Bongumusa Masondo needs our help

Bongumusa Masondo needs our help

Personal message

My friend Bongumusa Masondo is the beneficiary. I work with him and have known him for over 10 years. He was in a serious accident on Friday 9 August and needs our help.

I need to raise funds to help Bongumusa heal from a serious motorbike accident. He has broken limbs and is currently awaiting surgery in a government hospital. Addington Hospital will operate on the 26 August on his wrist and on 5 September only on his leg.

The inspiration for this campaign is that Bongumusa works as a freelance technician in the Durban Theatre community. He does not have medical aid and will need at least 4 months off work to recuperate from his injuries - which include a broken femur and compound fractures in his wrist.

Here is the story that I posted on facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/tina.l.roux/posts/10156550110627135

I need to raise funds immediately to cover things like getting Musa the right type of crutches, but it will need to be an ongoing campaign to raise funds over the next few months while he recuperates.

Funds raised will be used for:
R3000 for specialized crutches
R1000 for nutritional shakes that he needs
R5000 x 4 months (total R20 000) for accommodation
R20 000 for private physiotherapy and occupational therapy long term
R6000 towards groceries for the next few months - as he won't be working and doesn't, therefore, have any money.
R10 000 towards private nursing care for his wounds when he is discharged.

Bongumusa's job in theatre is a physical one that requires him to be able to paint, sew, climb ladders and do heavy set construction work. My friend is completely out of action for the immediate future. We cannot allow this to be a disaster that ends his career. We need to stand together as a theatre family and support Bongumusa with the care he needs to ensure he comes back to us.

The funds are going directly to getting Musa the medical help and support he needs. This will include accommodation for him, physiotherapy and occupational therapy, private nursing care and wound management care.

Please follow Bongumusa's progress here.
