A lady with a big heart.
A few years back, a couple rented the garden cottage in anti Joyce's yard. They would regularly ask her to babysit their boy. One day they asked her to look after him, and they simply never came back to get him. Although she has a mayor financial disposition, and not in great health, she took him in as her own, to the point he does now call her mom.
Joyce has an extremely small income, and is mainly living of rental of cottage and small government grants. Her budget is so tight she can't take the boy to school because of high petrol costs, so he has to start walking from 5:50 in the morning.
March 2023 a family moved into the cottage that never paid rent and ramped up electricity to the point her electricity has been switched off since Aug 2023, she now owns the municipality R30 000.
Me, Marius Erasmus (writer of this) will be moving in from October, and I'm prepared to take on some duties and responsibilities to help her through this tough time.
