Personal messageSeverely disabled young woman starved and abused - these are the front page headlines of PE Herald on Monday morning, June 3rd You will be moved by the shocking story of cruelty and abuse of a frail, disabled, mute woman who was allegedly raped and left for dead in a rat-infested hellhole in PE Booysens Park. She was suffering: being eaten alive by rats, chewing on her hair and scalp and blood and worms were oozing from her mouth. She was dumped on the side of the road barely alive, but smelled like she was dead. Neighbours said they could hear her screams as numerous men went in and out of the shack. Now non-profit Cheshire Home in Cleary Estate has offered her a safe refuge with open arms and hearts where they will care for her and nurse her back to health She will be homed here on a permanent basis alongside 50+ other severely disabled people who are all residents at Cleary Estate. The Home is run by Hilary Bolton, whose tireless efforts have kept the home open for the past 40 years. Hilary struggles on a daily basis to find funding for the home, but she doesn't let this stop her making an enormous difference. Please help the latest addition to the family at Cleary Estate, Cheshire Home by making a donation. Thank you so much for helping to give this lady her life back. Herald Artcles on the front page:

Cleary Estate Cheshire Home
We focus on the care of people with disabilities who come from very poor homes and communities. Our residents are profoundly disabled as a result of motor vehicle accidents, illness, strokes, acts of violence. They are almost all wheel-chair bound and dependent on care for their existence. Our Home is a residential one and people come to us from the age of 18 on a permanent basis. We do all we can to make life as comfortable as possible for our residents.
We also have a Daycare facility called Happy Feet for 20 severely disabled children from the local community.
