Financial help sought

Torika Tokalau
Saturday, March 08, 2014

HE lost his six-bedroom corrugated iron and timber home and all of his belongings in a fire on February 3.

Now, living off assistance from various religious groups and his eldest son, 56-year-old Satya Nand urgently needs financial assistance to rebuild his Cunningham home.

"We take everything that we are given — even if the clothes are too small or too big. We will still take them because we have nothing of our own left," he said.

"We appreciate all the help that has been given to us since the fire."

Mr Nand said he appreciated the help his son extended to his wife, his two other children and a grandson by welcoming them into his home.

"But it's not like living in your own home. I would like to rebuild my own home but I can't do it on my own," he said.

"I am hoping that people can assist me financially, I need $10,000 to rebuild my home."

The part-time shoe repairer who is handicapped by a damaged right eye and both his legs said they were still trying to come to terms with the fire incident.

"It has been difficult to take in, one minute we were happy in our home, the next minute we lost everything that we owned.

"Despite everything we are hopeful that we can live on our own again soon."

Financial assistance to Mr Nand and his family can be deposited into their BSP bank account 9845825.
