Hassy lives with his younger brother Leon and his parents, Reds and Leona, in a small 12' X 16' wooden house that was built for them by the Good News visiting builders. It is a lot better than their previous leaking shack which was inaccessible to the wheelchair! However there is not bathroom or kitchen yet, just a foundation ( sponsored by the Ross Salybia Mission Project Students)
Our next step is to raise $500 to finish the septic tank and put in the plumbing for the toilet. Unfortunately Hassys StepDad was digging the hole and "caught a stroke" . He is now very weak down one side and so we had to pay someone to finish the labour.
Hassy tells me that he is a victim of the Storm as his wheelchair was swept away, fortunately not with him in it, and now the brakes are totally damaged. This makes getting to school even more difficult as his mum pushes him a long way to get on the Government school bus on which he goes to Crayfish River to attend the ISULUKATI Centre. He loves the computer and would like to ask the Prime Minister when he will be getting his tablet as he is 14. He really needs a new wheelchair but the tablet is his priority!
Hassy has a sponsor in Scotland who covers his school expenses and sends him a Christmas box every year, but as you can see there are many challenges to overcome.
