Abel Shabangu

Personal message

Donate Via Snapscan

My name is Steve Lewis from Pretoria, South Africa.

I am raising funds to build a house for a man dear to our family, Abel Shabangu, who works in my garden. We’ve known Abel, his wife and three children for 25 years. He is a hardworking, honest, upstanding family man that does everything he can to raise his family in the best way possible.

Abel has always lived in a tin shack with his family (see the pictures of his shack and family). He has his own small property with water, sewage and electricity, but a simple shack is all he has been able to build.

He has a dream to finally give his family a home they are proud of and feel safe in. I would like to build a small, 3 bedroom brick house for Abel and his family. (see the picture of the plan we’ve developed).

I am a Professional Engineer and have some experience in managing building projects, so I will oversee the project free of charge. I have identified a reliable builder who works in Abel’s area.

The cost of the building is R160,000 (US10,000). I have personally already raised R115,000 (US$7,200), but after extensive research have learnt that we need a further R45,000 (US2,800) to make this building possible.

The funds raised will be exclusively used for the building of the house. Any funds that are raised above the target will be used to improve on the simple finishings that are currently planned for the house.
