On April 13th 2020 the Africa Unite team was made aware of a dire situation involving a pregnant refugee woman who along with her two-year-old son and husband were in desperate need of accommodation.
Rosy, the woman in question has been living together with her husband and their two-year-old son in the streets next to the Methodist Church Cape Town alongside many other refugees. Recently, the refugees have been relocated to the Police Station.
Rosy gave birth to a baby boy at Somerset Hospital on the 5th of April 2020. The family was informed that they must find a place to stay by the 16th of April 2020 otherwise a social worker will take their new-born child.
The main issue is that the family does not have enough money and resources to
find accommodation, buy baby clothes and food for their little ones. Our team has attempted to find shelter, but unfortunately without any success. Many shelters in Cape Town are either full or are not taking in new people due to COVID-19.
Time is running out and our hands are tied. We are doing everything in our power to prevent the baby from being
taken away from his mother, however, to achieve this we require assistance.
Both the family and our team would be utmost grateful if you could consider assisting us in any way possible.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
