Sikhula Sonke received a donation of building materials from Upset (group of filming companies) and the Sikhula Sonke team took some time on Mandela Day to build a new home from scratch. To finish off the house, we gave it a nice coat of paint (donated by our partner Joint Aid Management, also known as JAM).
Hats off to the amazing work by Sikhula Sonke Team, Ricky, Cheryldene and Thabile from JAM! And heartfelt thanks to Upset for tranforming a shack into a home that is warm, dry and beautiful.
CAN YOU HELP? Is it time to upgrade your double bed? Please consider donating your old one to this family! They are also in need of a single bed for their young 2 children.
This is our project for the day. A quick strat session and inspection needs to happen before we can get started.
Paphama from Sikhula Sonke takes a closer looks at the shack: it's close to collapse.
The owner of the home shows us her neat interior before we start the shack revamp and take down the old shack.
