This is quite alarming. A philanthropist has revealed his heartbreak after a woman whom he has been trying to raise funds for to treat her sick daughter, allegedly decided to deny her child medical treatment. According to Nuhu Kwajafa, the woman took her sick daughter away from a hospital in Abuja despite pleas from the nurses and others after N201,000 has been raised for her daufgter’s treatment.
It was claimed that the woman wants to be paid the money before she can give her daughter access to treatment, a suggestion which sounds shady.
Read below what the philanthropist shared via Facebook;
Yesterday evening, Aisha’s mother irrationally decided to take her daughter(Aisha) out of the Gwagwalada specialist hospital, denying her treatment. The nurses pleaded endlessly with her but she declined. After numerous phone calls, the mother finally answered our call (an hour ago). She said something to me that really broke my heart. Aisha’s mother wants to be paid, before allowing her daughter access treatment.
This situation where a parent denies a child access to healthcare, a basic right, is criminal and must be condemned. It is the same thing as denying an eligible person the right to vote or be voted for. These types of atrocities must not be allowed to thrive, especially against children, the future of our country.
With heavy hearts, we wish to inform the general public that we are not accepting anymore donations for Aisha. In total 210k has been raised, between yesterday and today. If it’s okay, may we channel the funds to another sick child? God bless you all.
