The DSF Donated N1.5 Million to Save 4-year-old Omonigho Abraham’s Life

The Dickens Sanomi Foundation donated N1.5 million to cover all the expenses necessary to save the 4-year-old Omonigho Abraham’s life and fully support his recovery, after he has been seriously wounded to his scalp by two German Shepherd dogs in the Igando area of Lagos State.

The DSF donated N1.5 million to the 4-year old Omonigho Abraham and to his family, for covering all the expenses necessary to save the boy’s life and fully support his recovery. Omonigho was attacked on the 25th September, by two German Shepherd dogs, receiving serious wounds to his scalp as previously reported by Punch.

The N1.5 million bank draft was given to Nuhu Kwajafa, coordinator of GIPLC (Global Initiative for Peace, Love and Care), an organization committed to Nigerian children’s education and medical care, by Keji Graham-Douglas, DSF Executive Director.

Omonigho previously received medical treatment at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) and N100,000 has already been spent to buy drugs for the boy’s medical treatment.

The money will be used to transfer Omonigho to an Egyptian clinic, where a specialist has agreed to carry out the operation meant to restore the child’s scalp. The allocated fund will also cover the air tickets for Omonigho and his mother, including two months of accommodation and feeding needed during the child’s recovery cycle.

This intervention is consistent with the stated commitments of the DSF,  who were pleased to help Omonigho Abraham and his family with the donation.
