"Pictured on the left is our CEO of RAEL Kurt Schüler who I have known for over a decade. He came to RAEL for the second time over 2 years ago. He was almost dead and has been in many rehabs around South Africa. Kurt is one of the most educated from life experience in being a leader. His story should be made into a movie. He is a father of 2 and he got married on the RAEL Farm on the
28 November 2020. God has RESTORED him to full health and is one of the finest leaders I have seen in my life. 

He lives to help the still suffering Addict. AMAZING GRACE HOW SWEET THE SOUND. Heroin wanted to take Kurt's life but God had other ideas for this fine man." #RAELOrganization #UnitingFamilies #SavingLives #LifeAfterAddiction


Angus started his program of recovery over 16 months ago at the RAEL Farm. In this time Angus studied and became a qualified carer. He is fully employed by Mr Anthony David Hall taking care of Mrs Hall senior who loves Angus to bits. 

Thank you Dr Riana Du Toit for your special care and interest in Angus. Watching Angus change was rewarding. Pictured with his Dad Pastor Kearney Malgas (left) and Mrs Hall senior (right). #RAELREHAB


"I've walked a road of destruction, been to dark places that I never knew existed, ending up homeless and what people call scum of the earth, "The lowest of the low" I've pushed trollies and dug in rubbish bins for pure survival. I celebrate nearly 6 years of a new sober life, there's many to thank I don't want to leave anyone out. 

SO much has changed and happened and I've over this time learnt that there are people that will STAND by you and people that have LOST ALL sense of humanity. Thank you to my whole family for EVERYTHING. My girlfriend Lindsay, you have blessed me with priceless love, support and a beautiful daughter. Kurt Schüler thank you for taking my nonsense in my growing process and never 
giving up on me, you've inspired and motivated me.

Anthony David Hall if there are words to express my gratitude I don't have them. You sir, have selflessly grown and groomed me in ways no words can describe. I'm speechless for the road you have walked with me, the ways you have supported, carried, and stood by me in ALL kinds of ways UNCONDITIONALLY is indescribable. You Mr Hall have been right by my side every step of the way 
of my transformation and I'm so truley grateful for humam beings like you sir.

People like you are very far and few to find sir. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. 6 years later." - Graeme Van Rensburg #RAELREHAB


Adi hasn't stopped surprising us at The RAEL Organization with his achievements
and progress over the 29 months. Anthony Hall opened the doors of RAEL to this
young man and he just hasn't stopped excelling in his new way of life. 

Adi is completely reunited with his proud family and is full time employed.

CONGRATS... Gladwin Coetzee who found his recovery on the RAEL Farm celebrates 
over ONE year Sober. What a miracle against all odds. GOD Bless you #RAELREHAB



Albert (Junior) was taken in and fully sponsored by Anthony Hall head 
and founder of the RAEL Organization. According to our Dr Riana Du Toit 
Junior was days, maybe hours away from death. 

We had our struggles Junior but in the bigger scheme of things your very 
life was saved by these 2 God sent people, when there was not a soul on 
the planet that would give you a chance to recover, but these 2 people 
invested in your life & helped you change to the healthy person you are. 

Never forget where you come from #RAELREHAB


Seeing a human being like Luandre Lucas recover from addiction is a gift
I've been blessed with. The outward is only a small part of what happens
in recovery... When the addicted person and the family heal and reunite
its like hitting the jackpot, this time we've beat the drug dealer. 



Grant 'Booga' Van Rensburg a few months ago homeless, jobless and hopeless.
Proud of the change you made from that life to being a productive member 
of society. Your story shares hope to what might seem a hopeless situation.

This is what happens when you want recovery.

Well done God Bless.#RAELREHAB


Henning Viljoen who found his recovery on the RAEL Addiction Recovery Farm
a few years ago. What a transformation of this man by God's Grace. 
He is a top singer who has just played in the Eno Adams show

Henning got married to his beautiful partner Nadia in December. He has a 
beautiful family who support him. I am so proud of this young man. 
God Bless you. #RAELREHAB #ODAAT


I have known this man for well over a decade. He was at RAEL many years
ago and left to maybe test the theory. He has been back on the farm for
a good while, recently became a father again and is one of the finest 
teachers of addicts I have ever met. 

I'm proud that I have such a capable, well mannered, loyal man by my side.
It's rare to find dedicated staff who have passion for people. I love you
Kurt Schuler and am so proud of you, as you turned away from deaths door 
and fought back. You are an example to all Addicts AROUND the world. 

Proud to have you as Manager of RAEL. Your road to freedom has been one 
of the hardest we have ever seen. Heroin was your master but no more. 


