Hip Help For Bongo Roache

$3,532 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 49 people in 6 months
Bongo Roached is a certified Herbalist and Ancient Healer in the African Tradition. He who offers his wisdom to all who seek his council on the Western side of Jamaica. Bongo is a man who is never far from the bush, where he farms and reaps his herbs. On Dec 31st, Bongo stepped on a rock which altered his balalnce resulting in a fractured hip. As of today, Jan 3, he awaits transport to either Montego Bay or Kingston, where he will undergo surgery to put in a pin and repair the hip as needed. In Jamaica the patient buys his own "pin" and will need to have some money for life on the road away from home. Also, there is definitely going to be some recovery time needed and this will of course take him away from his life's passion. Even today Bongo said" I don't worry for I man know my Father watches out for me". This is always his outlook and the reason he lives & serves him fellow Souls so humbly. Thank you for any consideration. Blessings & Love to all- Mark

Blessings To all- Next to Last Update on Bongo Roache. ...Bongo was given the all clear from the surgeon and has returned to him home in Darliston as of Sunday. He is doing VERY well. He uses crutches to get around and can do everything for himself now. Together we have gotten him this far and the response had been lovely and heart warming. He is in need of a 2 burner stove & gas tank (imagine- he has always used wood fire to this day) and some cash for some day to day expenses. If anyone wants to give a last hand that would be lovely. I will do a last post when I can take a picture of him walking and waving to you all. Thank you again for ALL that everyone has done- this has been very Spiritually Reaffirming of Love over Space & Time and I give thanks ;)

Blessings & Love to all :) Bongo is well into his recovery and is receiving In Home Therapy at his sisters house in Portmore. He is already able to get up on a crutch and it wont be long until (6 more weeks) until he can begin to get around a likkl'. Thats so much to Oshun Chambers for her tireless efforts throughout- which includes travleing from Westmoreland to Kingston for all his important appointments- it is truly in times of need when thosw who you need answer the calling of the Most High and rise to the top. Bongo cannot stop Thanking all those who donated and sent up Prayers for him. He has been a pillar of faith and humble in his thanks. Blessings to all :) P.S.- Attached is my Favorite video of Bongo- credits to Matt & Jan Ruley who have uplifted Bongo is many ways :)

Blessings Good people :) Bongo Roache had surgery yesterday and was out and talking in just a few hours. He is in amazingly high spirits and Giving Thanks to Jah and all the peopole who thought of him along the way. I canrt thank everyone enough. There are some great stories of business, spiritual, political and medical people coming together to make this happen. It all really warms my heart and REAFFIRMS why Jamaica is great and of course reaffirms as well that Bongo is a very LOVED man :) I am going to ask these people if I can say some kind words about them because Jamaica is place of great Love- we all know this, but a good story is a good story :) Love to all- Blessings- mark

Good Day- We are almost 2 weeks in and I wanted to thank everyone for the donations for Bongo Roache. We are still a little short of what we need, but that never stopped anyone in jamaica yet.
As a part of the terms of GoFundMe (and just a good idea) they ask that I update people on how the funds will be dealt with. As I have become the defacto CFO of Bongo's situation (CEO is Sharron- Parris Oshun Chambers- who I can't thank enough for tireless efforts), it will be I who will be taking the funds (+sum) and delivering it directly to the hospital to cover their fees. There is also doctor fees, parts costs (pin for hip) and other essential personnel to be paid. It's about $1 Million total, but, "tings is inna da' works" ... and good people are still playing their parts, so- we shall see.
I truly send heartfelt thanks to all who donated to help a true Healer in need. Bongo sends his Love and Thanks as well...But, time to get him 'up and runnin'' so he can thank you himself soon enough...Blessings, Love and Thanks- mark
