5-Year old Needs Support to Correct Eye Defect

By:  Abdul-Iddrisu Faisel | Voltaonlinegh |

A 5-year old boy, John Ayivi needs financial support to undergo a surgery at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in order to correct an eye problem he has been living with for the past two years.

John, whose father died some months ago, lives with her mother, Ewornukunawo Akpokpa, a peasant farmer at Sokode Ando in the Ho Municipality of the Volta region.

According to a relative, Hannah Ashade who took John to the Ho Teaching Hospital on Thursday, June 27, the little boy had been living in pain and agony as his condition worsened on daily basis.

Miss Ashade disclosed that after the diagnosis, little John had been referred to the Korle-Bu Child Care Centre where he would undergo chemotherapy and palliative treatment before any attempt was made to save the other eye.

Though the exact cost of John’s treatment is not yet determined, it is obvious that he will need much more than the family can afford.

The family is therefore appealing to any individual or organisation who wishes to help John to contact Hannah Ashade on 0247903122 or make donations to 0248460441.
