Dugmore says he is so inundated with requests he seldom puts out personal requests but says Sibongile is such a wonderful person and has come so far.
Some assistance had come in over the past few days but then on Wednesday night, Solly and Zohra Noor of the Solly and Zohra Noor Foundation donated the entire R50,000 needed to complete Mbhele's studies.
