RISING FROM THE ASHES
Thabazimbi – When a family of seven in the Ga-Botha informal settlement lost all their belongings in a fire, all hope was lost.
Apostle David Abraham with the support of the mayor of Thabazimbi, councillor Midah Moselane and community members jumped to action to support the family.
Sophia Manganye’s home was destroyed by a raging fire on 11 February. A case of arson was opened, and a suspect was arrested.
The gloomy story of Sophia’s home catapulted the community into action, with Apostle Abraham of the Sanctuary of Restoration Ministry taking the lead.
The Thabazimbi Local Municipality’s disaster management team constructed a temporary relief tent for the family, and the mayor donated blankets, clothes and shoes.
In April this year, Sophia and her family were all smiles when the community handed the keys of a new home to them. Apostle Abraham singled out and thanked the generous gesture of Bosveld Eiendomme, Konstructica,
Thabazimbi Ford, Spur Thabazimbi, Bosveld Buitelug Sentrum, Pick n Pay, McDonalds, Shoprite, Buffel Beton, Jane from Advanced College, Coastal Hire and Becca’s Take Away.
“I would like to thank everyone God used to open the doors of their hearts and helped us with this home, even if I did not mention your name, thank you,” he said.
The Apostle’s next task is to open a shelter for children, named the Father Abraham Shelter in Ga-Botha informal settlement.
