Mflathelwa family express their gratitude

Lindiwe and Sibongile Mflathelwa at their home in Malvern.

The Malvern family of nine-year-old Sibongile Mflathelwa expressed their gratitude to the residents and local businesses for their support following the family’s request for assistance.

The family, with the help of the EXPRESS, made a public appeal for assistance to get counselling after Sibongile was knocked down by a car on July 2.

It was previously reported the driver of the vehicle lost control and mounted the pavement.

When the EXPRESS visited her home in Malvern last week, the nine-year-old was back at home after being hospitalised at Charlotte Maxeke Hospital for almost two months.

Her mother, Lindiwe Mflathelwa said people have been supportive.

“Some residents donated money and some even offered me a job. Unfortunately, I cannot accept these offers at this stage as I have to look after Sibongile. We still need counselling.

“Sibongile can’t stand the sound of a car. She always cries when she hears cars passing by,” she said.

Lindiwe said her daughter will only go back to school next year.

Anyone who would like to help the family can contact Anelisa on 061 241 5780.
