Luwayne and Crystal Bouwers married in 2016, they moved to Dubai, have 2 daughters and only 3 weeks after the birth of their 3rd daughter, Crystal suffered a brain haemorrhage. Luwayne is pleading for help to bring his wife back home to Cape Town.
Luwayne Wonder, as the entertainment world knows him, is a DJ, MC, radio host and an ex Good Hope FM presenter, so no stranger to our ears. Crystal is an SEO Client Services Manager. Their daughter Gianna is seven, Mila is three and on 21 September 2020, they welcomed baby, Alaia.
The Bouwer’s currently live in Dubai but hulle is Vannie Kaap, and they need our help. Desperately.
On 5 October, the Bouwers’ lives changed forever
A mere three weeks after giving birth to Alaia, Crystal suffered a devastating brain haemorrhage. She has since undergone brain surgery, multiple procedures and tests. She has not seen her daughters since being admitted.
On Thursday Luwayne posted a heart-wrenching video, explaining that he needs to raise R500 000 to get Crystal home. She cannot remain in the UA any longer. She has to be medically transferred from the hospital in Dubai, where she is in ICU, to Tygerberg Hospital in Cape Town.
Due to Crystal’s delicate medical condition, she will need to fly home on a stretcher. The stretcher can only fit if the airline removes nine seats from the aircraft. Luwayne will need to pay for those nine seats. The R500 000 bill will also cover ground support and a special lift that is required to hoist the stretcher safely into the aircraft. Crystal needs to get home as soon as possible so her process of healing can begin.
Here’s how we can help
Luwayne’s friends in the industry are rallying together to raise the funds he needs to get his family home. They are hosting an online event called, Bringing the Bouwers Back Home, on 22 November 2020.
Ten thousand tickets need to be sold to reach their R500 000 goal. Totally achievable if we keep doing what we do best, like and share!
Purchase a ticket, for yourself and soema for all your brasse. Your R50 can make a difference in the lives of three little girls who really need their mom to get better. The outpouring of support that the Bouwers have received thus far is testament to the amazing human beings they are.
Let us follow suit and support them; 2020 has been inexplicably hard, hard enough! We can be part of the reason the Bouwers end the year off on a positive note, together, at home.
