In July 2019 there were people sent on my path with caring hearts and so much love. A Orthotist from Pretoria was so generous to help my with a prosthetic. He is willing to make me a prosthetic leg for half of the money. The Orthotist said he can make ma prosthetic leg with a plastic foot (labor includes as well as physio therapy afterwords) for a amount of R 40 000.
Usually a leg will cost you about R 100 000 - R 150 000.
My inspiration for my campaign is to walk again and to life a normal life. This prosthetic leg will help me work again and do normal activities around the house without a struggle. My daughter is getting married in October 2019 and I would LOVE to dance at her wedding.
It would have a positive impact on my life because the amputation came very sudden, and my whole life changed in the blink of an eye. I am very grateful for all the support of friends and family, but it would be nice to be able to help myself again and gain my independence back.

I am currently living in Alberton, Gauteng, South Africa.
I am the beneficiary of this fundraiser. In April 2019 due to a spider bite on my left foot I had to amputate my leg below the knee. Since then my life changed a lot, I had to quit my job and doing normal activities around the house became a challenge.
