July 26, 2012 – Baby Born With Three Legs In Borno State, Nigeria
A baby girl identified as Nafisat has been born with many legs in Borno State, Nigeria.
Baby Nafisat was born to the Ahmed family in Bayo LGA of Borno state on the 18th of June, 2012.
The family’s joy quickly turned to sorrow as they witnessed many abnormalities surrounding her birth.
A surgeon at the Federal Medical Centre in Gombe states Nafisat needs intensive surgery to keep her alive.
Unfortunately, her parents have no means of paying for this expensive surgery.
They’re calling on Nigerians especially the first lady of the state to come to her rescue.
The medical director of the Federal Medical Centre in Gombe said the baby stands the risk of dying if the surgery is not carried out immediately.
Nafisat is currently in the Special Baby Unit at Gombe Federal Medical Centre and she is struggling with
- Imperforated anus
- Other multiple abnormalities
“The patient has to undergo a series of surgery in order to correct various enormities.” – Dr Adamu Madugu, the Medical Director of Federal Medical Centre, Gombe
Baby Nafisat is currently living on different medical gadgets and she needs N1 million for important corrective surgery.
Madugu said with N1 million, Nafisat would be able to pay for her surgery, drugs, investigation, pints of blood, feeding and accommodation.
“Unfortunately, the parents cannot afford the money due to financial constraints,” said the Surgeon who solicited that only government can help the poor parents to save the life of the baby.
We are appealing to good Samaritans out there to please help this baby girl in anyway you can.
