Please assist. This fund raiser is for families are are in financial need due to unforeseen circumstances and struggle to make ends meet just as in my circumstances.
In Dec of 2016, Hubby had an IOD at work which he never recovered from, leaving him jobless from June 2017. We continued to try to pay all our commitments, but we have been failing dismally.
Hubby started working in May 2018 and things were going to improve. However his first salary was a measly R1000.00 which left us back where we started.
However, life happened and he had a major stroke on the 28th of May, which has left him completely lame on his right hand side and unable to communicate. This has hit us as a shock as he was healthy and it came without warning. I have now even extra costs to contend with, but God is good. He will come through this.
I don't know what to do anymore. I have to make R6500 a month stretch between rental [R3700], power [R800], transport, school fees and food. And I'm really struggling.
There have been days when we've even struggled for food just to eat.
Beside financial assistance, I desperately need single beds for my 3 girls, currently my older girls share an old double bed and my youngest's bed is so wonky that it might fall apart on her at any stage. I really would love to give them all their own beds with bedding.
I feel so bad because I never seem to have enough to buy them new things.
My TV and DVD machine[not working] is 10 years old, my computer about 15 years old [works when it feels like it], my fridge 8 years, my deep freeze 35 years old. My lounge suite and wall unit is falling apart. Basically, everything is old and needs replacement.
I really will appreciate any assistance that I can get. We are a faithful family and truly believe that God will speak to the right people to make our dreams come true.
