My deepest and humblest gratitude to Michael Nel and Cape Town Society for the Blind who have made  my life change dramatically with a very special & wonderful gift of a prosthetic leg.

In December 2009, i was involved in a serious car accident that fractured both of my legs badly. After some time due to complications, I had one leg amputated. Little did i know how my life was going to turn out from being an able person to disabled. In the midst of all the predicaments, I learnt to put my trust in the Lord God. Now i can testify that it wasn’t easy but I was worth it.

Two years after undergoing thorough physiotherapy at government hospitals and the never ending wait for a prosthetic leg from the government, i began to lose hope that someday i will be able to walk with two legs.

Just when it was the hardest part, through Cape Town Society for the Blind i heard about Michael Nel. On the 14th November 2012 i was happily surprised with the making of my prosthetic leg. Within an hour I began to walk on two legs. Amazing, amazing, amazing.

As I write this testimony I also happily write that a second leg has been made again by Micheal and his assistant Andrea. He has never asked me for a dime. Not only has Micheal given me this special gift but he cares enough to check regularly on how i am coping with it and if there are any problems.

My perception has now changed to “disabled but very able”. Thank you always and God bless you.

This letter to you is to affirm my appreciation for all you have done for me since I became an amputee. Your encouragement, positivity and belief in me have helped me in exponential ways to get on with my life.

You always have time for me no matter when in the day I have a question. I still work daily, drive my hands control vehicle, exercise 3 times a week with the help of a biokeneticist and have a full social life. In fact most times I have to remind myself that I am an amputee as you have never treated me as if I don’t have limbs – you have helped me believe that “Impossible is Nothing” (which has become my life mantra)
Coming to your rooms is like seeing old friends and nothing is ever a problem for you to help me with.
Once again thank you so much for all you do for me and other amputees – we are indeed very fortunate to have you.
