Portia Afriyie, a 25-year-old Ghanaian female Mathematics teacher has developed a medical condition called Avascular Necrosis of the left hip and needs surgery.
A report by starrfm.com.gh indicates that the young lady needs GHc 32,000 for urgent surgery or risks getting paralyzed as a result of the condition.
Portia is not only a rare female Mathematics teacher but the only one at the Katakyiwa M/A Basic School in the Atwima Nwabiagya North District of the Ashanti Region.
Dr Ballu Sibiri, the Orthopaedic/Spine Surgeon at the Wenchi Methodist Hospital, who diagnosed Portia indicated that she requires a total replacement of her hip through open surgery quickly before the situation gets out of hand.
According to him, the 25-year-old teacher's left hip bone has sharply deformed with all her cartilages gone, leaving just a little that they can hold to perform the replacement surgery.
What makes the situation a little dire is that the young Maths teacher is also a sickle cell patient.
It is confirmed that all donations can be made to the account name Portia Afriyie Obeng on 0245509036 to support her treatment
Meanwhile, Richard Frimpong, a Ghanaian man who was in the United Kingdom in 2020 and contracted COVID-19 went into a coma as a result and has woken up after eight months.
In a video shared on the verified Facebook handle of Daily Graphic, Richard was seen being heralded and cheered on by a parade of medical staff in the hospital who were inexplicably excited that he has come around.
The Ghanaian man himself was calm as he was being walked down a staircase, probably because he had little idea how much everyone longed for him to come around.
