South Africa - After hearing that funds were being raised for the hospital bill for young Sineziwe Khumalo, who landed up in a coma and on life support after her lungs collapsed while working on an event, the SOS Charity Fund were glad to assist with a donation. Thankfully, all’s well that ends well!
Belinda Saville, well known South African events and project manager, sent out a cry for assistance from the industry on the social media platform to cover medical expenses for Sineziwe. After being released from ICU, Belinda then welcomed Sineziwe into her home to assist her with the initial recovery.
“This is my fifth year in the events industry,” said Sineziwe. “That is how I came to know the amazing Belinda who has been my mentor since day one. My roles in projects have included assisting with general productions demands, seeing to all compliance issues, ensuring all talent operations are being met, managing the event site and making sure all runs smoothly. Thank you to Belinda Saville, Gabisile Nkabinde and Gabriella Peppas for their contribution to my growth in the most amazing way.”
Duncan Riley from DWR Distribution, who heads the SOS Charity Fund, was very pleased to hear that Sineziwe was on the mend. “It was an honour to be of assistance and we have to thank Belinda for initiating the drive,” said Duncan. “It made such a difference and demonstrated the real power of care and compassion we have for each other in this industry.”
