R9 200 of R200 000 raised

My name is Gerhard Maré. I have hearing impaired in both ears since the age of 3 months due to meningitis. Furthermore, a VP Shunt was also implanted to drain the fluid from the brain which causes severe headaches to date.

My mental abilities didn’t develop to its full capacity due to the late discovery of my hearing impairment. My academic achievement is equivalent to Grade 9 and irrespective of many challenges.

I was able to qualify as a Plumber at a registered Plumbing Institution in Pretoria. Due to my hearing challenge, I was never given the opportunity to practice the said profession. Furthermore, my social life is also a disaster as I struggle to build sound relationships because I am treated as a mental retard due to my limited vocabulary.

My hearing aids are no longer sufficient to enhance my restricted hearing abilities. According to the Otologist the only option left for me is to have a cochlear implant of which the cost is exorbitant. My medical aid only settles approximately a third of the total cost and thus my request to raise funds for the outstanding balance.

I trust you will consider my request favourably and to grant me the opportunity to improve my livelihood and to improve my life expectations.

Thanking you in anticipation.
