#FRESHDEEDS: Afternoon team, my name is Gabsile a single mother to a 9 months old baby. i
I used to work one day as a domestic worker, the money pays only rent and left with nothing to buy for baby and food,now can't afford to pay rent and buy food more especially for her as there is no work at all. I used to get support from individuals, now it's difficult. I called some few for help I got same answer so I gave up. It's hard and we sleep empty,at the same time both our clothes were stolen,am kindly asking for help with a voucher team to ease the load on my shoulder - it's too much with no support at all! Please help...
Firstly, you guys are just amazing! You are really changing people's lives during this terrible Covid-19 lockdown.
I would like to nominate my brother Arnold and his family. They have lost their home a couple of months back and a friend offered them a place to stay on his plot in Muldersdrift. Arnold is self-employed and does gate automation and electric fencing but as things are getting worse economically for so many people, even before lockdown, he has struggled to find work. He and his family live from hand to mouth (as I know thousands of other do too ... sadly) and with this lockdown he has been unable to try and find any work at all. To survive him and his son are hunting wild rabbits and birds so that they at least have some food to eat. I have been sending them money where I could during April but unfortunately my husband did not get a salary this month and my salary was the only income for my family to survive this month. I am so worried about his kids as his son, Chad who is in Grade 11 but he is unable to do his school work online as they don't have any money for data so that he cannot participate in online school and his little daughter, Jessie, who turned 10 in April was diagnosed a year ago with Cerebal Palsy and attends a Government assisted special needs school. She seriously needs her therapy but with the lockdown this is not happening.
All I am asking is for a bit of food to tie them over, my brother is such a good father and a very hard worker and he is literally skin and bone just trying to work for his kids. I think he even goes without eating so that his kids are able to eat.
My heart is breaking with worry for them and I would be so ever grateful for a little help for them!
Thank you guys are literally Angels of Hope and thank you to Spar! God bless you all!
