Naila Yusif, a single parent could not control her tears and hide her joy as she now hope to see the end of the 7 years hydrocele pains and trauma she was going through.
Naila Yusif is a seamstress apprentice and a mother of a 7 year old boy suffering from hydrocele since birth, but could not afford the cost of surgery to free the kid from the situation.
She shared her sad story with the media at the Sunyani Municipal Hospital theater where her little boy was undergoing free surgery by the Suncity Medical Outreach exercise.
She was grateful to Mr. Ransford Antwi, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Suncity Radio in Sunyani for the kind heart to save lives in the Bono region including her 7 year old hydrocele patient.
The case of Appiah Emmanuel, a father of 9 year old boy was not different and reined blessings on Mr. Antwi.
About 40 Doctors and medical professionals from Ho, Tamale, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, Sunyani Regional and Municipal Hospitals, with very high level commitment and passion are undertaking the surguries that started Wednesday 26 to Friday 28 October 2022.
Dr. Robert Arko, the Medical Superintendent and surgical specialist at the Sunyani Municipal Hospital told the media they hope to do more than150 different surguries by the end of the 2022 Suncity medical outreach exercise.
Only the national health insurance card was required to be taken care of, in health conditions including Fibroid, Hydrocele, Hernia, Ovarian Cyst and prostate issues.
Dr. Arko pleaded with well to do individuals in Sunyani and the Bono region to emulate the kindness of Mr. Antwi and support exercises of that nature periodically to help save more lives of many Ghanaians.
“This is my birthday gift for the people of Sunyani and Bono region, not that I have much, but I love, and makes me joy to share the very little I have with others”, said Mr. Antwi, the initiator of the ongoing free surgery exerciess.
