BACKGROUND:  Last week on Good Morning Angels, we met 24-year-old Billy Badenhorst. He is the guardian of his 13-year-old brother, Dewald, after their dad died from COVID-19 complications on 21 January, only five days after Dewald’s mom and Billy’s step-mom also died from COVID-19. They all live with Billy’s girlfriend Charné’s parents.  

Dewald, who starts high school next week, suffers from epilepsy, which leaves him disorientated and with temporary amnesia after attacks. Their parents lost their jobs last year and there is no medical aid or other policies to provide for Dewald. Good Morning Angels assisted the brothers with R20,000 and several more angels came forward with assistance. 

We caught up with Billy on Breakfast with Martin Bester to share some more good news!
