Ouma Petro for happiness

My name is Michelle and I met a wonderful, kind-hearted lady some time back while hospitalised in Pretoria. We call this lovely lady Ouma Petro, as she is the typical loving person as an Ouma is.
My reason for this fundraiser is to give Ouma Petro a bit of happiness in her older life and less stress with worrying about the financial burden she caries every day, not being able to enjoy life. Ouma Petro's son passed away some years ago in the line of duty. Her life fell to pieces after losing her son and she's been suffering from depression ever since. She still wakes up each day knowing that she won't be able to see her son again.
Ouma Petro is struggling each month to pay for her much needed medication and worrying about how to keep the roof over her head. The funds raised will go directly to Ouma Petro. She will be able to enjoy life and will be able to celebrate her son's life and she is supposed to be able to do.
The funds will be used for Ouma Petro's medication for a few months and a few month's payments for rent for her.
*As per the campaign creator's request, funds raised will be transferred directly to the landlord and relevant medical organisation/practitioner.*
