Many of you will know of our housekeeper and dear friend Bezunesh. Since we've known her she's had a host of truly awful incidents happen to her - but now she has the chance at a victory that will change her life and that of her children forever.
She's been given an opportunity to purchase a government-built home. It's a tiny 1 bedroom flat that will give her and her 3 children a place that is theirs; removing them from the tyranny of uncontrolled rent rises and potential eviction that is part of life for so many here in Addis.
The outright cost of the apartment is $7000.
She has saved $1500 towards the cost already by herself.
We need to raise around $2000 more for her to put down a sufficient deposit - so that the mortgage will be affordable for her each month thereafter.
We would love to keep the monthly payments as small as possible for her, so every dollar we raise will help.
100% of any money we raise from this event will go towards the housing deposit.
Thank you for your help.
