Joburg pulls together to assist a listener on Twice the Love
Feel twice the love every Tuesday with Thando Thabethe and Alex Caige on 947 Drive With Thando.
Every week Thando and Alex want to show Joburg residents some real love-love.
An extract from the email sent by Dionysia:
"I am a mum of two beautiful smart and loving boys. I recently lost my job and cannot any longer afford to pay the rent and am forced to move out at the end of the month, my mum offered for us to live with her, but things are bad at home as well as she is a diabetic amputee and blind due to glaucoma and she gets the monthly disability grant which is already enough only for her needs."
Isn't this story so like pulling at your absolute emotions?Cindy Poluta
Some building materials. We are looking for some food. Joburg, if there is anything, it doesn't matter how big or how small... It can be a little cash amount that could contribute to the creation of the structure.Thando Thabethe, 947 Drive with Thando
