Help Junior recover

Help Junior recover

Personal message

My name is Ronel and I am raising funds for my friend, Cheryl's son, Wayne (Junior). Junior is 25 years old, he is a good son to his mother, he works an honest job... and was shot 12 times. The shooting was entirely unprovoked - Junior was a victim of the crime suffered on the Cape Flats.

Junior miraculously survived this senseless and cruel act of violence.

Junior was shot twice in the face, three times in his chest, five times in his back and twice in the arm.

The two shots to Junior's face caused severe damage to his jaw and gum line. The three shots to his chest caused his lung to collapse. He has two broken ribs due to the five shots on the right side of his back. The two shots in his arm caused severe nerve damage to his entire right arm and shoulder.

Junior says: "I am absolutely traumatized and finding it absolutely hard to mentally recover."

Junior is currently seeing a physio to help him recover but will require further treatment and surgeries to his arm and face. The trauma Junior suffered is beyond imagination and in order for Junior to mentally and emotionally recover, he will need psychological help as well. Junior has a job, but his boss cannot pay him when he is not able to work. His mother has a good job, but she has other responsibilities as well and cannot afford Junior's medical expenses. Junior does not have medical aid. In order for Junior to have the best chance of a full recovery, additional funds are required.

Junior survived something that very, very few people on earth have survived. I, therefore, believe that he is very special and has a divine purpose here on earth. My wish is that these donations will help towards his full and entire recovery, so that Junior can discover his purpose and live it to the fullest.

All funds will go towards defraying medical costs - physiotherapy, surgery, psychological treatment.
