The South Coast Hindu community gathered on Tuesday night in worship and prayer for little Keshivan Govender (3) who suffers from spastic cerebral palsy.

The Maha Vishnu Temple was filled with unity as the group sang melodies bhanjans in praise of the Lord.

“The support from all our sister organisations was overwhelming. Thank you to the members of the Maha Vishnu temple for all your hard work and for your contribution toward our expenses,” Mickesh Beharry from The Keshivan Govender Medical Fun said.

Keshivan Govender was diagnosed with spastic cerebral palsy soon after birth. Medical experts recommended that he receive stem cell treatment in Thailand. “The treatment will improve his current condition so that he could walk and improve his other sensory functions,” Beharry said.

“Keshivan cannot crawl or sit up on his own, he has just started to have some head control, and he has to be fed as he cannot bring things to his mouth as yet (no hand-to-mouth co-ordination). He does not follow objects with his eyes; he depends on sound to respond when someone speaks to him. He weighs about 12kgs. We have to carry him around as he cannot walk,” his parents Jason and Charmaine Govender said.

“Gods blessings for a speedy revovery and hats off to the organisers. It was a lovely spiritual evening at the Vishnu temple,” Vernon Govender said.

“This was the first unity bhajan held in Port Shepstone. I pray that it won’t be the last. Jay Shri Raam,” Beharry concluded.
