Hi there! I am the aunt of the beneficiary, Hanrich Beukes, who was born prematurely to Elri and Jacques Beukes at Wilmed Park Private Hospital in Klerksdorp (NW) on 12 June 2019.
Hanrich has been in the NICU since his birth on 12 June 2019. His lungs are underdeveloped and he has since received uninterrupted help with this via the ventilator, bi-phasic oxygen machine, cPAP, and oxygen tubes on a rotational basis. Other medical expenses include treatment for jaundice, intravenous feeding, heart sonars and naval drips. All these medical expenses amount quite to a lot and the parents have to cover the costs that will not be covered by the medical aid.
Hanrich was moved the from NICU to maternity ICU on 30 June and medical bills are soon going to start to roll in.
Funds raised will be used to cover the medical expenses not covered by medical aid. Besides costs not covered by their medical aid, Hanrich requires the help of a full-time aupair that will help the family from 1 August 2019, who will be paid R4000 per month. Due to his premature development, Hanrich will need multiple sessions of occupational therapy and speech therapy for fine muscle development for feeding, estimated at R800 per hour per specialist. He will also require specialised baby equipment such as dummies for premature babies and specialised pillows for his muscular development.
Elri and Jacques will donate any money that is left after covering their expenses to other families who have NICU-babies.
Donations will mean that Hanrich will be able to receive the medical care and support he requires and the parents (direct caregivers) will be able to supply him with what he needs to grow and regain his health.
The funds will be paid to the Beukes-family directly to pay the doctors, specialists, pathologists, hospital and other service providers for services rendered.
