Transport for Timina

Personal message

Hi all. 

My name is Desiree. I would like to share a little something with you about an incredible family from Parklands, Cape Town

My sister's family: Beverley, Michael Nieuwoudt. And then, of course, my spectacular beautiful, intelligent little girl niece Timina Jade who turned 9 on the 6th of November. Many of you know her and already love her.

Timina was born at just 27 weeks and weighed a mere 735 grams. Though the odds were against her survival, Timina, with God's grace and favour and an incredible fighting spirit, not only survived, but she is reaching milestone upon milestone, even though they are a bit slower. Yes slower, but we all celebrate each and every one of them like a first step or first word etc. 

Timina touches hearts wherever she goes, whomever she meets. We chat regularly via WhatsApp video and her excitement is boundless. She is such a happy little girl. Even with all her challenges she shows what happiness is. 

Yes she gets frustrated when she cannot do certain things but she does not give up. She is determined to try. She is an amazing example of strength and perseverance. We are all super proud of her. 

As a family they face daily challenges. God has been faithful with His provision and faithfulness to them as a family as a family. However some challenges require a little bit of assistance from friends and family and whomever else is reading this and feels it in their hearts to assist in any way you would really be a blessing to them. 

With this being said, I would love to put a challenge out there and ask you to be a part of helping this family to raise funds for a much needed vehicle. They are currently without a vehicle. So the general getting to and from work, school, shops, doctors, hospitals (when needed) are very challenging. Public transport is currently still not an option for my niece, due to her compromised immune system. 

As a family Bev and Mike still try to limit any unnecessary exposure to Timina so as to keep her healthy and strong. It is of utmost importance for Timina to get to and from school and to be with other children who also have learning and physical disabilities. Just as we socialize, Timina also needs that interaction. She has made such phenomenal progress in the 4 months of her being at school. 

If you are willing and able to donate just R100 towards this cause we can quickly assist them with a vehicle. My idea is to challenge each one of you to donate just R100 (or if you feel more), and challenging your friends to donate. If 1000 people donate R100 we will be able to raise R100,000.00, which is a very attainable milestone. 

I believe and trust that you will open your hearts to their plea. Whether you are able to please do, if you are not able to, please pass this on to families and friends who you think may want to be apart of making a difference in their lives.

I am excited about this challenge as I believe we can make it happen for them. Thank you for taking the time to read and respond with donations.

Raising Hope for Timina Jade Cause

Raising Hope for Timina Jade Cause Logo

On 6 November 2012, our special girl, Timina Jade Nieuwoudt, was born at 27 weeks (13 weeks premature) weighing only 735 grams. She spent the first 101 days of her life in hospital. Timina was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy shortly after birth due to brain damage, causing her movement, posture and fine motor skills to be significantly delayed.

There is currently no cure for Cerebral Palsy. There are, however, various treatments and aids that can help improve Timina’s functionality and enhance her quality of life.

We view the fact that God destined us to be Timina's parents as an immense blessing. Raising her does however come with its own set of challenges. We are fortunate to be supported by an incredible village that includes our family, friends and our amazing church.

The financial aspect, of course, remains a challenge. We've received many miraculous blessings for which we are eternally grateful. If you would like to learn more about our family, please visit our website: https://www.timinajade.net/ 

Below follows a list of our active fundraising campaign/s.

Your contribution, no matter how large or small means the world to us (even if you are only able to share this profile with your wider networks, it makes a huge difference).
