Hole-in-heart child left to her fate

Posted by Business in Ghana on June 15, 2009

OVER TWO weeks after The Chronicle revealed the pathetic ordeal of little Sandiba Sambil, a 3-year-old girl child with hole-in-heart condition at the Tongo Nutrition Rehabilitation Centre, the child is still being housed at the centre because there is no money to take her to Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for a heart operation.

It could be recalled that on May 13 this year, the paper carried a story under the headline, “Hole-in-heart child cries for survival.”

When this Correspondent contacted the Talensi-Nabdam District Nutrition Officer, Madam Agnes Atayila, to find out whether or not the child had been taken to Korle-Bu for heart surgery, as she had been referred from the Bolgatanga Regional Hospital, he was told that there was no money, thus the child was still languishing in excruciating pain.

    How can we help? Where do we have to send our donation? Please make sure every cent sent to the welfare of the girl is gone to her care.
    Thanks.

    In reading your article about Sandiba, my thoughts were, this is great that you are telling her story, but if someone wants to help, I would think there should be a fund set-up for this purpose or some specific information given indicating, how one can assist.
