An appeal has gone to well meaning members of the public to come to the aid of a two month old baby diagonised with a hole in the heart, Grace Oyewole.
Little Grace requires the sum of N3.5 million naira for the Cardiovascular Operation at the Babcock University, Ilishan-remo, Ogun State and there seems to be sight of help coming in her direction as at now.
In a letter of financial appeal signed by her father, Mr. Oluwaseun Oyewole, made available to inklinetimes, Oyewole who is a Clerical Officer in public service appealed to members of the public to come to the aid of his baby who needs to be operated upon as soon as possible.
The letter reads in part, “in an initial test carried out at the Federal Medical Centre, Idi- Aba, Abeokuta, we were given a bill of ten million naira (N10,000,000,00) for her to be taken to Indian after which a similar test was carried out at Babcock University and they agreed to perform the operation here in Nigeria at a bill of N3.5 million”
Baby Grace Oyewole is presently placed on an oral suspension called, “Oral Spironolacidine” to sustains her. However, as at now, poor baby Grace is getting weaker by the day and needs urgent assistance from good spirited individuals and well meaning members of the public to restore her health.
Confirming the operation to be carried out at the Babcock University Teaching hospital (BUTH), Mr Oyewole presented a letter signed by Mr. Abolarin Ayodeji, an Accountant at the Teaching hospital on the 16th of January, 2020 with an estimated bill for “VSD Closure with Conduit of N3.5 million which covers four days admission in Intensive Care Unit and three days admission in step down”.
The bill according to the letter from the Teaching hospital covers only the stated procedures noting that there will be additional charge if the patient stays above the stipulated days in ICU/ step down and any other incidental examination that is not part of the stated but may be needed.
For those who are ready to care for this poor young girl, kindly send your donations to her father’s account number as stated below.
