In line with JCI and United Nation resolution at the 2015 United Nations Global partnership summit, JCIN EKSU will be embarking on a week health project which is to promote goal 3 of the SDGs.
#Save-A-Soul is one the crucial project to be executed in this health week.
In lieu of this, we were able to get a soul who needs a chance to live again.
Kindly read below OMOTOLA's story:
Baby OMOTOLA as she fondly called by the Special Care Baby Unit doctors and staffs was born 42 days ago by a teenage mother of 17 years and a mechanic father. The female neonate was delivered by emergency caesarian section forty-days ago in the facility. OMOTOLA at delivery was found to have a BIG head for her age, OMOTOLA was manage for congenital hydrocephalus in conjunction with the Neurosurgeon who requested for investigations such as MRI for proper management.
This however it has not been done due to financial constraint.
OMOTOLA has also been scheduled for surgery but this has also not been done due to financial constraints of the parent and family members.
The head has been increasing progressively in size since delivery and if urgent surgical intervention is not done quickly, the baby will suffer further damage which may further compromise her future.
The hospital bill as at this moment is about #100.000.00 and the surgery with the necessary/materials is estimated to cost about #170.000.00 (Shunt-#40.000.00, MRI- #35.000.00, Theater- #60,000.00, Drugs- 20,000.00, Bed charges - #20,000.00)
The sum of all the charges would amount to 270, 000.00.
Not all of us can do great things but we can do small things with great love!
DO YOU THINK YOUR #500 IS TOO SMALL? NO.
