Mud House Replaced for Sealoma Family in Thaba Nchu, Bloemfontein
New house built by Batho Ba Lerato Thaba Nchu (Ratlou Location), Archdiocese of Bloemfontein
In the Sealoma household, there are nine people living under the same roof. The head of the
household is a granny of 67 years old who is looking after 6 orphans and an HIV patient.
They live in
a three-roomed mud house which is not in a good condition; they put corrugated iron and old
clothes to cover/close the windows, walls are cracked, the door is not in
a good condition and the floor has holes. Names; (1) Gontse Sealoma, (2)
Selwane Sealoma, (3) Thato Sealoma, (4) Pontso Sealoma, (5) Sylvia
Sealoma, (6) Tsholofelo Sealoma, (7)Teboho Molosi, (8) Gontse Molosi,
(9) Retshidisitswe Molosi.
Their primary source of income is a pension grant and foster care grants.
There is a real risk of the spread of TB in the home.
This household was referred to Batho Ba Lerato by the local Clinic for nutrition/food parcels. We
helped them with some services including shelter and education. During the assessment and home
visits we discovered that Sealoma’s family house was falling down.
