Here's Sandra's story...
Sandra Naidoo is a 54-year-old single mother. She got married at the incredibly young age of 16, and endured many years of abuse at the hands of her husband. In 2001, she said “enough is enough”… she took her children and came to Joburg to start a new life. Sandra’s eldest child – her soon – stepped up and became a father figure and role model to his siblings. He also became Sandra’s greatest supporter and source of strength. In 2005, he passed away in a car accident at just 23 years old, which left Sandra a broken woman. Her life has never been the same, and her daughter Joanne wants Sandra to have a break. As a single mom herself, Joanne, simply can’t afford to treat her mom to the break she so desperately needs.
Her daughter, Joanne, asked Greg & Lucky to grant her mom a much-needed break for being a supermom...
Greg & Lucky got together with our good friends over at the Maurtius Tourism Promotion Authority and the Flight Centre Group and asked them if they would be willing to help us and they were absolutely in.
Here's what happened when Sandra heard about this...
