Hope for Conrad

Personal message

I am a single parent (widow) who is currently unemployed and need financial assistance to obtain surgical treatment for my son to ensure his arm can be saved. 

My son, Conrad (17 - grade 11), was shot in the right forearm by a third party at a friend's house on 26 April 2021. 

He received emergency care in a local private hospital in Amanzimtoti, KZN where we live and also where the gunshot wound was sustained

The bullet shattered 75 percent of the bone in his arm and also left him with a lot of tissue loss. The nerve endings have been damaged and the wound has gone septic due to bone fragments that could not be surgically removed as it is lodged in the muscle.

Currently, the wounds are treated with wound suction to avoid total tissue loss. Conrad must undergo orthopaedic surgery to avoid permanent damage. Conrad is right-handed and therefore cannot use his hand at the moment. He is unable to attend school and might have to change subjects like EDG (technical drawing).

I am in urgent need of financial assistance for the next orthopaedic procedure at the cost of R800 000. Some of the procedures that need to be performed on his arm are not available in a government hospital. 

Conrad is academically strong and is a first-team rugby player for his school.

He is a leader for 5 consecutive years in his school and also the under chair of the student school governing body. Conrad is serving on the school prayer group and volunteers for SANBS. He is a model child that lost his father at the age of 20 months and excelled despite early trauma and loss. 

Please find it in your heart to assist to save a promising young man's arm and give him hope again.

We thank each and every person for your assistance and pray that God will bless you in abundance.
