Grandfather Operation

Personal message

My name is Melani Venter, I'm raising funds for my grandfather, Buks Coetzee, 77 years of age and lives in Polokwane (Limpopo).

Buks Coetzee is my father's dad and I've known my grandfather since the first day I've opened my eyes. My grandfather is the most HUMBLE, PATIENT, CARING person that I have ever known. Always teaching us as grandchildren the important things in life as well as always being behind grandchildren. You always feel welcome in their home. Although Buks has so many difficulties facing him every day, he always smiles and sees the positive things in life. My grandmonther has Alzheimers, my grandfather always handles her so gently when barthing and feeding her. He loves her so much and is a husband one in a million. 

Buks needs to go for FEMORAL HERNIA Surgery. Unfortunately, he doesn't have medical aid. His government pension money is way to low to cover any medical costs. A few test still needs to be done. After the surgery some cleaning products, plasters and medication still needs to be bought.

Reaching my target will mean my grandfather won't have so much stress. It also gives old people that hope and courage that there are still people out there willing to help them. Older people feels forgotten by their children and the community as soon as they are placed in a retirement home. Perhaps one definition of courage might be staying strong and moving forward even when most would give up and even surrender their ground to fear. Be strong and courageous for God today, and do not allow yourself to be defeated by fear or the unknown!

The operation will be done in the Med-Clinic Limpopo Hospital.
