Greetings! My name is Lenie, I'm from South Africa and the eldest of four siblings. I'm a former miss Uniworld fitness South Africa 2019.
What broke the camel's back was when mom realized that underage girls were involved.
I grew up witnessing the emotional abuse my mom endured throughout her marriage to my dad. My parents fought a lot because of my dad's adultery, everytime my dad promised to stop only to repeat it again. It got so worse that my mom found out that he's was not only cheating outside our home, but with our house helpers as well. Our home was supposed to be place where mom would escape the humiliation, but that too was invaded. She had no dignity nor pride in her marriage left yet she kept on hoping that my dad will grow up and that he'll change his ways, she prayed for him a lot. Mom met dad who was 30 years old at the time and already divorced twice when she was just 21 years of age and they've been married for 27 years, mom's first marriage.
They lasted so lo long because she doesn't believe in divorce, the marriage brought her no joy but she perseverance was amazing. She made sure we were always happy as children and everyone visiting us was welcomed with a smile. But my dad will make sure she's embarrassed, he'll start making sexual advances to mom's friends and some family members taking his clothes off infront them claiming to be a nudist. Again mom will talk to him asking him if he's a nudist, why is it only infront of women, then he'll start fighting her accusing her of being jealous and insecure. So his behavior started affecting us as children because it never stops.
Then he got arrested for public indecency where he was exposing himself to primary school girls and their parents reported him to the authorities, the incident he denied to mom but charged by the court. I was bullied at school because my school mate knew what he was doing to school girls and we knew nothing. So mom told him if she finds out that he's exposing himself to young girls or he's ever touched one she'll go straight to child protection unit to report him.
Because mom fought against his inappropriate behavior towards young girls and women now he's punishing her by not helping her to complete our home. The house is still on the foundation level and the community is starting to complain that the site is becoming a nuisance since it's been like this for too long now. So she's under pressure to finish building the house but have no funds. She sold everything she owns including her catering equipment just so she can my Varsity fees and my siblings' school fees, day to day life it's a struggle as everything is so sudden yet she never complains. She even registered for Bolt/ Uber so she can support us.
I humbly request your support to help my mom to finish building our home. Those who can support with material we will be greatful and those with funds we will equally be greatful, as long as we can finish building. We need door, windows, roof and extra bricks.
Thank you in advance and God bless you
