AND NOW SHE NEEDS OUR HELP
Elsofie fell sick about a year ago. She went to numerous doctors but no one had answers. She had
been in constant pain and discomfort, but knowing Elsofie, not even an illness can stop her.
Despite her illness, Elsofie continued to work relentlessly as things were very tough already with
financial distress and loss of business & assets, as they were in the Tourism Industry. Something like
medical aid wasn’t even an option.
When the Coronavirus hit Cape Town, Elsofie and her husband showed symptoms and decided to
went for testing. Although both tested negative, Elsofie continued to struggled with severe pain in
her neck area, unable to move her neck.
Two days later she was rushed to the nearest emergency room – a private hospital – and landed in
ICU. Although she didn’t have medical aid, her condition was so severe that the doctors feared for
her life and didn’t want to move her to a state hospital.
Elsofie was kept in ICU isolation for more than two weeks and was released only after another week
in general care. The cause of her illness is still unknown.
The scope of her medical bills are astronomical - they simply do not have the capability to recover on
their own. Elsofie needs your contribution, your donation, your help!
She is our mother, our mentor and our friend.
