Can you help us please?
I didn't want people to think that I'm "poor" but COVID-19 has brought our project to a halt because of furloughing and cut salaries for me and my sisters. Which is why I am here.
My 3 sisters and I grew up in a 2 bedroom, kitchen and dining room matchbox home in a South African township. We lived with my mom and dad (deceased) and because of the way houses in the townships were built by the previous regime, the home had no indoor bathroom facilities. (Yes, millions of people still use a bathing bowl to take a bath here. 😊)
In January, we decided to add an indoor bathroom for mom who still lives in our old home. As you will see from the pictures, we had to raise the roof in order to add the bathroom and this is how far we got. We were also able to get the electrical wiring done. However, the following still needs to be finished:
- bathroom boundary wall and door;
- plumbing to bring water into the house and install a geyser;
- install a shower, toilet and basin;
- coat seal the leaking metal roof;
- reinstall the kitchen cabinets;
- install ceiling boards;
- paint the house.
This is not a vanity project. It was born out of necessity so our mom, who is 71 now, doesn't have to leave the house to relieve herself.
We are hoping that kind hearted individuals will assist us to finish this project. 🙏
Thank you for visiting, 😊
