A social media user, Musa Mathebula, is aiming to help those who suffer under the rising poverty in South Africa.

Mathebula is the founder of Musa Projects, a Non-profit organization that aims to “create hope and empowerment for those who can’t provide for themselves.

So, on his quest to help better the lives of the less fortunate, Mathebula took to social media to ask help for one family in particular.

“People my NPO is looking for people/donors to support us in building this family of 4 a 2room house in Hammanskraal, pls DM if there is a way you can help us. @Julius_S_Malema @tumisole @imanrappetti @MkhariGiven @EFFSouthAfrica @ThabisoTema @AdvBarryRoux @Sentletse @Abramjee”, he captioned the post.

The tweet received a lot of attention from social media users, whose hearts were touched by the sad images- some even offered to lend a helping hand.

Mathebula’s post gives a glimpse into the tragic living conditions of just one family. Many more households in South Africa suffer under poverty and some do not even have houses.

As reported earlier, a desperate father of seven was photographed building a shack on land that was illegally invaded in Cape Town, because he “needs a home”.
