May 4, 2017 – Kate Henshaw Backs Out Of Baby Michael Alvez Case As Family Lawyer Requests For Audited Account Of His Medical Fund

Project Alert & Kate Henshaw & Others Accused Of Spending Baby Michael Alvez Medical Fund For Refusing To Honour Lawyer’s Request

Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw, says she and her friends have made urgent arrangement to return the funds raised for Michael Alvez, a two-year-old boy born with an ulcerous growth in the face.

Henshaw added that she had asked Nigerians to stop paying into an account opened for the victim’s treatment, adding that the development was as a result of the request of the family that she stopped assisting the family after disagreements over Michael’s welfare.

The agency carrying out the fundraising for Michael, Project Alert said it was worried by the way family members are handling the 2-year-old baby boy in the absence of his mother, who is not in her right ming.

Project alert wrote the Lagos State Government on November 18, 2016, asking for a shelter for Michael.

The state government, in its response in December 2016, approved a home for Michael, which was allegedly rejected by the family.

The child’s aunt, Sidi, was said to have again asked the government to release the child to her.

A letter from the Lagos State Government, dated February 23, 2017, and directed to Sidi, approved the request.

By March 3, a lawyer representing the baby’s family, E.G. Adelemoni, wrote to the management of Project Alert, demanding a statement of the audited account of Michael’s medical fund.

Adelemoni, in the letter, said the demand was to ensure that the money was used for what it was intended, including an overseas treatment for Michael.

He threatened legal action if the request was not acceded to within seven days of its receipt.

A reaction from Project Alert’s legal officer, Benjamin Odeh, stated that Henshaw, Aramide Kasunmu, and members of the public were the donors to the account, hence the fundraising team were accountable only to them.

On Wednesday, Project Alert said it had agreed with Henshaw and Kasunmu to return the money to the donors.

So what does it take Kate Henshaw and others to provide an audited report to Michael’s family lawyer????

Why the rush in returning the money to the donors if they have no skeleton in their cupboard?

  1. HENSHAW ..Kukuma return their money and clear ur reputation.it seems that the family cares more abt the money rather than the childs welfare.

  2. The main thing here should be that the money be used for exactly what it was raised for, that’s, the child’s operation. If Kate Henshaw did not get involved in the fundraising, I don’t think most Nigerians would have helped.

  3. Recurring decimal! Family members doing nothing to help but immediately outsiders raise money they initiate actions to high jack the management of the money not minding whether or not the child gets treatment. It happened when Toyin tried to help someone and now this. Return the child to the aunt and let the world see how they handle the situation.
    All these attitudes discourage people from helping others. Mchweeeeew!

  4. They’re having helping since 2016-2017, pls are they waiting for the boy to die before they will fly the dead body abroad

  5. They’ve been helping since 2016-2017 I guess Kate henshaw, Aramide Kasumu and the NGO Josephine Effah is waiting for baby Michael to die before they will help… I thought they said they don’t have money in baby Michael’s account to fly him out for surgery abroad… this is my no 08038146799…. anyone that cares to call this no to get full details…

  6. Kate Henshaw, Aramide Kasumu and Joseph Effah project alert, went to michael house at irawo and promise to help them fly the boy out for surgery and for them to tell the family after a year no money in michael’s account.. so they have such money.. haba

  7. Where was the lawyer and the family since the baby has been in this condition, and God has raised someone as a help for the survival of the baby, one funny lawyer in agreement with a funny family wanted the fund audited? I think this funny development has upset a good heart, and I WILL DO EXACTLY WHAT HENSHAW HAS DONE IF I WERE TO BE IN HER SHOE. I will advise that Henshaw should do her personal donation to the baby and no more to spare head the project. What the family should after is to encourage a good heart of help and pray for successful operation for the baby and not to be running after some money they do not understand how God brought it.

  8. I am Sidi Ezeanyeji the Aunt to Baby Michael. I have been involved in the care of the baby since he was brought to me and the entire family by his mother. This is long before Kate Henshaw or Project Alert became involved. We the family allowed Kate Henshaw and Project Alert to help stepping in based on promise of taking him abroad for surgery However, disagreements began when project alert began to administer drugs different from those prescribed by doctors at LUTH. Subsequently, officials of the social welfare department of the ministry of youth and sports threatened to take the baby to a motherless babies home. It was at this point we decided to request to have baby michael back in our custody as we are not ready to loose our child. We contacted our lawyer who wrote the Attorney general of Lagos state copying the ministry of youths and sports and Project Alert. It was after this they released the baby to us. As a person, i am currently responsible for two other children borne by baby michael’s mother. We still need help for baby michael and we urge Nigerians to please help save a poor child’s life.

  9. This is what they’ve been doing to innocent and poor Nigerians in the pretense of helping them. Government should please look into all Ngo’s most expecially Project Alert Non governmental Scam profitproneurs
