Desperate Funds Required for Thandeka - Amputee and Paraplegic

Personal message

This is beautiful Thandeka, who is in desperate need of some very urgent help.

Thandeka was walking to work, on Louis Botha Avenue, in February 2021 and was hit by a car travelling at an extremely high speed. The accident resulted in the amputation of her right leg and left her paralyzed from the waist down. Thandeka was treated at Charlotte Maxeke hospital until it closed down due to the fire. Unfortunately, due to negligent nursing care, she was discharged with horrific bedsores over her sacral region, knee and back. She was sent home without a wheelchair and without having been educated about how to live with and manage her condition. The situation is now dire!

Monga - her partner - has shown incredible commitment and loyalty to Thandeka since then. He has cared for her and loved her despite significantly limited means. Monga has a part-time job at KFC and struggles to make ends meet. They live in a single-room in Yeoville. They can barely afford food and rent, let alone nappies and other items to provide Thandeka the love, kindness and care she needs to lead a dignified life. 

They have had to send their 9 year old daughter back to Zimbabwe as they cannot afford to care for her here in South Africa any longer. The lady who hit Thandeka promised to help her, but disappeared soon after realising that she was Zimbabwean...Thandeka's mother has come from Zim to help during the day while Monga is at work, and she sleeps on the floor alongside her daugher. That means 3 adults living in one room. 

Monga is feeling so despondent and depressed, and just needs some help and hope. Thandeka is receiving care through Sister Daniella at the Wound Clinic in Dowerglen and we need to cover costs of each appointment, which is R2500 per week. Sister Daniella has been helping pro-bono so far. 

All funds will be used to manage costs like food, rent, medical care, appointments etc to ensure Thandeka is loved and looked after in this very trying time.
