If ever anyone needed a ‘guardian angel’ it was Ms S

Not only was this frail 82-year-old left to live as best she could in poverty and squalor – she was expected to take care of her 11-year old grandson as well.

The two had no food. Even if food had been left for them, Ms S was in no state to prepare it. Frail and in poor health, she can barely move. She can’t look after herself or her home … let alone a child who is not enrolled at school.

If not for concerned neighbours, we dread to think what would have happened to Ms S.
