The ITHUBA team met with Dikeledi Mmihi on their first stop in the Free-State today. Mmihi has been doing her best to get by in a leaking mud-house in Thabanchu and has been shouldering the world of responsibility looking after her own children, as well as, her younger sibling since her parents passed away in 2009. She is tearful when she says this dream home would have made her parents very proud and happy.
Letia Dijane is an 84-year-old pensioner who hails from the rural township of Koppies in the Free-State. Dijane has been living in her shack for the past 40 years, sharing the space with a combination of her children and grandchildren. The conditions are not optimal for Dijane, with her having to use a bucket for a toilet, no longer able to easily make the far trip to the outdoor facility.
Both women are now being cared for by ITHUBA and can rest easier knowing that their family’s needs will be met.
