R 50 000
My husband Ben who is a pensioner has worked hard his whole life. He urgently needs an operation for a strangulated hernia. We went to a government hospital with a Dr's note saying the operation is Urgent. The surgeon turned him away saying it wasn't urgent enough. Ben is trying farm a few vegetables to keep his family in with necesseties but is struggling to do that because of excruciating pain which can render him in bed for days on end. We have been told the operation for everything in total is R45,000. +/-. We, his family desperately want to see Ben get his operation so he can live pain free and be able to farm again and not be in constant pain.
