BACKGROUND: Bianca Smith is the proud new mom of a friendly three-month-old baby-girl, Shelby. Little Shelby was born less than a year after Bianca married her husband, who turned 30 in May. It was the start of a new chapter for this hairdresser from Pretoria. The joy of the new baby was however overshadowed by a tragic event in November. Bianca’s husband committed suicide in their bedroom. Bianca and Shelby were visiting her mom, when she couldn’t get a hold of her husband and he wasn’t at work either. Bianca went home and found him hanging from the ceiling in their bedroom. 

While Bianca should still be on maternity leave, after the financial set-back lockdown has caused in the hairdressing industry, she moved back in with her mom and keeps life together for the three of them with freelance hairdressing. Bianca’s friend Lenie, wrote to Good Morning Angels to help this young widowed mom, who has lost so much in a time that was supposed to be full of joy preparing for their first Christmas as a family of three.

If anyone can please assist with a food voucher or anything to lift the financial burden. Her world is upside down. 

Please help her.
