Help Sinawo Meshini

Personal message

Sinawo Meshini  (or Wowo as he is fondly known by his friends), has been dancing under Bheki’s instruction for some time now. He was one of the first members to join our Shikila Dance Troupe we have fallen in love with this positive young guy with so much talent! He is such a pleasure to be around and so caring about other people.

Sinawo lives in a small extension of his families shack in Khayelitsha. Two nights ago (20 March) he blew out his candle and fell asleep. It must have relit again, as he woke up and the shack was in flames. Due to the fact that the room was so well locked, he struggled to get out and had to fight through the flames as he eventually pushed through the door.

He has suffered severe burns on his upper body and head, especially on his back. All his vital organs seem to be alright and he luckily did not inhale too much smoke.  His friends who found him took him to Khayelitsha Hospital where he was stablised, and will be moved to Tygerberg Hospital today.

His speech is very slow and he is not able to talk for long periods of time. He is managing to hold down liquids which is good news.

We do not know the journey that lies ahead for our beloved Wowo, but we know it will be a tough one and we want to help him as much as we can so that he can get back on the dance floor and do what he loves (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtVdpMRzAaE) 

Together with your help we would like to raise R50 000 to go towards the rebuilding of Wowo’s shack, to replace all his household items/clothes etc and keep aside an amount for possible future medical/psychological costs that he may incur.

 In the interest of transparency, the campaign creators (Bheki and Amanda) will distribute the funds directly to organisations assisting Woho. BackaBuddy (A registered Non-Profit organization) will be holding any additional funds until such time as the additional needs (medical or otherwise) are clarified.
