We are excited to share that our project to help the Nzimande family is complete!

42-year-old Prudence Nokuthula Nzimande lives in the previously disadvantaged township of KwaDabeka, near Pinetown in Durban, South Africa. She shares her home with her family of 10 made up of 5 school-going children and 5 adults who lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sadly, their mother also passed away who had been supporting the family. The national lockdown has further prevented the children from attending school regularly which has affected their understanding of the school work.

The family urgently needed assistance with repairing their plumbing system. Their existing pipes had become worn out and they could not afford to replace them which meant having to go out and fetch water from the municipal supply on the street before even using the toilet.

Having a functioning plumbing system will greatly improve the family’s living conditions and avoid the safety risk of going out at night. Thank you to all who helped to make this project possible!
