<![CDATA[Mondray - work to support his mom and family needed (kirstenhof)]]>Sun, 01 Dec 2019 08:17:14 GMThttp://homelessfriends.org.za/blog-casual-labourers-and-family-support-project/mondray-work-to-support-his-mom-and-family-needed-kirstenhof
I have known mondray a few years now. A few years back social work assistance and counselling was arranged and he did so well... .
he now lives with his mom and 2 sisters and tries to support his family. all he wants to do is any part time work ( the best would abviously be to upskill mondray eventually ..and who knows from connection in part time work things do happen .....Perhaps we can get the word around.

He and family needs all the help we can get . his intention has never been to beg. ( someone also offerred him some money 2 a few weeks ago to clean the sidewalk (he showed me what hed collected so thank you for that ) ive suggested that Modray ask for a short written ref erence wiht phone no ..its a little thing but if we do that for part times it does help- with trust

(( WE need your support-plse use share buttons whatsapp and others ))

thank you to Lea Wyler and rokpa international for the continuing distribution of rain ponchos which were sorely need as workers shown waited in teh rain with no protection for work despite the rain pouring down - .( so far on various projects including for homeless people and workers .

CONTAINERS R100 purchased

have now purchased some containers ot share the sugar and morvite lynn baker kirton generously supplied  but this is still an appeal to get some help for more containers (colleting old yogurt containers etc ) please help in ANY way you can and contact us because this is not sustainable buying plastic conta iners at R2-3 each for this )

SHOES
