Buks Fighting COVID19 Fundraiser

Buks Fighting COVID19 Fundraiser

Personal message

I am raising funds for my husband, Buks van Heerden, who is turning 50 next year and living in Meyerton. He is a keen athlete, pace setter, motivational speaker, husband, father and I love people.

Buks has contracted COVID19 and tested positive on Saturday, 25 July 2020. He is currently fighting for his life with many complications in fighting this illness. He has been admitted to hospital in Vereeniging on 28 July 2020.  We do not have medical aid and good friends assisted with the deposit that we had to pay for his admission. We need funds to keep him in hospital under good medical care. We need to raise these funds for his hospital expenses as soon as possible.

Reaching our target will mean that we can save Buks' life. The funds will be used to pay all his hospital, doctors and other medical expenses.

*Where possible, funds will be transferred directly to the relevant medical organisation/hospital.  The remaining funds will be used to reimburse upfront costs.*

Buks van Heerden Medical Cause

Buks van Heerden Medical Cause Logo

I am raising funds for my husband, Buks van Heerden, who is turning 50 next year and living in Meyerton. Buks has contracted COVID19 and tested positive on Saturday, 25 July 2020. He is currently fighting for his life with many complications in fighting this illness.
