This young family has been deveststed by dilips dearh

he returned to sri lanka to bring up his son and had invested in land for his families future . His untimley death meant that his young wife was left alone to fend for herself

she did not know that he had purchased land until the lender contacted her for repayment , he had borrowed against his land to buy washing machines to set up a launderette business.

his wife located the machines and sold them to replay the loan but still owes £1800 plus interest . We have suggested she try and get an extension on the loan but the lender is putting her under pressure to clear it up . We can help her with a couple of hundred but the lender wants it all

she is desperate , her family cant pay it , but if she can raise the money she can sell the land and begin a new life for her son and her . It wont bring dilip back but at leadt his investment will be back in the hands it was intended for.

thank you

    Hi everyone Although we have privately raised enough money to get the land back for Mehushi and her son they are still in desperate need of help She has advertised the land for sale but still needs money till then It’s not a lot in the global sense and £10-20 quid each will soon give her enough to live off till she sells her land and can stand on her own two feet again Remember guys it’s stoptober so just give the cost of a few pints or packets of fags , it will do more good than you think Thanks in advance Alan
