Hunt to help Sophie

All proceeds going toward Sophie Marie Burrows

3 month old Sophie Marie Burrows was recently diagnosed with a rare liver condition called Bilary Atresia. Roughly 1 in 15,000 children suffer from this disorder that begins in infancy. From birth, or soon after, the ducts which are designed to carry bile from with the liver down to the gall bladder and small intestine become inflamed or blocked. This bile then backs up into the liver and causes scarring and damage.

Sophie has recently undergone emergency surgery to remove her gall bladder and her small intestine was cut and attached to the bottom of her liver. Her liver is in very poor condition because of the backed-up toxins and will eventually require a liver transplant.

Funds raised will be used for:

• Offsetting this initial first wave of medical costs that Medi-Share doesn’t cover.

• Ongoing medicines to help her liver continue to function until the transplant.

• Housing and food while in Anchorage for these couple of weeks.

• Flights between Anchorage and Port Alsworth for medical testing that will be done in the coming months.

• Likely trip to Washington in the coming weeks for an outpatient visit with Seattle Children’s Hospital to get an initial assessment from them.

The Hunt

Johan, Runé and our friendly staff will be delighted to welcome you to Oukraal Lodge. You can expect to experience a truly amazing African safari. We offer a various number of hunting, fishing and eco-tourism packages. We offer trophy and non trophy packages, wingshooting as well as custom hunting packages upon request. In addition to this, we offer three star accommodation at multiple locations due to a high number of non hunting activities in and around our area.

This hunt includes 1 of each


The Details

Clients fly into Johannesburg airport and then take a domestic flight from Johannesburg to East London airport. At East London airport I personally pick up the clients and then escort them to a nearby shop to purchase anything they need, want or what they have forgotten back hom.

From there we head out to the hunting ranch, depending on the time of the day there are normally snacks out for us to peck on, once settled we head to the shooting range just to make sure their rifles didn’t move off their original zero. When the client arrive a tad bit later to camp we do the range setup early the next morning.

After all the paraphernalia is over we plan the hunting trip ahead.

Mornings normally start before or just on sunrise, clients get to pick between a hot breakfast or just some yogurt, fruit, muesli cereal and coffee.

Snacks and lunch generally travel with us just because we can never predict what will happen out there.

Dinner is served not to long after we get back in the evenings, most clients are spent by the time we get back from the day’s hunting.

After dinner we sit under the stars around the camp fire and remind each other of the day’s happenings.

There is always a fully stocked fridge with all sorts of alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages. The cooler on the back of the pickup is also always ready with some cold beverages.
