Dear Your honourable President I'm from South Africa and is the owner of a community newspaper based to help the poor of the poorest people in our country through a Trust funds I want to establish but because of the funding Ive receive to opened this paper it can not function well because it is very young and it is for free and because of the minimum advertisers their is no money. At this moment I cant pay my staff members their stipends. That is the reason I want to ask your country to help me with some funds to get more staff members and to pay the papers bills like , rent, phone and internet,stipends and distribution and printing . The other thing is we have a big problem with the people who come from Somalia. Nigeria and a lot of other they come and sell their drugs to our young children and when we stand up againsed them our leaders call it Xnofobia. Especialy our brown community ( Coloured's) My tears run from my cheeck's when I telling you this May the GREAT LORD bless you
