The story starts with my father having been sequestrated and due to the financial struggles my Father and Mother have been trying everything to keep the family head above water. They were selling offal to the local locations around the Cape Town area (Dec 14th 2017) and whilst they were packing up three armed men had approached them and request that they give the money which my father had provided them with with no delay, but after he had provided them everything each of them had proceeded to shoot him in the legs as my mother stood witness to it. They had followed to aim the gun at my father's head, my mother had climbed over my father and begged to please not shoot him again and to which one of the armed men said "We dont want to hurt you" and then the proceeded to flee.
From then on it was a struggle to get my father to the hospital as he is a big and heavy man, 1 of the three bullets had gone through his vascular artery and he was loosing a lot of blood. By the time they had gotten him to the hospital he had lost a lot of blood and was unconscious. They had to rush to get blood into him and get him stabilized which thank god they did (Thank you to Da Noon Hospital for all your hard work). After they had stabilized him he was then transferred to Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town for scans on how to continue with surgery to remove the bullets but due to the process having take longer than 6 hours the calf muscles in his right leg had started deteriorating and the end result his leg had to be amputated from the knee downwards.
now this is where my plea comes in, we dont have the funds, for medical bills, as well as to try and get my father a prosthetic. My father has always been an active man working on cars, building things and just having a good time and I would really love to see my father walk again. So if you could find the kindness in your heart to help us it would be greatly appreciated.
