Londiwe Ntshangase, a 33-year-old medical doctor in an anaesthesia specialist program, encountered a sudden illness in 2023, leaving her in ICU on life support since early August. This condition caused severe disabilities, rendering her unable to perform daily tasks, speak, or walk due to losing functionality on her right side. Currently reliant on a tracheostomy for breathing and unable to swallow, she requires total parenteral nutrition. Her depleted medical aid and financial constraints hinder her access to necessary care and rehabilitation, impacting her recovery. Funds are being raised to aid her rehabilitation, cover essentials like adult diapers and specialized feeds, and assist her family’s day-to-day needs. The goal is to support her recovery and potential return to medical practice.
A crowdfunding campaign has been initiated for Andrew, who was hospitalized following a severe car accident on November 20th, sustaining two fractures in his neck. Multiple surgeries and treatments are required, incurring unforeseen expenses. Family and friends are urged to contribute towards Andrew’s recovery, acknowledging any emotional or financial support provided. Andrew, Lizandra, and Heidi express their gratitude for the assistance during this challenging period.
Charlize Schmidt, a student at Höerskool Linden, has been an integral part of their netball program, notably as a key player in the 16A team. Recognized for her exceptional defensive skills, Charlize has been selected to join Linden’s first team for 2024 in the Walvis Bay Private School annual sport festival in Namibia from March 25th to 31st. Charlize’s mother, Theresa, highlights her daughter’s passion for netball since age 9 and the privilege of this opportunity. The family aims to raise R17,000.00 by February 2024 to support Charlize’s participation, welcoming any sponsorship or contributions to fulfill this dream.
