- A woman lived in a shack that was busy falling apart in Matsakali village
- Through the aid of a kind pastor and other donors, the woman is getting a new home
- Photos of the before-and-after transformation were shared via social media and revealed a beautiful home under construction
The reality in South Africa is that most citizens cannot afford to buy or build their own home.
With the demand for housing always on the increase, the wait for a RDP house can last a lifetime.
As a result, many South Africans who are living in poverty, are forced to reside in shacks and this was a reality for one struggling woman, living in Matsakali village.
To make matters worse, Briefly.co.za gathered that her shack was in bad shape and needed some repair work.
Fortunately for her, Pastor Eric Maluleke was sent her way. With the assistance of other donors, the pastor is in the process of building the woman a new home.
Twitter user Tonny Myambo (@RivalaniMyambo) shared before-and-after photos, which included her current dwelling and the new home that’s under construction.
Although not fully complete, one can sense the new home will be beautiful and solidly built.
The tweet went viral as South Africans reacted positively to the news.
Mordecai: Esther's Foster Father (@SontiMxolisi) said, “I'm so touched. When I see people collectively doing service delivery. May God bless you all. May he shine his face upon you. All those who have given may your well never run dry.”
