My sister is the main care taker of my father who is 87 years of age. He was taken to hospital recently being in a semi-coma with clear reasons unknown to date. Being a single mother with no fixed income having lost her oldest son due to suicide a few months ago she is under immense stress. During my father's admittance to hospital she collapse and was admitted to hospital with a collapsed/obstructed intestine. Having no medical aid her family managed to raise R40 000 to have her stabilised in a private hospital. However she urgently needs surgery and the family is not in a position to raise the funds needed.
