“The past few years we have struggled in many areas of our life including the loss of our daughter at 5 years old due to heart failure.

Since then my husband’s work has slowed down. He is a contract tradesman and at many times he has to wait for months before getting paid.

We have fallen behind in all areas of payments (house, phone, electricity, rates and school fees) for more than 6 months. I started work just so we could buy food and fuel. The bank then stopped access to all our accounts and my small wage.

A charity was the only place I could access food and fresh produce for next to nothing. It has kept our spirits up and I could buy goods that I would not be able to purchase otherwise for my 6 year old son. Veggies, fruit, fridge and frozen products, even washing powders and some bathroom items. Some of these we’ve had to go without for a while and it’s been so depressing. So thank you for your support. There are many people in need.”
