More Than Just a Carpet
23rd July 2021
This lady has had to move to a safe house after several difficult situations. She has felt very lonely and isolated, as she is not able to contact friends of family. The support and hope brought about by the carpet given by Acts 435 donors has enabled her to feel more settled and valued. Here is what she said to the donors who gave towards her request:
"I have just cried. I don't know who you are but you have made me feel like my life could be about to start going right. I know that's stupid to think that about some carpet but every day I look at the concrete floor and have to wear my shoes with my pyjamas to get in and out of bed and it makes me feel so dirty and useless. When my support worker told me what you had done and took me for a surprise to go and choose some carpet and get the man to come over to measure my room, it was like my birthday and Christmas and winning something good all together. I'm so excited about it coming and I'm looking forward to living here. It's been tough because I can't have any contact with anyone in my family or friends and I don't know anything about this place I'm living in now. It's for my safety but it's hard. Having a comfy home is going to really help me settle in more and you have made that possible for me. I have dyslexia so I can't write this properly but I've asked my support worker to type it for me and I hope you know you are like angels. Thank you."
