Ecomed Medical is giving back to the community in every way we can.

Read below just some of our heart warming stories 

Hailey Lindemann

Daughter helps grandma with collection for an oxygen machine.


Hailey Lindemann is an exceptional six-year-old who has a big dream to one day have her own jewelry shop. She makes jewellery, which she sells to her friends at school. Last year October, her grandmother, Lientjie van Niekerk, was diagnosed with Level 4 heart failure. Hailey decided to use the income from her sales to buy her grandmother an oxygen machine.


Hailey, her mother Martie Lindemann, and her grandmother came to visit GROOTfm 90.5.


Oxygen Concentrator Donation 

Ecomed Medical found another patient in need.

We stepped in to help her with a donation of an oxygen concentrator.


The Cradle of Hope NPC South Africa

The Cradle of Hope NPC South Africa are an independent social upliftment and community development organisation with their core focus being assisting women & children who find themselves in desperate need.

Ecomed Medical joined hands with The Cradle of Hope during the festive season to give back to the community and spread the festive season joy.


Execu-Med Sub Acute Facility 

On behalf of Execu-Med Sub Acute Facility in Krugersdorp management, myself and Sr Corrie Ayres, we would like to thank you for your generous donation of the oxygen concentrators.

Execu Med is a functional healthcare facility which offers a comprehensive medical service to variety of patients post operatively and post prolonged admission in an acute hospital. With your generous assistance we are now able to provide more patients with oxygen when needed.

We would again like to extend a warm thank you to Ecomed Medical for helping us and our patients.

Big thanks to Sonja who made it possible.

Single mother Noku

Single mother Noku really has been through the ringer, and it’s stories like hers that really pull at the heartstrings.


Losing two siblings in the space of a couple of weeks and being handed the responsibility of looking after their children, as well as her own, and all of this after spending the last year in chronic pain, after being injured at work.


Hot Cares just had to make a difference to her life this Christmas.

Nazareth House

Ecomed Medical visited Nazareth House recently.

Their unstoppable purpose has paved a movement of compassion and humanity – one that continues to build through the work of all who strive to make the world a better place.

Nazareth Care African Region turns 138 in the year 2020. Over the last 3 centuries, they have helped to significantly improve the lives of thousands of impoverished communities and suffering children. In 1991, Nazareth House was the first home in South Africa to admit babies and young children with HIV/AIDS.

Nazareth House gives everyone in its care the best possible care they need regardless of age, background, or circumstances.

We hope the two oxygen concentrators can assist many lives that pass through your doors.


Katrien and Rudi

The title of Katrien's cry for help was: 'No money just an ENGINE for our Bakkie'. Katrien and Rudi are in a deep hole.


Last year, while visiting Rudi's mother in Vanderbijlpark, a large part of their income fell away when the engine of their vehicle broke. Rudi not only did garbage removal for their own bread and butter, but also for a man who lives on the street for whom you could offer a job.


Rudi started this job when he was laid off in February last year due to Covid 19. After sending out a multitude of CVs to get Rudi a new job, and no response, they sit with their hands in their hair, with worries, but also with hope. It's little, but it's there!


Yes, sometimes it is easy to say that someone should make a plan and be proactive. But sometimes, someone just needs a push of HOPE, a starting point to a next chapter.

Anna's Portable Oxygen Concentrator 

Ecomed Medical are very fortunate to have joined hands with Hot Cares to assist a patient in need.

Anna needs to be on 24 hours Oxygen and was finding it very challenging during load shedding to keep her oxygen saturation levels over 90%.

Ecomed Medical received the request from Hot Cares to reached out to Anna and we donated a portable oxygen concentrator to assist during these very trying times.


We are hoping this alleviates the stress and gives Anna peace of mind during load shedding.

Morning Ecomed, 

Where will I start, not words to say thank you enough.

The news about Amanda hit us hard but didn't ask us for a moment why and why.

We just asked God to help and guide us so we could make it as easy as possible for her.

We didn't even know where to start and immediately within a week God had already sent us help by putting people like Storm and Ansie on our path.

The word thank you is so small but means so much. We can only be forever grateful to Storm and Ansie and everyone involved with the help of the oximeter.

We as a family sincerely care about this and know that Amanda is just as grateful for the Oximeter that helps her so much with breathing.

In the wake of the devastating fire at Elethu Cheshire Home for the Disabled a company has come forward to provide dignity to one of the residents who lost everything she owned in the blaze – including her electric wheelchair. Thank you Ecomed Medical

Ecomed Medical (Pty) Ltd is very proud to have recently donated 10 brand new hospital beds to the United Cerebral Palsy Association of South Africa situated in Townsview, Johannesburg.

