Help for my mothers house ruined by builders

I have started this crowdfund with the intent that my mother can have her house sorted properly. 

My mother is vulnerable and her drinking contributed to her poor decision making.

I have tried to help her and offered to work for her but she trusted three separate scammers and I as her son don't know anymore what to do.

Before I was even 18 she had a bathroom renovation leaving the shower at risk of causing electric shocks. I lived like that for 10 years up until now where she has been scammed again.

The piping was done incorrectly and now has caused damage to the ceiling on the lower floor, we have no lightning in most rooms due to water leakage causing the electric mains to not work, lights are going out on by one.

The kitchen has black mould growing inside the walls, the lights don't work, we have no oven.

I will most likely not have a house to inherit due to this as the house with be worthless and I might have homelessness if the house is any worse. I am thinking of leaving and camping as at least it would be cleaner.

I do understand that this is entirely her fault, I have tried to help her but she refused help and continued drinking and hiring criminals.
I know she does not deserve the help and brought this upon herself but I did not, I never wanted to be exposed to the criminals and they even went out of their way to insult e while they worked and my mother still did not see the problem.

Any help is appreciated, I want the money to take control of this and hire non criminal builders and sort this
If a team can offer to help fix this rather than donate money, that equally would be helpful.

We need a qualified plumber and electrician and a builder and so I need the funds to pay them or I need a team of decent people to help.

Any services offered I would have to see qualifications for plumbing, electrics etc before work is agreed.

Attached is a photo of the kitchen cupboard and ceiling which is below the leaking pipes. Due to this, the kitchen now needs renovating.

Thank you for reading.
