ORIGINAL REQUEST:


Good Morning


My self-adopted daughter had a horrible experience when her then two year old son Tiano had a near drowning accident.

The result of the accident has left Tiano incapacitated with a very bleak prognosis for the future.


My heart goes out for my child as she is a young mother, who desperately needs assistance on the day-to-day management of Tiano and help with the cost of Tiano’s special needs, possibly for the rest of his life. Callan had to leave her job to care for Tiano and as the attached letter states you will  see Tiano needs 24/7 attention and is currently on a two hourly rotation regiment.


My request for help is for any professional suggestions on a day facility who would be able to care for Tiano, for help in finding a donor who would help supply his daily feed as it cost about R4000 a month, Tiano needs diapers and a special brace all which you will find in the attached letter.


Tiano’s mum will be available at any time to answer any related questions you may have regarding this ardent request.  

I pray you would consider airing the plight of Tiano and I know God in his wisdom will have the good Samaritans we have in our country extend a helping hand.


Thank you so much for your time,


God Bless

Elize Ernest
