"Sight" for Andries

Personal message

Andries told me that he has got cataracts in both eyes and has been on the waiting list at Groote Schuur for many years. This has now been aggravated by Covid and his wait could take many more months or years.
Andries may well become blind before he has his surgery which will have a detrimental effect on him, rendering him unable to work and even worse provide for his family. 

Andries has been a loyal and exemplary employee for many years. He is 45 years old, the main breadwinner in his family and is a father to two young boys of 13 and 11.

Wembley Eye Clinic in Athlone does cataract surgery at about R10,000 an eye, which is at least 50% less than most private surgeons. I have registered Andries at the clinic and hope the waiting list is not too long.
I have been in contact with the Dealer and Manager and have their support for the campaign.

My request to you dear friends is to help me help Andries get his vision back again. I thank you in anticipation -no donation is too small!

Andries Mphthi Medical Cause

Andries Mphthi Medical Cause Logo

Hi all, My name is Ann Bennetts. I worked for Engen for 30 years however I am now retired. Last week when filling up my car at my local Engen in Tokai I noticed that Andries the petrol attendant was battling to see the digits on the card machine. I asked him if he has had his eyes tested as he may need glasses. Andries has cataracts in both eyes and has been on the waiting list at Groote Schuur for many years.
