Steps4Ubuko

Personal message

Ubuko has been diagnosed with Meningococcal Septicemia -the lining of Ubuko’s blood vessels were damaged and obstructed his narrow arteries and cut off his blood supply. This resulted in a Bilateral lower limb and finger amputation at the age of 3.

Marissa Nel from Marissa Nel and Associates came to know about Ubuko’s challenge through Frere Hospital acting manager Joy Scholl. “I finally met Ubuko and those of you who have had the privilege to meet him will understand that he only has to look at you once and you are done, the mischievous smile and determination in his eyes caught my heartstrings,”

“Ubuko will grow, so we will need to change his socket, probably in the next six to eight months, when he will require alignment adjustments, and replacement of some of his prosthetic parts,” she said. “Just to give you an idea, from today until Ubuko is 18, we will have to refit and change his prosthetic sockets at least 14 to 16 times.”

With Marissa Nel committing a Massive amount towards the prosthetic componentry required to keep Ubuko mobile and (happy) which comes in costing her around R 148 000.00 a year, it will be an expensive year, every year until Ubuko turns 18.

With this in mind, 7 Round Tablers from East London 1 are willing to put their bodies on the line for young Ubuko. The 4 Tablers, have committed to doing the 2019 Iron Man in East London in order to raise funds. This will involve training almost every day for the following 6 months in order to get prepared.

The Tablers will be looking towards friends, family and all of their contacts in order have each of their steps during the race in Ubuko’s name sponsored to raise their Target of R50 000 to assist Ubuko in living a life that each child deserves.

*Funds will be managed and distributed by Round Table*
