Asking for a little kindess
Dear Christine,A blessed day to you, your family and the staff at THE NATION.
I am 66 years old and suffer with diabetes, high blood sugar pressure and a lot more illnesses. I am writing to request any of your readers who have an old working refrigerator and television, saucepan, frying pan or two chairs to please consider passing them on to me.I would be glad to have them.I received a fridge through you 15 years ago, but now it I know that this time of year people tend to get new things for their house, and I am kindly asking that instead of dumping the old things that may still be good, you pass them onto me.
I cannot buy anything as I don’t get old age pension as yet. I still have to go and apply for that as the Government says you cannot get old age pension until you are 66 years old, and I would be 66 in three months from now. – SLDear SL,I sincerely hope you are successful in your quest for those items this time around as well.I urge you, though, to try to get assistance from the Welfare Department and/or the National Assistance Board. These Government agencies are staffed with professionals who would seek to assist you in whatever way they can. All the best to you. – Christine
