  • Fikile Khumalo’s life suddenly changed while driving home from RFM Hospital in Manzini, where her daughter had been hospitalized. Her husband, who was the driver, lost control of the vehicle, resulting in a crash that claimed his life, while she sustained severe injuries. “When I regained consciousness, I immediately came to the conclusion that my life had come to an end. I was unemployed and depended on my husband for our upkeep. Worse still, doctors told me I had suffered multiple injuries that would require quite some time travelling to see medical specialists. Since that fateful day, life has been challenging for Fikile. In some instances, she would doctors’ appointments, as she could not afford to cover expenses. This unfortunate situation changed soon after she lodged her claim. “I felt a burden lifted from my shoulder knowing that I had MVA’s support. I feel much better now, and I have learnt to follow the claims process and appreciate that it involves a number of visits to hospitals, especially if injuries are severe. I would also advise anyone who may find themselves in a situation like mine to work together with the fund by proving all the paperwork they will need in order to process your claim in time”. Fikile explains.

  • In 18 May 2018, Mrs. Greenhead was walking to work when she was hit by a car from behind, unexpectedly. She sustained internal injuries that developed into complicated medical conditions. Upon giving her statement to the police, Mrs. Greenhead was advised to visit the Fund’s offices and lodge a claim, of which she did. Her claim was well received and liability was accepted by the Fund, to allow for medical referrals. Part of those referrals included a full schedule at Ekuphileni Clinic’s Physiotherapy unit, where she has concluded her sessions. I’m still recovering, but I feel much better. I am just grateful to be back at work and being able to support my family. Although I still have to undergo surgery, I trust that all will go well. One of the lessons I learnt from this accident is that it is important to following through every step lawfully from the very second of the accident and not to try negotiating with culprit. Accidents must be reported to the police and I wish people would not be tempted to agree to a cover up. As a result, I was able to get a police report which enabled me to visit the Fund to lodge a claim,” Mrs. Greenhead advised

  • As a long-serving police officer, Blessing had experienced first-hand the very real dangers of the responding to emergencies and solving crime. He can see the irony, and counts himself incredibly lucky, that his closest brush with death came in the form of a car accident. “I have worked as a police officer for a while now and I was involved in an accident while moving houses, having been deployed to a different station. So I said to myself, I’m not lucky to have had the accident, but I’m so lucky that there was an institution that made a lifesaving intervention,” he says. Blessing admits that even though Sincephetelo’s treatment and rehabilitation helped in getting him back on his feet, and returning to work, he misses being able to perform normal police duties, as he is still recovering. The outcome, and the Fund’s empathetic handling of his case, has instead given him a more positive view of his return to normal police routines. “My special message goes to people who cause accidents and decide to disappear without assisting those left at the scene. Let us do the right thing, which is not to run away. And those that already have claims, it is important to be patient and observe all advise and recommendations made by the specialists and those officers who help with treatment of your injuries,” Blessing says

  • Jude is leading a life he didn’t plan or envisage, and one that, in recent years, has included considerable challenges. Yet he says he wouldn’t change it for anything. He is a former rugby player and a biker, until he met his tragedy: he crashed his motorcycle onto a kombi that abruptly stopped as he approached behind. With the support of his family, and the encouragement of his fiancé and kids, friends, the SMVAF Officers and medical professionals, Jude has both accepted and conquered the injury he sustained in the accident. Jude speaks fondly about prospects of growing his budding truck business, and he credits returning to meaningful work as key to recovery. He has learnt to adapt to his new life thanks to the prosthetic leg, and, is very thankful to those who sensitised his family about the Fund in a time of dire need. While in intensive care in a SA hospital, he recalls that his medical cover had run out, and expulsion was imminent. His family helped lodge a claim, which triggered the intervention by Sincephetelo. “The MVA Fund came to my rescue just in time and assisted with my medical and rehabilitative bills. I was fortunate to hear about the Fund and the benefits they offer to accident victims and today I am able to play a meaningful role in my family. The attention and care of MVA officers played a huge role in ensuring that the loss of my leg did not affect what I love to do best which is the trucking business.”
