Damian Gruen funeral & medical costs

Damian Gruen funeral & medical costs

Personal message

NOTE TO All DONORS:

At the time the campaign was launched, Tue 9 June 2020, the family was in dire need of funds to cover funeral and medical expenses. Even though it has since come to my attention (via a member of the public) that the funeral and medical expenses were covered, it has not been verified. The fund is to support the family to pay for any medical or other expenses which may have arose due to the accident. No donor is under any obligation to pay into this fund. When doing so, it's done out of good faith and because it feels right. We have no idea what specialists or further medical care the children Amber and Keenan will need to see in future. Please note that the campaign and the family have received media coverage its therefore not impossible to attract other types of donations and offerings. I did alter the original message since I want the fund to be transparent. 

Damian Gruen is a matric pupil of Die Anker H/S. He sadly passed away in a motor vehicle accident last night - 8th June 2020. He was with his older brother and younger sister at the time.

I am fundraising to get enough funds to assist the family of Damian Gruen to cover the funeral expenses of Damian and to assist with payment towards the medical bills of his brother and sister who are currently in hospital. The family is grieving and should not have to still deal with financial stress.

Reaching the target will help an already grieving family to not worry about these expenses while mourning their son.

You can read more about the story here.

Funds raised will be used to cover medical bills and funeral costs as per Damian's parents' request.
