    Story




    IMAGINE.....

    ... you are totally dependent upon someone to keep you alive! .....because you can’t speak, you can’t eat by yourself, you can’t walk, you can’t go to the toilet or wash yourself, you can’t turn over in bed at night, you can’t dress yourself. You have epileptic fits and you need constant medication. You cannot be left unattended for more than 30 minutes during the day. You can understand what is being said, you can laugh, you can show appreciation by your smile. You are trapped in a body that does not work!

    ...and you have been this way for 20 years!

    NOW IMAGINE ......

    ... that you are the 54 year old parent of this child! It is difficult enough, physically and financially, to care for your dear child now ..... how will you manage at age 64?
    How can you ensure that your child’s special needs will be taken care of when you are not able to due to age, illness or death? This fear is on your mind constantly.

    FAST FORWARD ......

    ... you, the parent, suddenly aren’t “there” anymore!!! It all happened so suddenly!
    “My child is all alone!” “What is he thinking?” “He will be panicking!” “He needs his medicine!”
    “Who can afford to care for him?” “Who is prepared to take on this big responsibility?” “What will happen to him?” “I failed him!”

    STOP ! !

    Fortunately YOU are not the parent and, thankfully, you don’t have this stressful situation.... but what if you did?
    Would YOU feel blessed to receive some assistance to ensure that, after your passing, your child is safe and looked after?


    THEN PLEASE .... BE THE ANSWER to the parents problem .... BE THE BLESSING that they so desperately need!!

    ....follow the link below to see how ........... and thank you for your kindness!🌻

      Update from the Page owner

      Thank you all for your help with this fundraiser. With some other donations still coming in we will have £700 pounds to send to The Apricot Tree. It does not sound like a lot but with the conversion we will be contributing around R14,000 towards their renovation budget of R160,000.
