Ms. Thomas’ old home was an abandoned shack where she was living without permission.

Her story moved the Rotary Club to assist her in getting a new home and finance was provided by partners in Canada, with labour from prisoners at the Central Prison at Hattieville.

The two-bedroom home is equipped with utilities, new beds for Thomas’ teenage sons, kitchen appliances and utensils.

They will move in on Friday.
