My names are Georgina Waoyor. I am from the Volta Region, in Ghana.
Am seeking and asking for your assistance to raise funds for an eye operation.
I got injured a long time ago, while playing as a child in my family house in my home town. It so happened that while we were playing with my mates, a splinter of stone flew into my eye. At the time, we thought it was a minor issue that by washing my face with water; any dirt in my eye would be washed off. But that was the beginning of many years of pains in my life till date.
I went to a public hospital in my home town and the doctor then said I needed an immediate operation. He also was willing to accompany me on the trip for the surgery then, but due to lack of money to pay for the surgery and other stuffs, I could not make the journey. Since then I have not been back to the hospital again, since I don't even have the money to pay for anything.
This eye makes me very uncomfortable, among friends and neighbors. I find it difficult going out with people, because I am always insulted and laughed at by people. I am always sad and shy because of this. At times when the sun is scorching, I barely can see, my eyes keeps bringing out some wet slimy substances and my head aches so much.
All efforts I have made to raise funds for this cause from the petty trading I have been doing, has met with one form of disappointment or the other. I have been duped of cash in excess of over USD 3,500.00; by individuals who I thought where God sent and had promised to help me travel out for an eye operation in USA, UK and Cuba. But these people all turned out to be fraudsters, taking my money without doing anything.
I am knocking on your hearts to please donate any amount that you can to help me with the surgery, so I can go back to school and help myself. At the moment my family has abandoned me to care for myself. Especially my mother, because I would not agree to her suggestions to get married at a young age.
"Your act of kindness, no matter how small, will be very much appreciated"
