Nominator Name: Linda Jansen

Nominee Name: Linda Kanyemba

"Linda and her husband Noel live across the road from me in a flat with 3 children, Jordan, Israel and Cairo. Noel was a chef at the Hilton and in January took a job in Dubai he was there for 2 months and with the Coronavirus was laid off. He is still in Dubai unable to get home due to no flights during the lockdown. Linda was also working but has not been able to work due to the lockdown.  I have been offering to go to the shops for her because she has no one that can take care of her kids. I am hoping that the Big Favour can help her out, please. It would be greatly appreciated."

Nominator Name: Rashid Shaik

Nominee Name: Samantha Govender

"Samantha and Malcolm are a young couple with two small kids. They have recently moved out of their parents’ home to start a life on their own. Samantha has recently found a job in a hair salon and Malcolm works for an electrical maintenance company. Together, their salary just barely pays for their essential bills and food for the month. Then there are their personal needs and the kid's need for school. When the pandemic struck, they did not have the extra funds to stock up on groceries and other essential items required. If this young couple can be chosen, it would mean the world to them and their two little kids."

Nominator Name: Morganie Pillay

Nominee Name: Saloshnie Padayachee

"I would like to nominate my good friend Saloshnie Padayachee who is a Beauty Therapist and works from home. Her only income is from clients she sees at home. Saloshnie has been doing this for many years and it's not always been easy. She in fact nominated her son for the big favour. This shows how big her heart is. Being a single mom has not been easy and I would be very grateful if you would kindly consider this special friend of mine."

Nominator Name: Dylan Daly

Nominee Name: Puvandhri Moodley

"I've known the family for a while and ever since I know them no one in their house has a stable job, the dad and son do small jobs in the local area to try and earn an income and they do not find work all the time, it is evident that they are really in need of financial assistance especially in these times."
