A pensioner’s hopes and dreams for her family are coming true as she has been promised much-needed renovations to her family’s home following severe storm damage. The Collen Mashawana Foundation shared that they would be financing the upgrading of the deserving family's home.
In 2017, Rebecca’s Bekkersdal home was damaged in a storm, resulting in a number of broken windows, a leaking roof and cracked walls. Rebecca lives in the two-bedroom house with her grandchildren, constantly worried about their safety and what would happen if another storm or severe weather were to cause further damage.
Now, Rebecca doesn’t need to worry about such problems, thanks to the Collen Mashawana Foundation, which promised that within a month, Rebecca and her grandkids’ living conditions would improve drastically, Briely.co.za learned.
