AFRICAN ACCESS CEO PLEDGES R50,000 FOR BOY WITH CEREBRAL PALSY.
On Monday 13th February 2012, The Cape argus published a heart-warming story about how the plight of adam Langley, 7ears old, touched the heart of African Access Holdings CEO Shaun Battlemann, whilst on a flight from Cape Town to Johannesburg.
Mr Battlemann was on his way to the bathroom when an air hostess (Tracey Field of SAA) told him about a boy, a former colleagues son for whom she was trying to raise funds and whom happened to be aboard the same flight.
The child, Adam Langley, suffers from Cerebral Palsy - a disorder that affects the motor aspects of the brain. He is also a spastic quadriplegic - thus unable to use all four of his limbs and has limited control of his head.
The family's hospital bills were surmountable (Over R1 Million) and they were struggling with Adams daily medical and financial demands.
Mr Battlemann was so touched by the hostess's concern for another human being - something he felt is rare in our world today, that he pledged R50,000 to the family. The warm hearted CEO and CFO of African Access Holdings, Moosa Ntimba, met the 7 year old and his parents, Hayley and Clint Langley to give them the good news.
Overcome with emotion, they were speechless and just so thankful. Mom Hayley said that Mr Battlemann had changed their lives in so many ways. She said they were in the process of a setting up a trust fund for Adam. This would assist for his care for as long as possible.
'Thank you Letter' and Update on Adam & the Langley's progress:
'We are so thankful for miracles which have happened over the last months. Since the fund raiser, Adam and his parents lives have changed so much. Adam's future is now filled with hope and possibility'.
