Police ask for assistants in helping a needy family

The dilapidated house.

MECKLENBURG – The local police station is pleading with business people around Tubatse to help with donations to build a shelter for the Swafo family at Ga-Mampa Village. Their three-roomed house was destroyed by heavy rains in December 2015.

According to the spokesman for Mecklenburg SAPS, Const Kgalake Mampuru, the four members of the family sleep in a single dilapidated room as they cannot afford to revamp the damaged one. They use the room as a kitchen and also a bedroom.

“Their parents are no longer together. Their mother is staying in Warmbath while their father has moved in with another lady. Both are reportedly unemployed. The kids are all under the age of 18 and rely on their social grants,” Mampuru said.

The Mecklenburg police are pleading with good Samaritans to help. Those interested in assisting the Swafo family can contact Mampuru on 082-833-2573 or on 015-615-0204.
