Naidoo family overwhelmed by support from Newcastillians

The Naidoo family welcomed the birth of Sasha-Lee on July 18.

After the shocking death of Newcastle K9 Unit’s Warrant Officer Sascha Naidoo, the community rallied together to prove the saying ‘together we stand’ still exists.

Denise Naidoo said she was flabbergasted after realising how much her late husband meant to his hometown, as her family received an abundance of support.

Mrs Naidoo extended her gratitude to the following:

Madadeni Provincial Hospital: “I would like to thank each and every doctor and nurse who stabilised my husband after he was stabbed and for giving him the medical attention he needed before being transported to Mediclinic Newcastle.”

All paramedic services: “Thank you for transporting my husband to Mediclinic Newcastle as fast and as carefully as you did.”

RTI, Newcastle 911, Ithemba Security and all other stakeholders who assisted with traffic flow: “Thank you for creating a convoy which assured my husband reached the hospital as fast as he did.”

Mediclinic Newcastle: “I would like to thank the staff for their fast action after my husband arrived. I also want to thank Dr Viljoen and Dr Herley, as well as the theatre and ICU staff for their dedication to helping my husband while he was hospitalised for those three days. They went above and beyond to accommodate us for the duration of that time.”

The Newcastle community at large: “From the bottom of our hearts, we would to thank each and every person who helped us while my husband was in hospital and after his passing. We are truly grateful for the tremendous amount of support and help we have received from not only Newcastle, but across the KZN province. I never really knew what a huge impact my husband had on the community until now.”

Close friends and family: “Thank you for each and every message, WhatsApp, phone call and prayer throughout this difficult time. Your love and support has meant the world to us.”

Although the family is still recovering from their loss, the birth of Denise and Sascha’s granddaughter, Sasha-Lee on July 18, has brought some joy back into the lives of the Naidoo family.
