Destitute Afrikaner Van Zyl couple of Sundra smallholdings, Springs, needs medical treatment urgently – but there’s no money
Still no-one arrested for the brutal 7 Dec 2010 hammer-attack on the pregnant, sleeping Theresa van Zyl and her husband Steven in their Sundra home – and whose hearts broke anew when their newborn son died afterwards from still unknown causes…
The Tabita trauma-treatment non-profit organisation writes that on 7 Dec 2010 in Sundra South Africa, working-class Afrikaners Theresa (above. seven months pregnant) en Steven van Zyl were attacked with 4lb hammers whilst sleeping..
Their son of 14 months was asleep in his bed but woke up. Theresa was 7 months pregnant at the time with their 2nd son, born two months later, but who died within half-a-year from causes still unknown. The couple thus suffered through two major psychological and physical traumas within a very short time-period.
No fingerprints at crime-scene
To make matters worse: to date there have been no arrests of their black male attacks -- although some leads were available at the time. The SAPS took no fingerprints at the scene of the crime - with the SAPS explaining that 'the victims' prints were all over which made it impossible to get fingerprints of the attackers."
Steven was unconscious for 3 weeks - the doctors did not think he would survive due to the severe head injuries. Theresa was unconscious for 2 days. Their little boy was born on 18 Feb 2011 and passed away on 25 Aug 2011, laid to rest on the 3rd of Sep 2011: the results of a post-mortem examination undertaken to examine if the physical attack on the mother during the pregnancy had caused a deadly injury to the baby is still not available four months later.
And this family needs help very help badly – right now -- but gets none from any government sources. Steven requires medical assistance, writes Lita Cross Fourie, founder of Tabita. "Steven's right eye and socket as well as his jaw needs to be treated. During the attack, he was blinded in one eye and his teeth were broken."
"Also, they need counseling to deal with the trauma of their son's death which they are dealing with at this time.
"They are waiting for the autopsy report which has been taking a long time. I believe if they knew the cause of death they would resign themselves to the situation. There are still too many questions and they need closure. "
"Tabita provides far more than just financial and medical assistance.. we are there to help people cope with the pain of loss and to provide counseling."

Steven and Theresa Van Zyl fundraising initiative:
Background on Lita Cross Fourie, who founded Tabita:
Tabita was founded by an extraordinarily courageous Boer woman, Lita Cross Fourie. She started Tabita after finding her parents, grossly tortured and mutilated, murdered on their Ladysmith farm. Her parents’ convicted killers Ephraim Mokwana and Michael Maslamela had poured boiling water down her father’s throat before they shot off his skull (forensic pictures below). Her mother was shot three times – deliberately in such a way that she suffered for hours afterwards, bleeding to death slowly. Nothing was robbed. Ever since finding her parents, Lita Cross Fourie has been focusing on helping the surviving victims of such horrific injuries and their relatives. She has walked across South Africa to raise funds for Tabita and gives help to many tens-of-thousands of traumatised victims of farm-attacks. The hours of horrific tortures, humilations and deliberatemutilations of its Afrikaner victims are described by medical experts of the Trauma Society of SA as ‘wounds one usually only finds in war-zones’… and many of the victims helped by Tabita require extensive, long-term plastic surgery. The South African medical authorities however, refuse to provide free medical assistance even to the poorest Afrikaners who fall victim to such horrific crimes such as the Van Zyl couple.
Fiery European debate on Afrikaner survival:
Why are the Boer farmers always tortured so cruelly? http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2011/05/waarom-worden-de-boeren-zo-wreed.html
