Get Danni Alberts on her feet again!

Get Danni Alberts on her feet again!

Personal message

Many of you know Danni as a dedicated, hard working, loving mother of 3. She has always donated much of her time and energy to help others over the years. Danni Alberts was one of the unsung heroes of the Knysna Fires in 2017. With a tiny baby in tow, she dropped her life to help hundreds of displaced families. She started a charity called Knysna Families in Need and worked day and night to help as many as she could. 

On the 21st of May, Danni fell and sustained a serious injury, where she shattered her tibia and broke her fibula (medically known as a Tibial Plateau Fracture). She was operated on and fitted with a plate and pins. The specialist at the hospital referred to this injury as the “life sentence of all breaks” as she will live with pain and swelling for the rest of her life. 

It has been 12 weeks since the surgery and she is finally managing to use crutches (non weight bearing on her broken leg). She will start rehabilitation next week to get her walking again. 

It will be a very long recovery and many of her friends have shared an interest in starting up a fundraising effort on her behalf. Danni isn't on medical aid and the journey ahead is still long and future surgeries / complications, still unknown - the immediate costs are building up. Please consider a contribution towards Danni’s expenses listed below (no donation too small) and if you don’t have anything to give, that’s okay. We hope you'll consider sharing this widely - perhaps through your Facebook page and contact lists so that Danni can literally get back on her feet again!
