NORTHRIDING – Hot Cares helps Carol: A Single Mom with 2 Kids
Hot Cares received an e-mail from Carol Viljoen.
Carol writes, “I love Hot919fm not only because you play the best music but you also have a big heart…”
Carol fell on hard times and has been struggling to make ends meet. A few years ago she lost everything she had and was taken into a shelter with her 2 children. She couldn’t find any work and found herself begging at intersections for 5 months.
Carol has managed to find work, which she is extremely grateful for but her monthly salary of R3000, as a single mum with 2 kids, doesn’t go a long way.
Carol is embarrassed to send her children to school with torn clothing and holes their shoes. Carol says her 7-year-old daughter says “ Mum I know we are poor and it’s okay for me to wear torn clothes but Carol knows her daughter is mocked each day in school because of her torn clothes.
Carol knows the end of the year is looming, which means registration fees at school and stationary as well as school clothes.
Carol also says her kids are used to having not much for Christmas, as they know their mum struggles to put food on the table. Currently, Carol has a problem with her fridge, (to most people a fridge is not a luxury item but a necessity, but in Carol’s life she says it is a luxury item.) Her really old fridge stops working every month and she has to leave it off for 3 days and hope and pray it will work again. She says so far, our dear Lord has been answering that prayer. She requested that any help from, Hot Cares, will be greatly appreciated.
Hot Cares is here to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those around us.
- Hot Cares would like to give Carol a brand new DEFY Fridge and Freezer worth R3000.00,
- a R1 000 school clothing voucher,
- a R1 000 grocery voucher,
- Lloyd Madurai had a chat with Santa, who loves Hot Cares, and Santa already has your kids names, Joshua and Raecene (Raycene), on the NICE list. So Santa will be bringing Joshua and Raycene presents this Christmas.
#HotCares have made the delivery to Carol Viljoen.
Hot 919 FM‘s MD Lloyd Madurai along with Carmen Rocha have handed over a brand new Defy fridge as well as food and clothing vouchers.
