Help the Williams Family Rebuild Their Home

Personal message

The Williams family do have a house in Retreat. The house is in a poor state of disrepair. The roof leaks badly, windows have been boarded up and plumbing and various fixtures have been stolen.

Mary's father built the house and she grew up there. It is a great sadness to Mary that the house has been vandalized and destructed. Vaughn and Tessa are affected by structural unemployment. Mary's income is the old age grant for pensioners. We are looking to raise funds to fix the family's house in Retreat. They will grateful for any donations, as time is not on their side and they will need to move soon.

Roof repairs (including replacing stolen roof struts): R35,000
Plumbing: R12,000
Electrical work and fixtures: R9,500
Bathroom repairs (install toilet, basin and shower): R18,000
Kitchen: R15,000
Flooring: R7,000
Windows and doors: R4,500
Security wall and improvements: R11,000
Painting: R8,000

Your donation will help make the house livable for Mary who is a pensioner and does not have the means to afford the repairs.

Williams Family Home Cause

Williams Family Home Cause Logo

I am Kirsten Pearson, from Cape Town. I am championing a crowdfunding campaign for the Williams family, consisting of Mary Williams (72 years of age), Vaughn, her son, and Tessa, her daughter, who are facing an eviction from their home in Rugby in Cape Town, where they have lived for the past 17 years. They have a home to go to, but it needs a lot of work as it is not currently in a liveable condition.
