Raising funds for my parents after the unexpected tragic loss of my brother to help them with all expenses.

Main image

Please help us raise funds for my parents.

My brother, Isak van Schalkwyk (31), passed away on 18 April 2019 in Cambodia where he went to teach English. Still so unreal.

My husband and I created this page to help raise funds for my parents. The funds will go towards the funeral costs, traveling costs and all other expenses after the sudden tragic loss of my brother.

There are no words for the pain. A bond that can never be replaced. A beautiful human gone too soon.

Use of funds

My husband and I would like to raise funds to help my parents with any expenses, flights, and anything they may need help with. The only thing we could think to do was to reach out through this for anyone who may want to contribute.

Cambodia  27 April 2019

We are in Cambodia at the moment during the most difficult week of our lives.

Like my dad said, we will walk in his shoes and listen to his story.

We went to meet the children from his school and they were so sweet and kind. We cried together and they gave us hugs. He was their 'giant teacher'.

The medical report stated that the cause of death was meningitis and he had a temperature of 42°. Our hearts broke.

His friends in Cambodia gave him the name Saamnang, which translates to "Lucky".

We will miss him and love him forever!

May peace greet him 🙏
