Story

Meet 11-year-old Richard who needs urgent help for an emergency procedure in Ghana. REACT Humanitarian Network met Richie in 2017 and has since donated a number of items including a wheel chair to facilitate his mobility and education. However, just last month we received an unexpected news from the mother that Richard has Mild Hydrocephalus and Arnold Chiari Malformation which means for the past 6 years, he has suffered a build-up of fluid in the cavities (ventricles) deep within the brain in excess. The excess fluid has increased the size of the ventricles and puts pressure on his brain. Doctors have said the pressure of too much cerebrospinal fluid associated with hydrocephalus can damage Richard's brain tissues and cause a range of impairments in brain function therefore Richard requires a blood augmentation procedure to address his situation.

Richard has been on the waiting list for years due to lack of funds and his situation is worsening such that he struggles to naturally ease himself and often times defecate and urinates on himself. Upon further assessment, doctors have agreed to conduct the operation for Richard at a discounted cost of 6000 Ghana Cedis (£1200 equivalent). In spite of the discount from the doctors Richie’s mother Safia still feels restless as she is struggling to raise the money. Safia said she has no hope and came to REACT for help. REACT is there to support but due to limited resources we are unable to relief the burden on both mother and son and require your kind support. We will be grateful if you can donate to help get Richard the medical intervention he requires in order for him to realise his dream of becoming a Banker.

Please remember nothing is too small.

Thank you
