Anisha is a 15-year-old girl from Craigieburn in Umkomaas, who, four years ago, was struck down with the auto-immune disease called Systemic Lupus. This is a very serious disease which can affect many organs in the body. Anisha was particularly badly affected in that she lost the ability to walk, her eyesight is greatly impaired and she is incontinent.
No school in Natal will accept her as they say she has too many disabilities. Therefore a Road to Recovery Campaign was set up to raise funds for private physiotherapy. She needs intensive physical rehabilitation if she is to walk again and resume her education.

How You Can Help
Apart from making a donation on the link above, we have put together a fantastic event in aid of Anisha and her Road To Recovery.
Come and enjoy an evening of entertainment, inspiration and fun as a fundraiser for Anisha Singh’s Road to Recovery Campaign.
This will take place on Friday, 27th July 2018 from 6 pm to 9 pm at the DSB Hall in Craigieburn opposite Moodleys Spar. Tickets are R30 per adult and R10 for children under 12 years. Available from Marge Vice on 0780606510 or Seshni on 0785245791. A tuckshop for cold drinks and snacks will be available. There will be an auction and lucky draw prizes, and the 50/50 Lucky Draw will take place during the evening.
The programme for the evening will comprise of cultural dances by an Indian dance troop and song items by a singer. There will also be an inspiring movie. This movie is one hour long and is about a 200km journey in the open ocean, along one of the wildest and most dangerous coastlines in the world, namely from Cape Hangklip, across the shark-infested waters of False Bay, around Cape Point and the Cape of Storms to Cape Town.
This journey was undertaken by Greg Bertish to inspire sick children to get better, to be optimistic and to never give up. Small people can do BIG things.
Greg hopes this journey of a real Little Optimist and also his children’s book about a little believer with a huge heart will help teach kids that being small, sick, poor or different is okay and that they too can survive and thrive. His story will inspire children and adults alike to believe in themselves, get better, be better and follow their passions and dreams.
