A 3-year-old girl has reportedly died after the funds donated for her treatment were stolen by her mother before it could be done.
According to a post on Facebook, a donor had opted to pay to treat the little girl’s brain tumor treatment but wasn’t comfortable with giving the money to an NGO.
It had been given directly to the mother or the child but she absconded with the money, leaving her to die.
“Last month we had a case of a 3yr old girl with a brain tumor who needed N3m for surgery. A donor insisted on paying the money to the account of the mother, stating that he’s not comfortable with NGOs. We initially wanted him to pay directly to the hospital, but that was not possible because 80% of medical materials needed for the surgery has to be bought outside the hospital. Eventually the donor credited the mother’s account, and the mother absconded with the N3m. Sadly, the child died this morning. Rest In Peace Ada”.
