George from Kommetjie
George Mathews (not his real name) had a large and substantial home in Newlands, but in his retirement started suffering early onset of dementia. Using a Power of Attorney, George’s son and daughter-in-law took over his financial affairs and then used his money without his knowledge for a risky business venture.
Nobody knows the details but the son and daughter-in-law are gone and left the country leaving George destitute!
While George had planned well for his retirement today he is now destitute and lives in Kommetjie in a caravan doing his best to maintain himself. He but never complains. Always the gentleman, George is dependent on the support from well-wishers.
George will get a hamper from OMOF four times a year.
