“We are set to leave at the end of this year to get started with the process. Ashline would also need to stay a few months there, for therapy sessions and to recover fully before making her way back to South Africa,”

“We are very grateful for this offer and it means a lot to us. We have since embarked on several fundraiser events which we hope the public will support. Several other individuals have also come forward recently to assist us with much-needed items for Ashline, which include nappies.”

But once the family has raised enough funds to take Ashline over for the much-needed operation, they would need to find another home, outside of Hanover Park.

“We cannot bring her back to this area, as ordered by doctors and other officials dealing with her case. She is still extremely traumatised. We are working on getting another home as we miss her dearly and want her to be around us daily, and for the safety of her wellbeing.”

“I need to be strong as I am the only one who normally sees to the whole family. For me it is very hectic, and to see her go through this pain and trauma is even more heartbreaking. She is my eldest grandchild and needs all the support she can get,”

“Ashline’s mother is also on drugs and does not play much of a role in her life and not at all recently. My daughter is not allowed to fetch her little girl and Ashline is our full responsibility now. This is my grandchild and I will do anything in my power to see that she is safe and smiles again,” Abrahams adds.

The family says there have been no developments and no updates from the local police since the shooting.

For now, the public is requested to assist the family by purchasing a ticket or two. A high tea in aid of Ashline will take place at Astra School in Montana on Saturday 4 August at a cost of R100. A masked ball will also take place at the same venue on Tuesday 2 October at a cost of R50 only per person.
