Think of a £10 or $10 donation as buying a brick in the home of the Mafira Family!
Fredrick and Faustinah Mafria have been living in their rented home for 15 years and have raised their 3 children in it. Their dream to build a home of their own on a plot of land they purchased has never come to fruition. They had sufficient funds only to lay the foundation. Now, the house that has been their home for most of their children's lives is about to be sold and they will be out on the street.
Their landlord has given them first option to purchase, but they have no idea how they will raise all of the money by the deadline of the end of October 2021.
They have a potential buyer for their plot, which will raise half of the cost of the $27,000 the buyer has asked for, and urgently need to raise the balance.
The house will not only continue to provide them with a roof over their heads, but they will then also be able to earn some income from renting out a room to another family.

Valued in their community
The family work tirelessly within their community, counselling other members of their Church, and the volunteer for FeedZimFund for whom they identify the needy and distribute food parcels.
