Ms Adelaide Naa Borley Bortier Afutu, a young lady who lost her sight while in senior high school, has had her story highlighted with people appealing for help for her.

According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Daily Graphic, Adelaide was in her final year at the Ghanata Senior High School (SHS) in 2013 when she got infected with Cerebo-Spinal Meningitis.

Even though she was compelled to see her education through, the condition aggravated and she had to cut short her academic pursuits.

Things became even more difficult for Adelaide after she lost her eyesight.

Since then, Adelaide has been battling with her condition because she is unable to meet the rising cost of treatment and other medical expenses, making any hope of her regaining her sight fading out quickly.

Her parents have also exhausted their savings in trying to remedy their promising daughter’s situation.

As a result, members of the Ghanata Old Students Association (GOSA) are appealing to the public to help the young lady in any way they can.

The appeal was made after the old students visited Ms Afutu at her residence at Kanewu, near Adjei Kodjo, a suburb of Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region.

The group presented cash and some items to her and appealed to corporate institutions and well-meaning Ghanaians to support her to realise her potential.

National President of GOSA, Mr Roosevelt Odai Otoo, said Ms Afutu is talented, especially in music, storytelling and poetry.
