POWER UP PROJECT

Personal message

Johan is vulnerable to thieves and other vagrants who consistently steal His possessions and food.

His situation is very disturbing, as he is almost 70 years old, and has been living in a tent at a railroad track with lots of Bush around him, many vagrants walk the tracks, and as he lives in a tent, he is very easily robbed of his few possessions, regularly by means of the thieves cutting his tent open if he is not at the site.
It is also very dangerous for him as one can imagine.

Over the past 2 years since we have moved onto our property across the road from Johan, we have come to know him, and he is a genuine person, except very poor and cannot afford to pay a rental for a room, that would mean he would not be able to eat then, so he has had to go to this level of accommodation, which I find very sad, and would like to help as much as I can, and that is to offer a bottom roadside corner of my property for a place of safety for him. This is where the Wendy house would be placed for him.

I am also a pensioner, so have no funds to buy the Wendy house, but am willing to offer the safety of a fenced property to him, also with providing electricity and water.
There is an existing toilet which was used for labourers during the house construction, I have left that there in anticipation of this idea materialising.

This is quite urgent now, as with winter here, rainy season is also approaching, and my concern is his age and frailty, I would really be happy to see Johan in a warm environment and place of safely, as he has been robbed many times of all his possessions.

Should the full amount not be reached, perhaps material could be bought and I would get others to help build a suitable living structure.

*Funds raised will be transferred directly to the Wendy House supplier*

My neighbour is a pensioner.  His name is Johan he is 69 years old and lives in the Bush.  He gets a  state pension of R1780 per month.I am fundraising to get him a wendy house and out of the Bush as he has no water electricity or a toilet. He can stay on my property across the road.
