HOMELESS WOMAN’S VOICE NEWSPAPER PLEA FOR HELP FALLS ON GOOD HEART
Moshupa youth have shown that they have a heart.
After reading a homeless woman’s plea for help in The Voice Newspaper recently, the young people came together to mobilise business people both in Moshupa and Gaborone to build Tshamekang Holishwang, 45 a decent house.
Led by an enthusiastic fire fighter Kabelo Rampe, the group has not only contributed their own money towards the project but has also knocked on so many doors that they have gotten most of the building material needed already.
They have also through their face book called Moshville group launched a campaign for donation both in cash and in kind.
Speaking to The Voice in an interview last week, the excited Rampe said:” The story of a mother living in such abject poverty in the midst of plenty was touching to say the least.
Someone had to do something and why can’t it be us, the young people of Moshupa to help her.”
The single mother of six whose house was damaged by heavy rains not so long ago is currently sharing a Red Cross donated tent with the children.
O far according to Rampe some of the businesses who agreed to assist the youth in restoring Holiswang’s dignity include Dladleng entertainment who donated bricks and the builder, Cash Bazaar which is giving away to the family P1000. 00 worth of vouchers for the children’s uniforms, Plascon Paints, Builders Merchants Botswana and Kgale View Spar.
Rampe however said the group was to still contact a lot more sponsors in order to meet the budget to build the woman a 2 bedroomed house.
This week on Wednesday the determined young man went on BTV morning show to sensitive more people about the building project which he expects to commence this weekend, on March 2.
