My husband, Derrick Apollis, 52 years old, stays in Northpine, Brackenfell, Cape Town.
Derrick needs a wheelchair and physiotherapy - medical is depleted and cannot provide. I used to assist with moving him around but recently developed a back injury and am unable to move him around. He is recovering, he recently started to talk again after a period of 3 years.
We need to raise funds for this urgently by December 2019.
Funds raised will be used for a wheelchair (special chair for his needs) cost R34 000.
Physiotherapy cost R300 per cession - he needs 2 sessions per week which costs R2400- R2700 per week.
Medical Aid cannot cover as he needs medication every month as well.
If the wheelchair is available, he will be able to move around and have social interaction which is necessary for his recovery.
