Having a place to live that fits your family, is not always an easy thing.
A family of 5 that I am friends with and of whom I used to be a neighbor live in a very small appartment with only 1 bedroom.
It is a very small place for a family with 3 children, age 16, 12 and 2. There is not much space to move around. Everybody is constantly bumping into one another and with some furniture in it even takes away any moving space that was there.
Their youngest is just 2 years of age and has a small sleeping corner in the kitchen which is not a good and healthy space to sleep in. The 2 others are in bunk beds in what was offered as a storage room.
Children need their own space, and to run around, a small garden. That is what brings happier children.
The appartment is in an appartment block of 6 levels with a lot of noise coming from the neighbors.The elevator is a danger to step into.
I want to try and help the family in moving into a house, with at least a small garden.
The funds will be used to purchase a house, by preference paid in cash, so the family, that is living on a small allowance and child benefit, not to be lumbered by a heavy mortgage.
Having a place to live, for most of us, is logical. For my friends, each day is a struggle in that small space that houses 5.
Please help my friends find a new place to live where the children could run around and have their own space.
