MAMA Ntombi’s Community Projects (MNCP) is appealing to the medical community to assist with restoring eyesight to six-year-old Ithabeleng Matiki.

When Ithabeleng was two when she was involved in a hit-and-run accident and as a result her left eye is permanently damaged and she has no sight in it.

Recently Solomon Qadi and Sandra Pillay from MNCP took Ithabeleng to see general practitioner Dr Leon Ehlers at his practice in Umhlanga Rocks.

“His main concern was the terrible rash covering her whole body. She has not been able to attend school where she was enrolled at the Umsilinga Primary School in Grade 1 this year because of the rash. We are grateful to Dr Ehlers for prescribing the medication to help clear the rash and to Brett Ward for paying for the medication,” said Pillay.

MNCP is appealing to a local ophthalmologist who would be willing to see her pro bono as she received no benefit from her Road Accident Fund claim.

To assist, contact Pillay at 033 342 6525 or email mncp@telk omsa.net
