Little Kobby, a minor who is suffering from an unknown health condition yet to be determined by doctors has received GHC3,500 to undergo an MRI scan.
According to Crime Check Foundation, little Kobby is slowly dying because his father and grandmother cannot afford the cost of healthcare needed for the child.
The actual cost for the MRI scan is GHC2,600, but parents, as well as guardians of the minor, cannot afford to pay for the medical bills.
Little Kobby has had a difficult childhood because of the unpleasant life ordeals he’s had to endure.
The child's biological mother dumped him at a prayer camp after a so-called man of God advised Kobby’s mother to bury him alive.
And this is just one of many heart-wrenching ordeals the little boy continues to deal with despite his condition.
Passengers shift away from them in 'trotro' because of little Kobby's current state.
In the spirit of love, Crime Check Foundation presented a GHC3,500 cash amount to the child’s caretakers to enable them pay for the cost of the MRI scan.
Announcing the donation on social media, the foundation wrote: ''Little Kobby is dying slowly because his jobless father and grandma cannot afford the cost of healthcare needed for the child. How to raise two thousand six hundred cedis for an MRI scan to determine the cause of illness has been a problem for them...Through our donors, Pentecost Life Ministries Intl, UK, Mama Grace at Manchester, UK and Shiloh Prayer Fellowship, Qatar, we have given Kobby's family three thousand five hundred cedis to use for the MRI scan and other associated expenses...''
