The Lad, a former homeless man living on the streets of London, is currently selling his “Wife and Kids” (WLC) room at the top of a hill in London’s East End for around £2,400.
The Lad is selling his new house on a hill for £2.1 million ($2.7 million) in London, with the proceeds going to homeless charity One Walk.
The WLC house is situated in a one room apartment with only a bathroom.
It has no furniture, so it can’t be rent-free.
But the Lad has made a small donation of £1,000 to the charity, and the money has been used to cover his living costs.
The house has been a constant source of frustration for the Lad.
“My family’s lived here for years and I feel like I’m wasting my money.
They’ve been so supportive, but I don’t know if they’re doing it for me or not,” he told the Lad Bible.”
I don’t feel like it’s for me.
I’m just doing what I feel I need to do to make ends meet.”
The Lad has lived on the street since he was 17 and has struggled to make a living from the streets, even after moving to London from Wales in 2014.
In 2016 he went through a crisis, when his house caught fire and he was forced to flee to the countryside.
“The fire was the biggest thing that ever happened to me,” he said.
“I had no money, no food, no money in my pocket.
I was homeless.
I couldn’t afford to feed myself and my children.”
One Walk is a charity that aims to end homelessness in the UK.
Its founder, Peter Taylor, said that the Lad’s plight was “absolutely heartbreaking”.
“It’s so easy to be homeless when you’re just on the edge of your support network, and then suddenly you find out you have to go out on the front streets,” he added.
“When we started, there were thousands of homeless people in London.
But now there are almost 2 million homeless people across the UK, and our work in this area is so crucial.”
One Walking founder and director of One Walk Sarah Wren told The Lad that One Walk would be “willing to support and provide temporary accommodation” for the homeless in London who had applied for the WLC.
She also said that One Way Home would help homeless people who were “in need of support”.
“The Lad, like many others in London is struggling to make the rent and living on £2 a week, but if they can find a suitable home, it can be a much-needed lifeline,” she said.
“One Way Home offers people who are struggling to find accommodation the chance to stay in their home and have their housing needs met.”
