Make a plan for Stan! 

We from the Carlstrong Foundation would like to raise funds for Stan Kondowe.

Stan is from Malawi – a Master Diver with years of experience, now living in South Africa, along with his wife and 3 daughters.

Stan was diagnosed with Glaucoma last year in his right eye. He has lost almost 50% of his vision in the eye – recently, he was diagnosed with severe Glaucoma in his left eye too – and is in need of surgery to relieve the pressure and to save his eye sight.

His operation has been booked for the 27 August 2019. Although Stan will not need to pay for his surgery – he will need financial support for his medication and extensive follow up appointments in the future. He will also not have any income for a relatively long time period after his operation – as he would need to recover.

Stan, currently works a gardener in Cape Town and unfortunately does not have the luxury of taking time off work – as his family rely on him to provide. Stan does not have “paid sick leave”. A day of work missed, is a day without pay, a day less providing and possibly a day his family goes without food.

Let’s make a plan for Stan! Let’s raise some money for him and his family to make his journey just a little more comfortable

Support for Claudia

Claudia, one of our long term residents, has spina bifida and urgently requires a new wheelchair which can accommodate her disability.

Claudia is a fundi in the Poultry Garden Workshop. Besides being a brilliant gardener she is a master pesto maker and provides delicious pesto to the Community.

Your donation would help Claudia in so many ways but mostly to ensure she is able to navigate the garden and make her delicious pesto for the community to enjoy.
