House No.5 Progress

From a report by Michael Bobbert:

“Construction of what was initially supposed to be an addition of one room to the Ngomane siblings’ house is gradually coming to its completion. When Patricia [care worker and driver] and I initially went to investigate the building site before we began with the construction, I realized that the siblings with the help of their aunt had managed to use their child support grant money to lay down a foundation for two rooms. The family had been using some of their social grant money to buy cement and sand to make bricks.

I then hired the very same builder, Victor, and we agreed on a fee of R5000 for labour, which covered the construction of both rooms that already had a foundation built. Victor promised to build the two rooms, plaster them inside and outside, as well doing some renovations of the family’s existing one room, to meet the newly adopted style of the two new rooms, which will complete it into one whole house.”
