A South African old woman, 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.
