 Mr Timothy Govender owned an internet cafe at Bridge City Mall called JC Internet Cafe. He started the business in 2010 and saw it crumble down to ashes in 2021 from unjustifiable acts by strangers. 

Unfortunately, he had failed to insure his business as he had never imagined that something of this nature would happen.

Mr Govender shared that he had rented two machines from Konica which were also not insured. He recently found out that he has to continue paying for the contract regardless of the equipment burning? Pay with what money? 

This situation led him to applying for assistance through The Big Favour. 

He shared that his business sold electronics, did computer repairs, photocopyying, laminating  and other admin services one would require.  He lost all of this and the building in which he operated. 

We are happy to share this amount of money with him so he can rebuild 10 year worth of work back. 

This is how his business looked before the looting:
