#BabyGodswill Family Support

Personal message

#BabyGodswill was born in December 2016 in Edenvale State Hospital, with a lesion on his neck. Instead of doing surgery to correct it immediately, the Mother and child were sent home. The lesion grew bigger by the day; eventually resembling a second head when I met them in April 2017 at Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital. At this hospital, I was witness to the staff sending the child home 'to die'.

I was outraged, and embarked on a Social Media Campaign that ended up saving his life. He has had the critically needed surgeries, and is receiving ongoing medical care. With a previous fundraiser, we managed to get the family moved to a safer place, away from the drug-infested slums where they were living at the time. We tried our best to get work for the Daddy, but since he is not South African, it is challenging at best. He works when he gets the chance. And he works hard.

However, the family has fallen behind on their rent, and are struggling to afford food and basic items, like nappies for Godswill. Their flat is very cold during this Winter, and although some good people donated for carpets and other critical necessities, it is but a drop in the ocean. I would like to see them have enough gas to keep warm, have a fridge filled with decent food and basically have whatever it is they need to keep Godswill healthy.

Please consider helping this family. No amount is too small.
