinAssault man?  A poor man to start with, he must now rebuild his life, his spirit and his self-confidence.  That’s not easy, it takes time and it takes "space."  It took me a year to recover from a burglary at gunpoint but how does Rethabile begin to recover from this?

 

His attackers will soon be sentenced to a long time in jail but what about Rethabile?  He is a poor man and the world has other worries.  We can give him the space and time he needs to rebuild his life and create a brighter future.

 

I'm asking each of you for a thought, less than you might tip a restaurant bill, a small $5, because many smalls will help Rethabile build a bright future where he can put this atrocious crime behind him.

 

This event still bothers me even after two months.  There are still nights when I wake gasping and sweating - how can human beings have done this to another human being?  #WhitesDoCare raised R11,000 ($800.)  That's a good start but racism and violent racist crimes are a scourge that effects people across the entire world and I think WeTheWorld can do better.  Will you help please?