The UCPA is currently home to around 40 children and adults who suffer from the effects of cerebral palsy. Public contributions are essential for the UCPA to provide specialised nursing care, medical care, physiotherapy, speech therapy, stimulation, schooling, food, clothing amongst other services for their patients.

We hope the donation of hospital beds will go a long way in improving patient comfort and care.

A big, heartfelt congratulations to the staff at the UCPA who continue to work tirelessly and take a lot of pride in their work.


Cindy and Rodney Stephens have sent a request to us regarding their 2-year-old daughter, Roney's little feet. She has been for treatment at state hospitals, but experiences the experience every time as extremely traumatic.


Cindy does not currently have a job and her husband does 'casual jobs'. She is currently trying to generate an income by buying and selling second-hand clothes.


The financial implication of such an operation is hundreds-thousands of rands.

Thank you SANCCOB for all the great work you do!


Ecomed Medical was touched by Ben and Donne's story.

They have been through a life changing experience and we wanted to help in a way that allowed them to spend time together.

The International Childhood Cancer Day, which was commemorated on 15 February, and GROOTfm 90.5 visited the CHOC house (CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA).


A safe haven for children and their parents who are undergoing cancer treatment, and do not have the finances or support while walking this path of victory.

There are currently 1736 children nationwide in the care of CHOC, 1435 families receiving counseling and psychological support, and 32 448 receiving overnight opportunities.


The CHOC homes not only provide a physical facility for children, teenagers and parents who need accommodation, but meals and the necessary support and stability in a very uncertain time.

Phuluso Nethononda

Ecomed Medical had the pleasure of making one little girls 4th birthday exceptionally special!


Phuluso Nethononda is a patient of ours and due to her condition has never been able to attend school. We found out she had a special wish for her birthday.


Ecomed staff contacted the parents, and we were told that her wish was to have a chocolate cake and stuffed animals. The oxygen department went to work and arranged a special cake baked by one of our own staff members with plenty of stuffed animals.


Since we all were not able to attend the party, the oxygen department send a Happy Birthday video with the surprise gifts and cake.


Phuluso was extremely excited and enjoyed opening all her gifts from us ….. and we now have one happy little girl on her Birthday.

Sarel Cilliers High school

Thank you so much for the kind donation of cylinders and nebulizers for the High School and Hostel.


They have had a few incidences of severe asthma attacks and they are 20 km’s from the nearest hospital so this will be a life saver for them.


The new Head Boy (far left) is a chronic asthmatic but still plays rugby and does wrestling so will become a peer educator for his fellow pupils as well.

Michel Goosen

Christmas came early this year for my dear dad who was blessed with the gift of life today! Friday 30 October marks the day on which we met angels on earth – Juanita Saaiman, Alma Basson and the rest of the exceptionally professional team from Ecomed in Krugersdorp.


We simply cannot thank you enough for reaching out to us and offering my dad (who only has one functional lung) a lifetime sponsorship for an oxygen machine.


You’ve not only inspired him, but also the rest of our family, to keep having faith and to live and breathe the truth that kindness and love will always win!

Howick Hospice

We recently posted about Ecomed Medical

 servicing our two oxygen machines free of charge.

Kosilan Naidoo, pictured below with Clinical Manager Charlotte Woudberg visited today and dropped off a third machine on loan to Howick Hospice.

We are extremely grateful to the team at Ecomed Medical for assisting us with a third oxygen machine.

Antinonette Marais

Nothing makes Ecomed Medical happier than giving back to our community.

Please take a moment to read Antionette Marais's story in the link below:

Thank you to Sonja, Nita and Storm for all your hard work and dedication in organizing oxygen for Antionette.

We wish Antionette a speedy recovery.



At Ecomed, we believe in giving back to our community.

A young man, Michael, shares part of his story with us:

Hi my name is Michael, I have Cystic Fibrosis. It is a disease that affects our lungs and organs, like the liver. Cystic Fibrosis is incurable and treatment is very expensive.

I received treatment for my disease at Charlotte Maxete Hospital, and the government do not supply us with Pulse Oximeter.

I just want to thank Sonja for the Pulse Oximeter that she bought me. I really appreciate it.


Mom Stienie

Mrs Stienie is a Diabetic and insulin dependent.

She has got Sarkidose, and 7 huge blood clots in her lungs, along with heart failure.

I received two most important phone calls ever - the first one was when they phoned me, "You must come to hospital, your organ's is on its way from George".

