A friend in need- Elsie and Samantha - Hot 91.9

Samantha got in touch with Hot Cares to ask for assistance for her fellow colleague Elsie. They both work at a healthcare centre and unfortunately, Elsie is going through an extremely difficult time. Elsie and her husband Pamfi have two wonderful children, a 4-year-old called Justine, and a bouncy six-month-old son called Francis.  They recently bought their first home, a flat in Ferndale.  A happy complete family.  That was, until two weeks ago.

 

Pamfi was working long hours from home, and he started to feel thirstier than normal. He put it down to the long hours, but unfortunately it was much more than that.  He had gone into kidney failure and was admitted to hospital immediately.  He was diagnosed with Covid-19, and they started dialysis for his kidneys. Sadly, his body did not respond, and he passed away six days later.

 

Elsie now finds herself having to deal with the emotional roller coaster of having to be mum and dad to two little children, grieve the loss of her beloved husband, and try to ensure that they do not lose their home.

 

Hot Cares thanks Samantha for her contribution, friendship and for reaching out to Hot Cares for assistance.  We want Elsie to know that she has many people standing by her during this immensely difficult time, and that Hot Cares will help lighten her load by giving her R5000 towards her needs.
