A stranger has intervened to help a woman and her 18 pets who were going to be left homeless after their rent doubled to €800.
Elisabeth Vassallo spoke to Lovin Malta around a week ago to issue an urgent plea for help for her animals and herself, as the prospect of homelessness became an ever-increasing reality.
However, as reported by The Times of Malta, Vassallo explained how a man stepped in to help her with her predicament.
The house was used by the man’s parents and did need cleaning and maintenance.
“It will be a lot of work and a big change for the animals and me. But I’m thankful I get to keep them,” she said.
Vassallo was forced out of her St Paul’s Bay apartment in recent days after her rent doubled from €400 to €800 per month.
In some indication of a growing homelessness problem in the country, Elisabeth claimed that she knew of a few people in the St Paul’s Bay area who have ended up in the same predicament due to ever-rising costs.
