I'm doing this fundraiser for my brother Neels Vermeulen. He had a stroke on Monday morning the 4th of January 2021, when he got up and get ready for work.
My parents had to phone someone to help to get my brother up from the living room floor, they took him to the doctor, when they got home, he had another attack and fell on the garage floor. He is currently bedridden, he can't feel his left side of his body, can't use his hand, or move his left arm or leg.
There are times during the day that he can sit, in a wheelchair, but not for too long because he feels short of breath when sitting too long. He also struggles to talk. Sometimes very unclear.
He can't wash, eat or get in bed himself, all through my parents and brother and sister's help.
Both our parents are Pensioners, they only have that income every month.
My brother doesn't have a current income and also couldn't afford medical aid.
It's important for me to help to raise a fund to help cover the costs for hospital, medication and therapy and also for helping my brother and parents.
If I can raise the funds for everything that needs to be paid, it will definitely change my brother's life, and he will get back to his old self faster.
The funds raised will be used for hospital costs, medication needed for my brother to get better, and for the therapy that he needs to get to talk and walk again.
Not only will I appreciate all the help, but my brother and Parents will forever be grateful.
