Lance Minnies survived the devastating blaze that claimed the lives of eight people in Mitchells Plain on June 11.
But the struggle for this 16-year-old and his family isn't over after suffering a relapse skin infection at Tygerberg Hospital.
Minnies had 99% burns to his body and is recovering in ICU following complications with his skin graft operation.
His body is not responding to donor skin and the doctor's are battling to control the infection on his leg.
Family spokesperson, Wendy Williams, explains that the teen's parents are often unable to visit their son because of the costs of travel and limited work opportunities.
The immediate need for the family is transport money, while a basic prepaid phone has been bought for them to communicate.
After the horrific tragedy, the family faces serious financial constraints and could use any assistance possible.
