Villiers: a child in need

Villiers has been diagnosed to have a defective gene causing Cornelia de Lange Syndrome

Villiers Nel was born on 9 March 2007 in Stellenbosch South Africa.



He was diagnosed as having a defective gene in April 2008 by Prof. Grietjie de Jongh of the Medical faculty of the University of Stellenbosch. Receiving a diagnosis of CdLS can be overwhelming. A lifelong process of challenging and re-challenging feelings, thoughts, actions begin. The probability of that happening to a baby is the same odds as winning the national lottery. In short - Villiers needs a lot of help in this life. His immune system is very vulnerable an his medical cost is extremely high. He also needs special attention to develop to the best he ever can be. We do not know how far he is going to go in life. As an indication, at 2 months his sister was capable of more than him at 2 years. He needs help. This is almost an understatement. Long term financial planning needs to be done as he probably wont be able to care for himself. In the short term he needs expensive therapy. His medical bills up till now was extremely high. 

His mother and father cannot provide for all of his needs. They need your help.                                     Therefore we offer you a chance to give  Villiers donation of you choice.                                 Every small donation is going to help a lot. Repeating small donations is an excellent gesture.                  He stole our heart. Let him steal yours too!  "Adopt" him as your own.
