In 2002 my mother separated with my father who was physically abusing her and they had a house together with 4 kids, after their separation my mom moved to Cape Town to her family with all of us just to cool herself down. When we came back our Father had already left the town and he sold our house. My mother tried to fight this but she was not successful, when she tried to apply for an RDP house her application was declined since her ex-husband sold their initial house. We have been trying to get on the housing list for many years now and it is unsuccessful. The conditions we live in are unbearable at all, my mother turns 50 in December and it has always been my dream for her to start her Gold jubilee in a proper house. She has been through a lot and we also have been through a lot as a family. Living in a shack sometimes make you feel less confident in some spaces and it is really not a healthy environment to grow up in.
Please help make my dream a reality.
