I am creating this campaign to help my sister Corryn & brother in law Quintin bring there new baby boy (my nephew) Jayden Martinus Harper due to arrive by 04/01/2020 safely & peacefully into this already harsh and cruel world... there is a possibility he may arrive sooner as my sister will have to have a c-section done but it is difficult to tell at this stage.
As many will probably know, if not by seeing and or hearing about South Africa's very poorly run & maintained government hospitals... most of the horror stories are sadly true!!!
As with many, if not the majority of South Africans have hit hard times in the past few years with 2019 being the worst... Corryn & Quintin are both kind hard working people but due to unforeseen events & circumstances out their control earlier in this year they were forced to default on many of what we in SA consider luxurious needs but are seen as basic necessities in most other countries, such as their medical aid and Life Insurances ect... to then shortly afterward find out they were expecting and my sister was no longer eligible to claim maternity benefits if she re joined her medical aid scheme or any other new one.
We have all tried in every way possible as a united family from both parents side to try raise funds locally but again due to circumstances out of our control we have not been able to raise enough in time... hence this campaign as a last resort to ask for help to assist us with just the medical expenses to have Jayden delivered in a clean, safe & reputable environment.
Corryn's gynecologist, Dr Du Plessis, who by the way has been so awesome in helping by not charging my sister for her last few follow up scans to check that all is going well with baby Jayden :) He delivers babies at the Life Flora clinic in Roodepoort SA and has also offered that my sister may pay off his fee's through a payment plan, leaving us just needing R32 000.00 that needs to be paid upfront when booking her bed and thereafter to cover the anesthetist and pediatrician's fees, thus we are requesting a goal of R40 000.00 to R45 000.00
Any assistance or donation big or small will be so greatly appreciated and truly welcomed, all we want is for this precious new soul Jayden to come into this world as peacefully as is possible <3 <3 <3
I take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity!!!
Kindest regards & blessings
The Bartlett & Harper families
