- A woman, Rosalind Packer, is raising money to build her domestic worker a new house
- She revealed the heavy rainfall in KwaZulu-Natal damaged her helper's mud house and the entire family now resides in the one remaining room
- Packer decided to help the 49-year-old single mother by building a new house
A woman, Rosalind Packer, has already raised more than R33 000 to build her domestic worker, Nonhlanhla Ndlovu, a new house.
"She is one of the most amazing women I know – a 49-year-old single mother of two, without any family to help support her. Nonhlanhla has worked for my mother and I for almost 10 years and is the most wonderful, sweet and hard-working lady," Packer wrote on the BackaBuddy page.
The kind woman revealed Ndlovu's house had suffered damages during the recent rainfall in KwaZulu-Natal.
The single mom and her entire family now have to share the single remaining room in the mud house.
"This room is being held up by a flimsy, damaged wall made of rotting sticks, which may give way at any moment," she revealed.
Packer revealed Ndlovu is having trouble sleeping at night due to fears that the fragile construction might collapse on her and her family at any moment.
The domestic worker had already laid foundation for a new home, which would take several years to build as a result of financial shortcomings.
Packer was moved by her helper's dire situation and she decided to help. She bought blocks to build a new home but she too does not have enough money to complete the entire project before the next rainy season.
"I wish I could cover the full expense, but I simply cannot do it alone," she admitted.
Briefly.co.za learned the new project is a simple structure that would provide a safe space for Ndlovu and her children.
Packer has already raised a third of the money she needs but the target she is trying to reach to fund the construction of the new house is R100 000. You can donate by clicking on the BackaBuddy link.
