Update: Thanks to our incredible followers, we have raised the full target to get Thando a new leg! Your generosity will enable this young lady to have a ‪#‎secondchance‬ at teenage life. We will keep you all updated.


This is 16-year-old Thando and her angel Dr Monaghan.

Unlike most girls her age, Thando doesn’t cry over boys – she cries in pain and frustration.

Thando was born with a short leg which prevents her from being able to walk. She is forced to wear a wooden brace/leg extension, which, unfortunately, does not fit her properly.

Her family is extremely poor and relies on their local clinic, so when Thando’s wooden leg broke, she had to wait 2 weeks for it to be repaired. During that time, she could not go to school. Sadly, this is not the first time she has missed school for this reason, and it really upsets her.

This amazing man, Dr Monaghan, from RehabMatters, has offered to help Thando out and is organising a new leg for her at cost price – and will fit it for free! This is truly a life-changing opportunity for Thando!

We need your help! We need to raise R12,000 to get Thando the best leg possible and give her a #SecondChance at being a happy teenage girl.
