Cheslin Marsh study fund

Cheslin Marsh study fund

Personal message

We have raised more than double the initial target of R15 000!

Through the Hannah Cornelius Foundation, we initially raised money to assist Cheslin Marsh of Wellington in the Western Cape to buy a hearing aid. 

Cheslin and his friend Hannah Cornelius were hijacked and kidnapped in the early hours of 27 May 2017.

Cheslin was left deaf in one ear following the brutal kidnapping and assault. Hannah did not survive the attack. Cheslin has since received a hearing aid and other services free of charge. Thank you!

However, he has not been able to further this education since the attack. We will continue raising funds on this platform to assist Cheslin in funding his studies.

The four men accused of raping and killing Hannah are currently on trial in the High Court in Cape Town. Sentencing is set to take place on 12 November 2018.

Hannah Cornelius is my cousin. Please help us help Cheslin.
