Im here to try and raise funds for my sister who has MS (Multiple sclerosis) which is an incurable disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord.
The journey has not been easy for us as a family but more so for her and her son of 13 years who never leaves his moms side. She has looked long and hard for work but she has been unable to find anything. Unfortunately, due to the nature of MS, she is unable to reliably attend work every day. There are days where she wakes up in agonizing pain and days where she can't even walk. For this reason, employers are obviously unwilling to recruit her.
The only source of income that she currently has is the R1.700 a month disability grant that comes from the South African government. This money has to go into rent, living expenses, medicine and raising her son. It is simply not enough. Most months she goes without medicine because she doesn't have the money required to buy it. This, along with the added stress caused by the lack of income has taken its toll on her health.
The father of her son has also recently left her and told her that she needs to find a new place to stay. She has until the end of the month to raise funds for a deposit on a new place and still have funds to pay the first months rent and feed herself and her son.
She is in a really dire situation and we have run out of options which is why I am asking for your help.
I just want to see my sister happy and healthy again.
I deeply appreciate any support we can get.
