Ryno du Toit's Recovery Fund

Ryno du Toit's Recovery Fund

Personal message


My name is Marizka du Toit and I live in Cape Town.
I am raising funds for my brother who was assaulted on the 16th of February, resulting in traumatic brain injury.

Ryno needs secondary care for Traumatic Brain Injury. I would like to hire extra help to lift my brother from his bed to a wheelchair, and someone to help wash him. He will need multiple trips to hospital, a new wheelchair, physiotherapy, psychotherapy and help covering daily expenses. His recovery period could take as long as 3 years.

I just want my brother to be treated like a decent human being. So many disabled individuals get forgotten in an institution or get neglected by their own families. We have enough love to give him but financially it will be difficult to make ends meet. My mother is a pensioner who is already looking after her down syndrome sister and my father passed away from a heart attack a month after my brother's assault and brain trauma.

Some costs involved:
Fixed 2-hour care by Hospice costs R250 per day x 2 years = R182 500
Wheelchair costs between R6000-R8000
Ryno will live in Bonnievale and will transport to Tygerberg hospital and back home is roughly R400 @ 1 trip per month for 2 years = R9600

It would mean Ryno could get the love and attention he needs to recover at home, he could be washed every day and live with dignity. I believe he would recover better in a stable positive environment.

*Where possible, funds will go directly to the relevant medical providers*
