Stories of our patients treated and those yet to be treated under our Health for All Programme (HAP).
Emmanuel Nyavor suffered myelomeningocele with mild communicating, hydrocephalus and lacunar skull and needed immediate surgery. His condition became worse since his parents couldn't raise the money for his surgery.
We saw Emmanuel late 2016 and after several hospital visits and diagnostics, he had his surgery March 2017 at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Ghana.
We are grateful to our health partner for paying for Emmanuel's surgery (pre and post care), food, accommodation and transportation for his mother during the entire procedure, the doctors and nurses and to all those who supported in diverse ways.
Emmanuel will be 4 years on November 30th 2020. He is doing very well and currently in Kindergarten 1. He is also smart and clever!
Yvonne was born in the eastern part of Ghana. At birth, the doctors confirmed she had sublingual swelling of in between the floor of the mouth beneath and within the tongue. Despite the need to have immediate surgery as the doctors advised Yvonne will not be able to suckle nor breath well in few months, her parents couldn't afford due to their financial constraints.
We met Yvonne in November 2016 and after making all the necessary arrangements, she had a successful surgery in May 2017.
Yvonne will be 4 years come October 2020 and during our visit to check on her, we caught her dancing with her friends. She is the in the red top dress. She is in kindergarten and loves to sing.
We are grateful to our health partner for paying for Yvonne's surgery (pre and post care), food, accommodation and transportation for his mother during the entire procedure, the doctors and nurses and to all those who supported in diverse ways.
