NewsDay Cares: Simbarashe needs $1 600 for operation


One-year-old Simbarashe Matiwa, suffering from an extensive cleft lip palate and lip bilateral is still in need of assistance as no sympathiser has yet come to his rescue. $1 600 is needed for him to undergo an operation.

The toddlers grandmother, Elizabeth Dembezeko, told NewsDay yesterday Simbarashes plight had not changed.

There has not been any assistance. Simba remains in the same pathetic condition and I continue to appeal for assistance, she said.

Simbarashes body is weak and he is unable to perform most activities expected of toddlers of his age. His grandmother said they struggle to buy the special milk and other medication he needs.

The cleft affects the childs ability to eat, speak, hear and even breathe.

Those willing to assist can contact Simbarashes grandmother on 0714 148 473.

Alternatively, they can deposit money into POSB account number 100310029814.
