A South African gogo, Florah Masakona Munyai had been living in a mud house from 1998 before the Collen Mashwana Foundation built her a beautiful home.
Community leaders in Mamuhohi Village in Venda introduced the 67-year-old to entrepreneur and philanthropist, Collen for the first time in August 2018.
It was during this time that he was briefed about her circumstances, living conditions, and assessed the state of the mud house she was living in. The foundation committed to come back and assist.
Flora, unfortunately, lost her eyesight in 2004 and has since survived through grants. The foundation kept its word and the elderly lady is currently living comfortably in her new 2-bedroom home which is one of the best-looking houses in the community. She was also donated a borehole that serves the community with clean water.

Wofa Yaw: 65-year-old Ghanaian Blind Man Living in Mud House Gets New Self-contained Apartment
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that after years of living in a dilapidated mudhouse under deplorable conditions, 65-year-old blind Wofa Yaw from Pekyi-Tweapeasi in the Ashanti Region has been given a new house.
Before the gesture, he lived in a muddy thatch in extreme poverty under heart-wrenching conditions, going without food for days sometimes.
The fate of the aged man with visual impairment received a glimpse of hope after his plight came to the attention of the Bernard Nketiah Ministries. Then, the journey to provide him with a dignifying accommodation began.
