This week, 52 Lives would like to help a family from Worcester, UK – Lisa, Mark and their 6 week old baby daughter.
Mark is a self employed gardener and handyman, and Lisa is at home with their baby. Business has been slow, so money is very tight. They are getting by, but there is no extra money to pay for anything other than food and bills.
They recently moved into a council house, and scraped together furniture and things for their daughter from Freecycle.org. Unfortunately, the house has no insulation, no carpet and no oven/cooker.
They have been making do with a camping stove to make their meals, and have also been trying to find some second hand carpet for their freezing cold lounge room – without any success.
52 Lives would love to help make their home a bit warmer as the cold weather sets in and, if possible, help them with a proper oven. It really will change this family's life.
