Eight People in One House

--by Lezah, posted Oct 22, 2007

I work with a young lady that lives in a house she shares with 8 other people.  Two are children.  None of the other adults have a job.  She supports them with food and everything else they all need.  She earns a very modest salary and they struggle to survive.

Her mother lives with her too.  I have offered her mother domestic work at my house on Saturdays in order to supplement their income. I also supply all old clothes and shoes from my home that we do not use anymore.  I help with food sometimes when I can too.

I believe in helping where you can. I know that I have at least made a difference in the lives of 9 other people over the last few months.
