Keep our lights on and danger out

Keep our lights on and danger out

Personal message

Dear Friends of Siyazama,

After noticing that three of the sockets at our facility were not working properly we called in an electrician to survey the overall situation at our centre. When the electrician had a look he noticed multiple dangerous points: sockets which were melted on the inside and problems with exposed wiring as well as lamps not correctly wired. Obviously we do not want our beloved elderly centre to burn down one day due to faulty electric lines, so this measure has become a priority for us. Our electrician has reduced his fees significantly inorder to accomodate us as a charity but we will still be confronted with a bill that is hard to pay on top all our other expenses.

We are greatful for any and all contributions to our bill.
