Marinda’s new home in George

There are angels among us. Chantale Piquet purchased a new Habitus home for her employee, Marinda, after seeing her living circumstances. Marinda lives with her daughter and grandchildren in Blanco, George, Western Cape. They used to occupy a tiny self-built wooden shack, without ablution facilities or running water.

Her new Habitus home changed her life. This is the first time Marinda has a proper house since living in George. We delivered her house on 29 August 2018. It was assembled within an hour, finished within a day, and she finally settled into her new home – on the same day it was delivered. Her new Habitus home is stable, strong and secure – complete with burglar bars, shower, toilet and kitchen.
