Lwandile and Nomubso Mbebe - Lwandi and Noms to those that loved and knew them were brutally attacked in a home invasion.
The couple was on their Patio when a group of armed men broke into their house. Despite complying and begging not to be harmed both Lwandi and Noms were mercilessly shot.
Lwandi suffered a bullet wound to his eye and miraculously survived the ordeal.
Nom's life was taken, far too soon, leaving her beautiful two-year-old daughter without her mother.
A senseless brutal crime.
Nom's warm smile and laugh were infectious and she wore them well and generously often enough to lift the mood in any room.
Lwandi is without health insurance and need of multiple surgeries, to retrieve debris from his neck, spinal column, brain and eye.
Lwandi is a professional videographer and photographer, the loss of his eye is a devastating blow to his career and livelihood. The fund raising will be ongoing until Lwandi is back on his feet and the surgeries are completed.
Funds raised will cover essential costs while Lwandi recovers from surgery and to cover costs of the multiple surgeries needed.
The funds will help Lwandi and his family recover from this senseless tragedy and help him gain access to the best possible healthcare.
*Where possible funds will be transferred directly to the relevant medical practitioner, the rest of the funds will help Lwandi cover costs of looking after his daughter while he isn’t able to work*