The second most important phone call was, when Sonja from Ecomed called. Thank you Michelle and Avick for delivering the Kingon machine at Anncron Life Hospital in Klerksdorp.


Woelwaters Pre School

Ecomed had the  honor of sponsoring Woelwater Pre Primary School, an underprivileged home for less fortunate children in Randfontien.


 Ecomed kindly donated first aid kits, together with a Christmas party for all 40 children. Fun was had by all with cupcakes, cold drinks, sweets and presents for each child.  What a fantastic experience to see the joy on each child's face! 


Alestiano Korkee

A two-year-old toddler from Parkdene had the freedom to take a trip away from home on Monday for the first time in a year and a half, thanks to the Eden Lions and some good-natured Samaritans.


Little Alestiano Korkee was constantly connected to an oxygen machine due to a lung condition. The distance he could move away from the house was determined by the length of the supply pipe connected to the machine in the house.


Mr. Campher

Mr, Campher, a 2 year old boy was permanently dependent on oxygen.

At the moment he has a power machine. His mom can not take him anywhere because the tank is too heavy. He can only be transported by ambulance for hospital visits.


Ecomed organised a light weight portable oxygen machine for Mrs. Campher so her son does not have to miss out on the adventure. 


Jorina Fourie Holtzhausen

Ecomed Medical you are amazing thank you very much for all your help with the oxygen, you are friendly, clever and fast and truly angels.

The best service I have ever received.


Pink Drive Midmar

Ecomed Medical participated in the PinkDrive 50th Midmar Mile which is the worlds largest open water swim.

They were incredibly fortunate to have a strong team of swimmers who raise funds through the Charity 8 Mile swim each year at Midmar Mile.

Well done to our Ecomed ladies!


Cupcakes of Hope

On World Cancer Day, Ecomed Medical participated in the Cupcakes of hope event on the 6th of February 2023.


Cupcakes of hope is very close to Ecomed’s heart as we cross paths with so many children with life-threatening diseases on a daily basis.

Ecomed joined hands with Cupcakes of Hope to raise funds for this non-profit organisation, selling 160 cupcakes on the day.


Chesed Jamu

Chesed Jamu was diagnosed last year in January when he was almost 3 years old with neuroblastoma. Chased was in ICU when he started chemotherapy which was done for 6 months until August last year.

Around June 2022 they did surgery to remove the tumor which was not a success because the tumor had grown around the main blood vessels in the abdomen.

From there we then proceeded to do radiation the whole month of October and part of November. Early December on check up the doctor said the cancer had moved to his neck so we started Chemotherapy to keep it at bay.

At that time his left leg was now very painful so the doctors gave him morphine. We went back last week Thursday for check up that's when he had to go on oxygen and received blood as his hemoglobin was very low. That was when we were told no treatment will continued as his bone marrow has crashed and therefore we need to go home and care for him there with painkillers.

Thank you for helping supply oxygen to the 4 year old child and loaning him a machine.

Ecomed and staff rock.

Liezel Meyer

Today we visited our Ecomed Medical Charista Chaz Grobler family,


We would NOT have come this far, if it weren't for you amazing people who have become such an Integral part of our lives, especially our girl's lives, and we are sooo extremely thankful to have you part of our journey!!!!!!!


Thank you for always making sure our girls are sorted and for being there for them at a moment's notice!!!!! We really do not see you as strangers or just an oxygen company, you truly are our family!!!

Our girls saw "outside" for the very first time ever, and they couldn't stop staring at the trees outside Ecomed, and just basking in the awesomeness of the wonderous creation of God's own special handy work.


Was such a HUGE reminder that we should all just stop and smell the roses, the nature, the fresh air, it was just so gobsmacking to witness how they were just in absolute awe!!!



It is with a heart bursting with appreciation and gratitude to God and Ecomed for the wheel chair that Eugene received.


This means the world to him and his family. I pray that God will bless Ecomed and everyone person that assisted with the arrangement to make this wish a reality.


There is not enough words to describe how much this act of kindness means to better Eugene's life.


The Love of Christ

TLC, 'The Love of Christ', is a children's home that was founded 30 years ago by a family, and has found families for more than 900 children during these 30 years.


Their starting point is 'we love, to let go', which in itself drives their team to get a baby placed with a family as soon as possible.


One of their big wishes is to put up a sign outside the gate that reads: 'The happiest place on earth'. And, that's exactly what our experience was with our visit.


What makes them different? There are so many elements! They not only take in babies, but sometimes also their mothers - to whom they then give the facilities to 'foster' their own child, as they refer to it. TLC's staff refer from early on, and acknowledge the children's 'tummy mummy' and explain to the children why they cannot live permanently with their 'tummy mummies'.

