    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Hi everyone i don't really know how to ask for donations kind of a shy person. Here is a little about my situation i'm in. Sorry for the long story but there is no short way of explaining it.

    I'm a type one diabetic (Insulin depended) with high blood pressure and hypertension. My Husband is the only one working currently due to my eyes and his income alone is only 54k a year.

    I went to our Local Hospital for my routine check up and told them there was something floating around in the front of my right eye and they checked and told me it was a "floaty" and gave me eye drops and said it would go a way, so a month went by and it did not go a way.

    My husband told me we must go to Elim Hospital were they had the equipment to see in deep in side my, and that's were i got the worst news. I was told that there is blood behind my right eye retina and that is what is cause the "floaty" and my left i was also following close behind..

    So the specialist at Elim Hospital arranged a Transfer to Nylstroom Local Hospital were i met Dr R. Viljoen from Northcliff Eye Centre. He then confirmed everything what they saw in Elim.

    He then said he would help me with the laser treatment i required on the left i to stop the bleeding free of charge by Northcliff Eye Centre on the 5th of April 2018 all i had to pay for was the consultation fee of R 500. We needed about R 2500 for travelling and housing to get My house Doctor helped us with the R 500 and some close friends helped us with the rest of the funds needed.

    This money i need now is to have a operation on my right eye to clean out the blood and hopefully restore my full vision back to normal.

    Have a Great day.

    My the Lord bless everyone.
