A man from Bonteheuwel in South Africa, who has been paralysed from the neck down after suffering a diving accident six years ago, was in a dire situation in his life.

Ricardo Julies has been paralysed for six years.

After his accident, his wife started drinking and the relationship fell apart. He was left alone with the children, and unable to move.

After hearing about Julies’ terrible situation from the interview, Ward councillor Angus McKenzie visited his home, in order to help his with his complicated lifestyle.

McKenzie with the children in the community Julies is from.

McKenzie gave Julies a new mattress, food and TV, and then delivered Easter eggs to all the children in the community. His old mattress was practically destroyed, and the children slept on duvet covers over metal frames, but a relative went on to also help, and donated them new mattresses as well.

“We want to thank the communities for their overwhelming effort in helping Ricardo and his family,” McKenzie said during his visit.