Mari and Drikus got an opportunity to live in a 3x6m 'Wendy house' near Drikus' brother. Here they will once again be surrounded by family and the necessary support for that #HOOPStoot for which they have been praying for so long.

Tebogo Maredi is a 32-year-old man who lost his job as an operational manager due to distractions and then decided to make a difference in Soshanguve community. He started educating children on how to treat animals - with love, respect and compassion. With initiatives like the “Walk the Dog Challenge,” he taught them that a dog can be so much more than a pet – a companion, a lifelong friend, and someone to talk to when circumstances at home get tough.

Ronan Benson was born on the 02 September 2021 and has not had an easy start to life.


Ronan has been admitted to hospital on numerous occasions with nutritional issues, severe reflux, pneumonia, and his oxygen levels that are low.

This little boy’s parents have not only struggled with his health but due to finances they were only able to see Ronan for 15 minutes a day when they could afford the transport.


For Ronan to be able to go home, he requires an oxygen concentrator to sustain his oxygen levels.

Ecomed Medical stepped in and donated an oxygen concentrator to assist Ronan on this difficult journey.

Ronan is now home with his family.

Little "Bumble Bee" had a touch-and-go start to life. As a newborn, she contracted meningitis in hospital, had a stroke from the medication, which left her with cerebral palsy.

Thank you to Jacaranda 94.2 and the Good Morning Angels for allowing Ecomed Medical to be a part of this amazing story.

Elke Jacobson

Ecomed Medical had the pleasure of donating a portable oxygen concentrator to Elke Jacobson, a 12 year old girl.

Elke was diagnosed with chronic bronchitis in 2014. The doctors took her out of school as she had to be on oxygen 24/7.

Elke was gifted with a home oxygen concentrator but that meant she had to be home and could not enjoy her normal activities like going to school, attending the church services or even going into town with her family.

Ecomed donated a portable oxygen concentrator to Elke so she can start to enjoy her activities and live life to the fullest.

The Ecomed Team wishes Elke all the best!

Belinda, who was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis, is a single mother of 3 and is only receiving a small disability grant. Belinda only has a standard oxygen concentrator at home that she is connected to 24/7 which her medical aid does pay for but they will not pay for a additional portable unit.

Simon Makgobela

After years of dreaming to participate at the Paralympics as a cyclist, Simon Makgobela from Munsieville has now decided to take up tennis to reach his dream.

After reading about Simon in the News in 2019, Greg de Freitas, the director of Ecomed Medical decided he wanted to help.

Simon told him about the train accident in which he lost his legs at the age of 16 and how important cycling was to him. He was struggling to provide for his wife and four kids, and make enough money to compete in cycling races. He had to depend on donations which he mostly received by standing on street corners.

Greg said he was amazed by Simon’s courage and attitude, and he wanted to help Simon to have the same opportunities as any able-bodied person. He did not want Simon to worry about providing for his family – he wanted him to focus only on his dream, so he has been helping the family out with R10 000 per month to survive.

Simon also mentioned to Greg that he would like to start playing tennis, and with the help of a few well-placed connections Simon started taking tennis lessons.

Simon explained he tried to be the best in cycling as he wanted to have a way to support his family, but getting sponsorship was difficult. He now only cycles for fun and exercise.

“Maybe tennis can take me far and one day I will be able to afford a nice home for my children to stay in,” Simon said.

He added that he would like to thank Greg who helped him a lot. He wants to make Greg happy and proud. His dream is still to go to the Paralympics but this time it won’t be in a cycling chair, but in a specialized tennis chair.


Annette Claassen

It is with great gratitude that we as a family today would like to thank Ecomed for donating Annette Claassen's wheelchair.

Annette was in the Intensive Care Unit of Charlotte Maxeke Hospital for a month with heart problems where we lost her almost 3 times, she was connected to Ventilator and recovered remarkably from it but has now lost the feeling in her legs, Doctors are doing tests and they found out that there was a tumor on Annette's spine, a biopsy would be done to see if that could be the cause.


We would like to thank Mr Greg De Freitas very much for the donation, and through that Annette can now move around with ease, even to the good samaritans Michelle Laufs and Sonja Nel without you it would not have been possible Goodman thank you very much for your sacrifice and time you took to unload the wheelchair for her It's so good to know that there are more Angels coming your way.

Well done Ecomed team.


Revan du Toit

Revan du Toit is a 6 year old boy who was diagnosed with microcephaly, cerebral palsy and epilepsy.
