My sister Kelly van de Merwe (28) was in a very serious car accident. In the accident her pelvis was broken, and her bladder burst.
She does not have medical aid, and they want to charge half a million to do the surgery to fix her bladder.
After her pelvis surgery she is going to need a lot of rehabilitation.

We are in dire need of assistance.

This costs a lot more than my family can afford. Any donations will be appreciated.

If there is any money left over after her medical costs. We will donate it to another family in need.
