Fikile Khumalo’s life suddenly changed while driving home from RFM Hospital in Manzini, where her daughter had been hospitalized. Her husband, who was the driver, lost control of the vehicle, resulting in a crash that claimed his life, while she sustained severe injuries. “When I regained consciousness, I immediately came to the conclusion that my life had come to an end. I was unemployed and depended on my husband for our upkeep. Worse still, doctors told me I had suffered multiple injuries that would require quite some time travelling to see medical specialists.
Since that fateful day, life has been challenging for Fikile. In some instances, she would doctors’ appointments, as she could not afford to cover expenses. This unfortunate situation changed soon after she lodged her claim.
“I felt a burden lifted from my shoulder knowing that I had MVA’s support. I feel much better now, and I have learnt to follow the claims process and appreciate that it involves a number of visits to hospitals, especially if injuries are severe. I would also advise anyone who may find themselves in a situation like mine to work together with the fund by proving all the paperwork they will need in order to process your claim in time”. Fikile explains.
