In February 2012, CCJ helped parents to claim their deceased son's provident fund, amounting to R84,000.

The parents first approached Bulwer Support Centre in May 2011, after their son had died from lung disease contracted while working in the mines. They knew that they were entitled to their son’s provident fund, and asked coordinator Patricia Maphanga for help in claiming it. Patricia made sure that they had all the documents needed, such as their son’s death certificate and an affidavit stating that they are the parents, and she sent these with a letter to the Metal Industries Benefit Fund. In February 2012 the fund paid the mother and father (pictured right, with Patricia) R42,000 each.
