Perhaps, the most heartbreaking part of the story was when Veronica's mother mentioned that she has no job and the girl's father who is a trotro mate also abandoned her with the baby.

With no means of livelihood and no external support to care for her poor child, Jennifer seeks the support of the general public to help raise $2,500 (approximately) as the cost of the surgery.

In the video, Jennifer was seen holding a letter signed by one Dr Vincent Owusu confirming the condition of the child and the amount it would cost for the medical procedure to be completed.
