The family of a stabbing victim is appealing for monetary donations to assist Shakeil Joseph, who is in need of medical attention overseas.

This is the family’s second appeal; the family reports that while they have received some support, they still have not reached their target.

Joseph’s surgery and travel expenses to Barbados are expected to cost up to EC $115,000 or US $42,000.

His brother Avoy Knight gave an update on how these fundraising efforts are going.

“We sent out some sponsorship letters to some businesses but some of them have yet to get back to me. So, most likely what we will be doing is a barbeque and car wash to raise some funds but things are looking up.

“We got some support from the government also, so it looks like it will be done in a timely manner but we are on a waiting list because of what happened in Barbados, so we are just waiting on that call from Barbados,” Knight explained.

Joseph, of Tindale Road, received stabbed multiple wounds about his body on May 6 the most serious of which was to his chest, reportedly near his heart.

According to Knight, his brother is in good condition.

“He’s good. He is just trying to get back to a normal life. He has aches and pains and ups and downs as expected, but he is doing okay,” Knight said.

Persons can contact Joseph’s mother Abril Mullin at 723-8953 or Avoy at 721-8670. Donations can also be made on the GoFundMe page Shakiel’s Emergency Heart Surgery.
