Personal message

Letitia Mpameane (46) is the sole breadwinner for her family and they live in a single room rented house in Soweto, Johannesburg.

The family dependent on her are her 17-year-old son, elderly mother, her sister and her two small children. That is six people in one room - all on a monthly salary of R5600 p/m.

Letitia joined my mother's guest house in 2015 and was finally able to start saving to build a house. After my mother passed away in 2018, Letitia came to work in our business as an office cleaner.

In late 2018, she was finally able to start building her family home. Unfortunately, the money has not been enough to complete the home. She still needs to finish plastering, install the ceilings, and tiling. We would love nothing more for Letitia and her family than to realise their dream of a home to call their own and are asking for any donations, no matter how small, to help her achieve this.

She is building the house in the Eastern Cape and plans to move her mother and sister there and then move there herself when she retires.

*Funds raised will go directly to the relevant contractor and Builders Depot for supplies*
