A mother and her two special needs adult children are pleading for assistance to complete their home.
Omawatie Mohammed- Haynes, 42 and her sons Renaldo Mohammed, 23, who has cerebral palsy Sadapha Bowman, 26, who has Autism shares a small shack with her husband Leslie Haynes, 63. Both Mohammed-Haynes and her husband are not employed and make a living from selling garden produce.
In 2018 a hog-plum tree fell on their home and the family used what little they saved to start the construction of a small concrete structure at their Yvonne Trace, Todds Station Road, Todds Road, residence. Mohammed-Haynes said she managed to scrape aside some funds from the disability grant she gets for Renaldo and Sadapha to go towards the house.
She said after the tree fell, she pleaded for assistance through Guardian Media and members of the public assisted her to construct a roadway to her house. The mother of two said her family is now once again making a desperate plea to the public to donate what little construction materials they can so they can have a roof over their head before the start of the rainy season.
The area already has a concrete foundation and the family has managed to purchase some bricks.
Neighbours and well-wishers have so far assisted her with the construction process.
Anyone wishing to help Omawatie and her family can reach out to them at 349-5510.
