Dupuo Kokolisi - Pitbull attack

Dupuo Kokolisi - Pitbull attack

Personal message

Donate Via Snapscan

On 25 January 2022 Selina Dupuo Kokolisi arrived at the home of her employer in Potchefstroom, Northwest Province, South Africa, when she was attacked and grievously mauled by their three pit bulls. The attack was so severe that neighbours had to urgently intervene.

After the incident Dupuo was in critical condition she is now in the intensive care unit at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto. Dupuo has sustained severe injuries to her face and body. Both her ears, her top lip, and parts of her nose have been ripped away. Her left eye has been badly injured and there are gross injuries on one of her legs. She is currently unable to speak or recognize relatives.   

Dupuo has a long road of recovery ahead. This fundraiser has been started to support her financially for upcoming reconstructive surgeries, rehabilitation, and other expenses that will be incurred in her treatment. Funds will also be used to help her daughter to visit and support her.  

Besides her physical injuries, for which she has already undergone several surgeries, and skin graft procedures, Selina is experiencing emotional pain, as she is ‘unrecognisable’ to her loved ones, particularly her beloved grandchildren. 

Speaking to the Daily News, Selina said:

 “I may have survived death, but sadly, I now have to live with the fact that I am not the person my grandchildren knew. They fear being around me, they cry when they see me because they do not believe that I am their grandmother.

“The young ones who used to love me are struggling to accept me because the grandmother they knew had ears, lips, nose and looked like other human beings. Now I look completely different”

 

Thank you in advance for your donations.  

Kind regards

Alma 

Update:  31 Jan

Dupuo has been transferred from ICU and she is able to recognise her loved ones.  She will have to undergo at least 6 more operations to reconstruct her face. 

Thank you dearly for all the donations made so far.