RAEL Sober Living member Graeme Van Rensburg came into RAEL just 
5 years ago. He was broken by HEROIN. He went to the streets after
being involved with Gangsterism and then Addiction took hold. 

He is now a Qualified Panel-beater, has bought himself a motor vehicle, 
still lives on the RAEL Farm and works in the town. He is an amazing 
testimony to Gods Grace and mercy. This young story must be shared 
to give a world hope that is being destroyed by Drugs and Alcohol. 

We love you young man and proud of you. #RAEL #AmazingGrace


Justan Tyler Potgieter arrived on the RAEL Addiction Recovery Farm a few 
years ago to start his recovery to a new life free from Drugs. The Man 
is a gentle giant with a wicked sense of humour. He came to the farm on 
a mission to get his life right and left his mark here. 

He left and great things started happening in his life. He married his 
sweetheart Toska who stood by him every inch of the way during his stay 
on the farm.They've had 2 little babas to add to their family and has 
completely turned his life around. We keep in regular contact and he 
always had amazing support from his Parents and family.

This man is one of a kind as he goes from success to success. 
A beautiful stunning family living the dream. God Bless you for doing 
all the hard work to get and stay Drug free. We love you like a Son.


Freddie Carse came to RAEL Addiction Recovery Farm five years ago 
after being to rehabs for 17 years and having implants to try and stop 
his Addiction. We are so proud to have played a part in his new life. 

He has a wonderful wife Jacqui, a wonderful business, had a son and 
named him after me, what an honour. Freddie visits RAEL Sober City 
regularly and he shows HEROIN Addiction CAN be beaten. 

We love you and so proud of you! You are blessed with a lovely lady, 
Mom and Dad. True story of HOPE. #RAELSoberCity



A MIRACLE TO SHARE! Stian Mostert came to RAEL over 7 years ago 
to start his recovery. He had used Drugs till it broke him completely. 
RAEL was founded in 2007 but only started RAEL Sober City in 2011.

Stiaan started to recover and turned out to be a man who can do 
anything with his hands. Wonderful young man was developing before 
us and a man with the hardest work ethic I have met. 

His lovely helpful parents Mossie and Ronel did so much for us, 
we were new to Worcester and this family would always help us in 
every way, Their kindness will never be forgotten by us. Stian today 
over 7 years later is married with children and completely drug free. 

We are so proud of him and his lovely wife Marluscha, they also had 
their wedding on the RAEL farm, we wish you long life. God Bless you 
as living proof that no matter how destroyed you were anyone can change.



AGAINST ALL ODDS! This man's story should give a broken world HOPE

Kyle Richardson found his recovery on the RAEL Addiction Recovery 
farm almost 7 years ago. He had a long battle with Addiction but n
ow has employment and his stunning supportive family with him. 

The world gave up on him but God did not. This is one of the most 
amazing recoveries we have even been blessed to witness. 

Well done Kyle and keep doing the next right thing and the next 
right thing happens. God Bless you on a amazing journey, he recently 
bought his own car. Wow rewards of sobriety! #RAELOrganization



Riaan van Rooyen came to start his recovery at RAEL in 2015. 

He was lost and his life after having a top job in the corporate 
world was destroyed by Drugs. I saw this mans character from the 
day he came in as it was the same day my beloved dog Tyson died. 

Riaan worked hard on his recovery and with the support of loved 
ones he was determined to change. He is one of the kindest most 
beautiful souls one can meet. His manners and respect levels are 
something to be admired. He accomplished all he needed to do, 
today Managers a big chain of stores and reunited with family. 

It was a absolute pleasure to see this man grow into where he 
is today. Riaan keep doing the next right thing and we all very 
proud of you. Your legacy and artistic talents are on the farm 
for all to see including the beautiful Memorial you did for 
Tyson and the Eagle Mosaic at our entrance. God Bless you.



Jan Francois Destroo found his recovery on the RAEL Farm and is 
over 3 years Sober is the classic story of a Mom putting in tough 
love. His mom Malena had to decide to either watch her son die 
from drugs or do the ultimate tough love which is a book on its 
own. She stood by him all the way as people had written him off. 

He came to us torn by Drugs and by Gods Grace he slowly found a 
new life. A stunning young man and beautiful Mom and family.

Today Jan has a wonderful job with Beyers Transport and who is still 
a friend of RAEL. Jan has grown into a fine man free from the evil 
of Drugs. Thanks Mom and brother Steyn for your stance and prayers 
in saving this young mans life. Shared to give all struggling HOPE.




Richard Ferreira arrived at RAEL over two years ago. 

Richard became a Springbok wrestler today and is one of the finest

Richy we are all so proud of you & how you have grown into a 
lovely young man. God Bless you all. #RAELSoberCity #RAELREHAB
