Boy, 7 years, needs $8,500 for heart surgery to stay alive


Little Uthman Ayoola was born on 15th Nov, 2009. This little boy and the parents live at No. 22 Abeokuta Street, Egbeda -Lagos Nigeria. Uthman’s mother Halimat Ayoola is a petty trader and the father Hakeem Ayoola an artisan. When Uthman was 3 years old, he became very ill and the parents started running helter-skelter in search of cure for their son’s ailment. They took him to Mecure Health Care Limited, Lagos and after their echo test, they were referred to the Lagos State University Teaching hospital (LASUTH) where he was diagnosed, they confirmed that he had a hole in his heart.DSC_0001DSC_0003

Since then he has been placed on a life-sustaining drug that keeps him alive, they usually buy this drug every 3 weeks to sustain the little boy from breaking down completely. The purchase of this life sustaining drug has drained the meager income of the family. Today Uthman is about 7 years old and the parent still cannot afford to raise any money out of the required N2.5Million( $8,500) needed for the correctional medical surgery. This poor family is crying out to you kind hearted brothers and sisters to help save their child by giving your financial support.

The irony of this family’s bitter experience through this trial times is that they have written several letters to notable institutions and government department and none responded to help rescue this poor boy. The first was to DANGOTE FOUNDATION and also the LAGOS STATE MINISTRY OF HEALTH to mention but a few. This family is also a dedicated member of the Ansarul Islam Society of Nigeria and, according to them, they have made several efforts to get succor from the organization through their home Imam, but this has yielded no dividend. The family was at a crossroad about the plight of their little boy, they had even given up all hope, when somebody referred them to Project-Help-a-Child Initiative.

On the 10th of June 2016, the Ayoolas came to our office in Ikeja to solicit for our support to help save the life of little Uthman. As Mr. Ayoola was narrating the ordeal the family had passed through in trying to raise the money for the child’s surgery, Mrs Ayoola was weeping profusely. I had to console the family and assure them that even though everybody has forsaken them, God has not forsaken them. He will cause men to show them favor to raise the money for the surgery. The little boy too, who saw the mother crying became very emotional; I noticed He was gazing at me. As I looked at him, our eyes crossed, I could sense exactly what was going on in his innocent mind, “ please sir help my parents, don’t allow me to die”. My heart melted with deep compassion as I imagined the pains this poor boy could have gone through, all these years.

Beloved this is a clarion call to help save the life of little Uthman. This little boy has a great future ahead of him. He said he would like to become a doctor when he grows up. Please let us save his life so that he would be able to realize his dream!
