The cost of the surgery was 150,000 in Euros which is 1,067,154.35 in Cedis and Rita's family was unable to raise that among themselves, for which reason the request was made for all and sundry to lend their support.

Reports from the Medical Student Association of KNUST reaching YEN.com.gh have confirmed that the young lady was able to undergo the procedure.

However, it is indicated that the need for interventions to ensure full recovery has led to the amputation of the lower end of Rita's right leg.

On the subject of health, YEN also reported that Afari Military Hospital, which is located between Kumasi and Nkawie in the Atwima Nwabiagya District of the Ashanti Region of Ghana, has been captured in a recent video.

Amidst the trending hashtag calling on the government to FixTheCountry, the video that was taken by a former Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister showed that the place has been abandoned.
