Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
My name is Kristine and I’m here to ask for your help. My parents house is in need of major renovations and in part rebuilding as for many years my parents could not afford to look after the property!
My parents still live in my family home, where they raised 9 children. We were by no means a wealthy family as money was often little and only enough to feed the children. My farther was in poor health due to sustaining serious injuries while working. Meaning things were always hard for them.
The family has saved some money to fix a portion of the roof and some other basic things. However I fear that I cannot do the rest alone, I’m asking for donations to help me ensure my parents are comfortable and have a better quality of life! So that they are warm in the freezing winters and can after many years have running water and flushing toilet in the home.
At present water is collected from the well 25 meters away from the home ! My parents are using wood to heat the home and cook food!
In winters the house gets very cold as the walls are thin and lacking proper insulation so all the warmth escapes in a few hours leaving them cold and uncomfortable.
My parents do not want to move away from this property as it has given shelter for so many years , they love the place surrounding the family home even though they live in tough conditions! I do not want that my parents accept this as a norm and live in such a challenging and unpleasant environment so for this reason I need your help.
The cost of fixing, rebuilding, materials and paperwork is very high, I cannot tell how much I would need, but at the moment any amount of money will be highly appreciated!
Thank you very much for your support.
