Happy Link of Love workers receive their R100

Happy Link of Love workers receive their R100

R100 may not mean a lot to someone earning thousands every month. But to our team of Link of Love helpers in Gugulethu it means a LOT. It means they can go out and help the elderly, clean their homes and spend some time chatting to them. And in exchange they can put a little something on their own tables for dinner.

This is how community organisation Yziani Sakhe reports back to DreamWorker, in their “from the heart” way…..

We went to Fundiswa Ndzima’s house. She is disabled she got one leg. She lives with her children. Her three children are not working, one is at school. Her children left her alone. She really need a help. She was very happy for her house to be cleaned.

Gerald Dunjane is staying in the flat and living alone. He get an old age grant. When we clean his flat he want us to come again for cleaning the walls and painting.  

Zondiwe Stemela is living with her three children and they are unemployed. She is having pains in her leg most of the time. She can’t do nothing. There is no income except for the three children that they getting a child support grant.
