The Lady on the 17th Floor
Met a lady this week from the 17th floor of the building opposite us. The lifts no longer work. She has a 6 year old daughter living with her, barely survives every month on a very small disability grant (R1050) for a medical condition. It takes 30 minutes to walk up the 17 floors with her daughter. She does this twice a day, once to take her daughter to creche, and once to fetch her…Hard times!
