Ever since the pandemic started, my neighbours were very much affected like everyone else, but the difference was that they were already struggling financially even before. Since the quarantine was implemented, my neighbours were struggling to find a stable source of income, they usually print tshirt logos for schools and reunions which are now not allowed and/or implemented in other ways.
Yesterday, strong winds hit our place and their house was a victim. A whole portion of their kitchen wall was blown away since it was already dangling and was only supported downwards, not just their kitchen, their whole house is in need repairs. Roof full of holes, wooden floors need fixing etc. I was told that their house was build 25 years ago and to this day still standing without undergoing repairs. They told me that they have been saving a fair amount of money for house repairs but had to use the money to purchase food for daily consumption.
Since I'm just a student, I can't help them much but I hope kind hearted people can help them build a new home.
