URGENT plea for Help!!

Benjamin 9 years
This is an urgent and serious blog entry which i really wish I didn't need to write. My best friend Tammy has been working in an orphanage in Johannesburg in the past and is going back to in the coming weeks to assist and give much needed care and love to these little precious children. She was told today that a serious accident has happened involving two of the precious boys from the orphanage who have been adopted by the loving family who run it. Both of the dear boys Tommy and Benjamin were hurt, but Benji is in critical condition with severe burns to his body. He needs your help, prayers and donations if you are able. The orphanage is run completely by donations from around the world. Click here to be taken to their web site TLC for more information about their ministry to the precious orphaned children of South Africa. Here is a photo of Benji and a photo taken yesterday in hospital. Although the family have adpoted Benji, problems with his birth certificate prevented him from being covered by the families medical insurance. So they are in desperate need of assistance. He has been admitted to a private hopsital after a huge deposit was made, and ongoing costs and payment to repay the expenses are now needed. Please if you have it in your heart and are able to help Benji get the ongoing help he needs to survive, please do. Donations can be made to my paypal account at and will be forwarded on as no easy way has been yet set up to receive funds from Australia. I will do a manual deposit into their South African account at a bank when funds are received. Many thanks in advance to the many generous donaters who will lovingly share what they can to help another in such need, especially at this time of the year. Many thanks and please feel free to ask any questions if you have any. I will keep you updated when I am updated. thanks again dear friends, Ali

Oh Ali.....I cannot find any words...I have just made a deposit into your paypal account, i wish it were more and that i had not spent all that money on myself today.....
God Bless you and your friend and your wonderful loving hearts. May God watch over these precious boys and ease their pain.
Please please keep us updated on their situation.

Much Love,

A terrible thing to have happened Ali, I'm very aware of the massive medical expenses in these countries, we really don't know how lucky we are in Australia. I'm about to make a deposit into your paypal account, you and Tammy are wonderful caring people, if I can help in other way possible please let me know
