A 1-year-old Ghanaian baby girl, Nhyiraba Tetteh-Quaye, was born with a hole in heart condition and is currently in need of a life-saving surgery outside the shores of Ghana.
The mother of Nhyiraba Tetteh-Quaye, Madam Rita Denkyiraa Ansah-Larbi, has appealed to the general public to help them raise part of the surgery amount.
According to the mother of 1-year-old Nhyiraba Tetteh-Quaye, her family has been able to raise $11,000 out of the required $15,000 needed for the surgery.
The family is now at their wit's end and are calling on benevolent individuals and organizations to come to their aid to raise the said balance for the surgery.
The surgery is scheduled to take place in India and the family of the young baby are doing everything to save the life of their daughter.
Madam Rita Denkyiraa Ansah-Larbi got in touch with YEN.com.gh and wrote: "I gave birth to my daughter with a heart defect in 2019.We sent her to India in March, 2020 for heart surgery. After the surgery, she was still having problem with her breathing so a scan was done and it showed she had problem with her airway (Tracheal). She needed another surgery to repair her airway but we couldn't get money for that so we came back to Ghana.We have been able to raise 11,000USD out of the 15,000USD...With your support we will be able to raise the rest and also for flight ticket, covid test and hotel..thank you"
The mother of Nhyiraba has provided her details on which benevolent organizations and individuals can send their widow's mite to in order to save the life of the baby.
In other news, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a 2020 graduate from Ghana's premier tertiary institution, the University of Ghana, has every reason to smile after finally acquiring his first degree which took him 10 years.
Mr Nana Boakye-Yiadom who got enrolled in the university in 2010 to study for a 4-year programme got sidelined by many challenges which saw him deferring a number of times.
The story has it that the course that should have been completed in 2014, took Nana Boakye-Yiadom an extra six years to be able to achieve.
