Personal message

Dear compassionate souls,

I write to you today with a heart heavy with concern for my beloved sister, Jessica Govinden, who has recently faced a life-altering challenge - a devastating stroke. In the blink of an eye, her world transformed into a battleground of pain and uncertainty. It is in these challenging moments that we, as a community, must stand together to offer support, hope, and a chance for a better tomorrow.

Jessica's spirit remains unbroken, but her path to recovery is a daunting one. The essence of her independence lies in the balance, teetering on the edge of regaining a life she once knew. However, the key to her journey towards healing lies in the hands of fate, the hands of compassion, and the hands of generous souls like you.

The harsh reality we face is that her medical funds have dwindled, leaving us unable to afford the vital speech therapy and physiotherapy she urgently needs. These sessions, scheduled three times a week, come at a cost of R1260 each. For the next five months, she requires these treatments, amounting to a staggering R378,000. It is a sum that feels insurmountable, a mountain we cannot climb alone.

As I reach out to you, I implore you to consider the profound impact your generosity can have on Jessica's life. Your donation, regardless of its size, will be a beacon of hope guiding us towards securing her essential therapy sessions. With your help, we can empower Jessica to reclaim her independence, rediscover her voice, and rekindle her spirit.

Imagine the transformation your support can bring - not just in financial terms, but in the restoration of a person's dignity, confidence, and ability to contribute meaningfully to society once more. Your kindness will serve as the catalyst for her healing, inspiring her to rise above adversity and embrace life anew.

Jessica's health is hanging in the balance, and time is of the essence. Your benevolence will not only fund her treatments but also breathe life into her dreams, aspirations, and the possibility of a future unburdened by the shadows of this stroke.

In the spirit of community, compassion, and unwavering hope, I extend my deepest gratitude to you in advance for your kindness. Your contribution will resonate far beyond the confines of these words; it will echo in the laughter she regains, the words she relearns, and the life she rebuilds.

Please, let us come together and be the architects of Jessica's recovery. With heartfelt thanks and immense hope, I thank you from the depths of my heart for your generosity.

Thank you

I am Louise Gideon, reaching out with a heavy heart on behalf of my sister, Jessica Govinden, who recently suffered a devastating stroke.

As her medical funds have depleted, she urgently needs speech therapy and physiotherapy three times a week to regain her functionality and resume work. The cost for each session is R1260, and she requires this 3 times a week for the next 5 months which amounts to R378,000 for the next five months – a sum we cannot afford.

Jessica's health is rapidly declining without this vital treatment. I humbly appeal to your generosity. Your donation, no matter the amount, will bring us closer to securing her sessions and restoring her independence. Together, let's help Jessica heal, reclaim her life, and contribute to society once more.

She will continue treatment as we gets funds; with heartfelt gratitude, i thank you in advance.

Thank you
