Personal message

Ernest Melville (51) was attacked by 5 men and shot 5 times. He was the main bread winner. He was busy doing deliveries for JD Group at the time of the attack. He was in two comas and on maximum life support. Two of the 5 bullets have made the most damage. One bullet has shattered the left femur and cut off two of the main vains in the leg. The other bullet has went into the right ribs and went through the right lung, made 3rd degree wound on the liver and went through the colon. It caused septicemia and he had to get an colostomy.

He was in ICU and high care for two months and because of laying in the hospital bed for more then 30 days his muscles have fallen flat. He gets daily physio and needs to learn to walk again. He needs 24/7 someone to take care of him. His wife is looking after him and therefore  are unable to go and work.

Their 3 children is trying to make ends meet to give as much money from their own salaries to take care of their mom and dad but are falling short. They are trying to do fundraisers to help their parents to the fullest.
