“Please, I am begging you to help me with whatever you can. Help me so I can remove the iron in my leg and walk again. I want to be free from this pain and suffering so I can provide for my family.” These were the words of Mrs Ruth Ehimhen, a woman who once was active and productive. She, however, had an accident in August, 2010 in which leg was badly damaged; since then life has not be the same again.
With support from family and friends, she has done three surgeries in 2011, 2012 and 2013. According to her doctor, it will take a series of surgeries for her full recovery.
However, having spent so much on the previous surgeries, Mrs Ehimhen and her family have been incapacitated financially. These financial constraints have halted the final surgery which the doctor’s report signed by Dr M. Moin, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Zimran Medical Centre, Benin City, puts a sum of N720,000 that is required for the removal of the implant in her leg.
She is appealing to the general public to help her become productive again by raising the required sum for the surgery.
