HELPING AUREL GET ONE STEP CLOSER

20150813_133136

You may remember back in April of this year, we told you of a Crowdfunding Campaign that we ran in conjunction with The Rap Foundation to help one of their beneficiaries, Aurel, secure the rights to his sister’s grave. You can read the original article here.

We are delighted to let you know that Aurel is now the proprietor of the grave after last week paying for the leasing rights to his sister’s final resting place. The grave, in the pauper’s part of the cemetery, must remain under the care of the state until the 7 year holding place is over (in 2019) but he can now look into buying a permanent headstone for the plot. It has always been Aurel’s dream to procure the site so that he will be able to rest with her.

On behalf of Aurel and The Rap Foundation, we would like to thank all of you who donated towards this campaign. Your contribution has made a young chap very happy.
