Urgent Treatment

My name is Liana Mattes.  My stepbrother, Dale Benson, aged 39, has been teaching English in Vietnam for the past few years.  Just last week he was diagnosed with very advanced colon cancer, and given a prognosis of one month to live if he does not receive treatment.   Because his teaching job had been suspended due to COVID-19, his travel and health insurance also lapsed.  COVID restrictions also mean that his mother is unable to fly to Hanoi to be with him.  So he is currently by himself in University Hospital in Hanoi.  We are desperately trying to bring him back to South Africa to receive treatment and be with his family.  Your donations will be used to fly him home with medical assistance.  My deep thanks and sincere gratitude for whatever you are able to offer.
