Appeals & our existing sponsors


PETITION: Please sign the petition. It costs nothing to sign. CLICK HERE TO SIGN THE PETITION

CELLULAR AIRTIME: Anyone who has access to cellular providers around the world who can assist us in getting pre-paid airtime to inmates who have cell phones. We need to find a way to buy airtime here in South Africa but allocate it to a phone in a foreign country. Particularly Digitel in Venezuela, and the providers in Mauritius and Peru. As we are made aware of other cases around the world we may need to find ways to get airtime to other countries too.

MONEY: Donations to this cause are most welcome. Corporate companies are welcome to make a donation and we will be sure to acknowledge you by placing your logo and contact details on our site

TRAVEL: Any travel agents or airlines wishing to donate an air ticket to a family member to visit a detainee would be most welcome.

PUBLICITY/MARKETING: Again, for humanitarian purposes, any help we can get in terms of publicity for this website and the intended campaign will be most welcome. Please contact us if you can help.

IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS: We are "flying by the seat of our pants" here. If anyone has positive and helpful suggestions about what we're doing, please contact us.


"Locked Up in a Foreign Country" has grown at an alarming rate and we have found it necessary to Register as a Non-Profit Organisation. We are currently in the process of setting up a legitimate Trust Fund for the running of the NPO and to assist families and inmates where we can.

At this time we are deciding what area is most critical for any funding coming in. Please contact us if you would like to make a contribution. All contributors will receive mention but those wanting to remain anonymous may do so.

This will be available soon. Please check back here or contact us directly
