Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A young Ghanaian girl simply identified as Kakra seeks financial support from the general public for a surgical procedure to ascertain her gender.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on the verified Facebook handle of Zionfelix Entertainment News, the girl who appears to be seven years old possesses both male and female reproductive organs.
It is indicated that the male reproductive organ can be successfully gotten rid of in the surgical procedure but the cost is estimated as GHc 15,000 which is too much for her family to bear.
See the full report below:
Sadly, Kakra's mother, who relentlessly went extra miles to obtain funds for her daughter, sadly passed on in the process.
All contributions towards Kakra's surgical procedure could be sent to the MTN mobile money number, 0249514188 which bears the account name Esther Antwi Adjei.
It is hoped that the contributions would be gathered quickly so that young Kakra would be freed from the stigma that such a condition usually comes with.
Meanwhile, as YEN.com.gh earlier reported, a person who lives in the Eastern Region of Ghana has confirmed he possesses both male and female reproductive organs, a rare medical condition named hermaphroditism.
In an interview sighted by YEN.com.gh on TV3 Ghana's Facebook handle, Mr Brown, as he calls himself, mentioned that he grew up being confused as to whether he was male or female and, as a child, attending to nature's call in school was embarrassing as he possessed both organs.
"My parents named me Akua, but I felt I was more male than female and decided to rename myself Brown and stop wearing female dresses," he said.
