On 30th May 2013 three houses burnt down in the settlement next to the Digteby Estate, Stellenbosch, South Africa. One housing an elderly gentleman, one a family with two children aged 8 and 16, and one a mother with her two adult sons.
The mother of the family of 4 is our domestic worker. These people lost everything apart the clothes on their backs. We are raising funds to support them and help them get back on their feet. To help them with food, clothes and eventually permanent accommodation.
The people in the photo are our domestic worker (Yolande) and her 8 year old daughter (Keesha) in front of their burnt down house.
Our aim is to raise GBP3,500 so they can buy a new wendy house to live in. GBP3,500 buys a 42sqm two-bedroom wendy house with a bathroom.
Any donation, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated.
