39-year-old Lucy more than 20 years living in an apartment building in London. And next door lives a grumpy grandmother, all these years Lucy only found out the name of the neighbor.
Eccentric neighbor did not communicate with neighbors and never let into his apartment. Once Lucy thought the elderly woman might need help and no one to ask.
The woman tried several times to speak with a neighbor, offered to help. Finally, the lady trusted her so much that he opened the door. But it took several years until Lucy was not allowed to cross the threshold of the apartment.
And what she saw was worse than her worst expectations.
The floor was covered with mud, the furniture and clothes were old and leaky.
In the kitchen there was almost no food.
The older woman hadn’t had a bath for 13 years! And slept on a dirty mattress on the floor.
And Lucy got down to business. Together with her 14-year-old daughter a few days she worked to clean the apartment. They threw the furniture and spent over 60 hours cleaning until the room began again to resemble the human’s dwelling.
A woman posted a message on Facebook and asked friends to donate unwanted items, furniture, kitchen utensils for a neighbor. But she did not expect that reaction will be so violent! Her message went viral today, soon it was read by all the neighbors literally lined up to fill the old lady’s house with all necessary. Just one day they collected 80% of the necessary things that Lucy has listed in his message.
Just a few days the woman had a good bed, clean linen, beautiful furniture, new clothes. She had new friends who came to visit her and cook for her food.
Now the residents of this house live in perfect harmony. And they say that people in big cities don’t like each other and don’t want to communicate. Maybe they just need a reason to show kindness.
