My name is Deshane Vegotine and Riyaaz Abrams - the mother and father of baby Takiya Abrams, she is 1 year 7 months and was born on the 22 of February 2018.
We live in Johannesburg Gauteng.
I have picked up that my daughter had a hearing problem but I thought it would get better as she grows. On the 10.10.2019 she went for an ABR test and I found out that my baby girl has been fully deaf since birth. A cochlear implant is an expensive device and in addition to the initial costs, successful use is dependent on our commitment to an appropriate rehabilitation programme and provision for ongoing maintenance of the device.
Takiya needs a cochlear implant which cost R500 000 for one ear. And she is deaf in both ears.
Reaching my target will mean that my baby girl will be able to hear for the first time have a normal childhood and a normal speech and not live in silence for the rest of her life.
Whatever money is left that we could help other children in the same need as Takiya Abrams.
All the funds that are being raised will go straight to TAKIYAS cochlear implant and all the excess money that's left will go to other children in need with the same operation.
*As per the campaign creator's request, the funds raised will be transferred directly to the relevant medical practitioner.*
