The Rugby boys have so much faith and hope for Jaco's complete recovery and pray

Jaco were in a car accident on the evening of March 24, 2018

and sustained the following injuries during the accident:

Lung injury, brain injury, right hip fracture and a C2 neck fracture. Jaco was

connected to a ventilator after which he had to get a trachea to accommodate the

ventilator. He had a hip operation 2 weeks after the accident to mobilize the hip and

should get a hip replacement in the near future. He was operated on July 9, 2018 for

his C2 neck fracture. Jaco was treated at Tswane Rehabilitation Center (a

government institution) until 20 February 2019.

Jaco's heartfelt desire was to come home and be with his parents, friends and

community from Rustenburg. Currently his parents need some help with home care

funds. Jaco also needs the help of a physiotherapist, speech therapist, occupational

therapist and psychologist.

Jaco's progress has been much better since he has been home and with the help of

his father and a home care provider.

We are also hosting fundraisers to raise funds to help us (his parents) with the

necessary expenses for a home care provider and also the necessary therapy that

he will receive daily for his recovery.

We ask your help. Whatever God puts on your heart and out of love for your fellow

man, to open hands and hearts to realize Jaco's desire and need.
