Verity Maud volunteers her time at the Home of Hope in Cyrildene, but recently their DB board exploded so she reached out for help… and help is what she got!
Johannesburg, South Africa (13 February 2020) – The Home of Hope in Cyrildene is a safe house for survivors of sex-trafficking and abuse. The young women that live there take back their power, head back to school and start to live their lives to the fullest.
Many of the young ladies struggle to make ends meet but together they survive. Verity Maud does some pro-bono work for the home and wanted to lend a helping hand after disaster struck. Their DB board went up in flames which left the young ladies without power, which isn’t ideal!
Verity took to the Facebook Group “I Know A Guy” to ask if anyone could help them repair the problem.
“Hi, all. I am looking for an electrical company who are willing to do a good deed and donate time and materials. I do a lot of pro-bono work with a home for girls called the Home of Hope in Cyrildene. They are survivors of sex trafficking and abuse.
Their DB blew up and they have been told that the wiring in the whole house needs to be re-done. There are 30 of them living there, all high school and obviously in need of electricity to study, cook etc.
They struggle to make ends meet at the best of times and really cannot afford this. Is there anyone who is willing to help….? We also need to replace this ceiling panel due to a burst geyser” – Verity Maud
Quickly electricians and plumbers started offering their services. One gentleman even offered to donate a temporary power solution while the work is being done.
An electrician has offered to do a full assessment free of charge. Others have offered their labour and time for mahala but as this project is so big, it may need a few collaborators. If you would like to get involved, you can contact the Home of Hope here or chat with Verity on her Facebook post here.
It is so heartwarming to see people rally together to help those in need!
In times of tragedy, always look for the helpers… they are the heroes we need to celebrate!
