Wheels & Wings 4 André

Personal message

I am Tarine Strauss and I’m writing to you to ask your support in
donating to my dear friend, Andre Fourie (43), who was in an airplane accident on 12 February 2021 that left him paralyzed. 

Andre Fourie used to skydive and had an incredible talent and passion for the sport. He made a living doing what he loves the most, which is skydiving. 

Unfortunately, the airplane accident left him bound to wheelchair. He is now paralyzed from the waste down, only able to use his arms and hands, to some extent… He’s also dependent on his parents and a caretaker (they cannot afford). His parents also cannot do much for Andre physically or financially, but at least they can provide a loving home.

Andre was discharged from the hospital after an intense 5 months and 4 days, on 16 July 2021. 

He does not have any form of income anymore, due to his accident. And the donations he received up until now, all went towards medical bills and physical recovery. Unfortunately the bills doesn’t stop…

He now also needs a proper wheelchair, one that paraplegics require to assist with sitting upright and in a comfortable position. A chair which will hopefully promote healing and not contribute to any further damage to his spinal cord while sitting in the same position all day, every day.

More on wheelchairs for paraplegics: LINK

The raised funds  will be used to buy Andre a wheelchair, paying for over R700 000.00 in medical expenses (which is no longer covered by the hospital plan André had), paying for caretaker services and everyday necessities.

It is important for us to get funds as soon as possible so we can get Andre back on track mentally and physically

We believe that physical therapy, a caretaker and his new wheelchair will motivate him and give Andre that bit of hope of maybe walking again one day or even just using his arms to full potential, getting a job at some stage and finding a way to be happy and healthy.

We will appreciate it immensely if you were to donate towards helping Andre adjust to his new life.

We sincerely thank you for supporting us
