Ubuko is a grade 8 learner at Selborne College who was diagnosed with meningococcal septicemia when he was just 2 years old. The result of this infection has lead him to lose both legs and quite a few fingers.

We, as a group, want to do whatever challenge we can to help him, as we can’t imagine how many challenges he has to face on a daily basis that he has no control over. We admire him for his determination and the smile that he wears everyday on top of all the struggles that he faces.

We believe that he deserves an opportunity to make his life easier and to alleviate some of the struggles he faces in his everyday life. We have created this campaign and taken on this challenge, because we, as a group, strongly believe that no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

“We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”– Ronald Reagan
