I have met a lady who has fallen on tough times, and she needs our help. She is such a wonderful, caring, helpful person, but her experience of late have left her exhausted and desperate.
A lot of really hard stuff has happened to her and her family over the past few years - including losing their first born child. Thankfully, they pulled together and worked through this tragedy, and are now raising a beautiful 3 year old boy.
Among a lot of other unfortunate events just recently, the family's only car was stolen last week - while her husband was wiating in line at the traffic department to apply for a better driver license in order to help him try and find a better job to support his family. Also in the boot of the car were the few items that t hey had manafed to purchae for their young son for Christmas gifts.
Due to financial constraints the car was not inusred, and now, both her and her husband have to get lifts or walk to get to work. Given how far they work fromtheir home, it is not viable to Uber to work, and the local taxis still take them only near to their destinations, and they have wo walk the rest the way. As a mother, the thought that your child may need you and you have no way of getting to them quickly must be terrifying.
The last few weeks has left this family devastated and exhausted, and out of options.
Linda is really a hard worker, and a genuinely good person, but works in the beauty industry, and unfortunately does not earn enough consistently to get finance and they do not have savings.
I'd like to raise money to help her to buy a scooter, so that she can get to work easier instead of needing to walk 5+ km's each day to get to work.
She spends all her time helping other women and me feel beautiful and special... I think it's time that I (and anyone who is able to help) helps her to feel special and cared for.
If we are unable to reach the target, we would like to still give this money to Linda and her family to hopefully assist with transport costs or to use towards purchasing a vehicle.
Please help with anything you can... Every little bit helps and hopefully we can help take some of the load off by this Christmas :)
