12 hours ago - An indigent family in Ikare, Akoko North East Local Government Area of Ondo State has appealed to governments, corporate bodies and public 

An indigent family in Ikare, Akoko North East Local Government Area of Ondo State has appealed to governments, corporate bodies and public spirited Nigerians to come to the aid of their eight-year-old daughter Saidat Saliu who has a heart disease.

Mr and Mrs Adeyemi Saliu whose daughter was diagnosed with heart disease two years ago said they cannot afford the N2.6million needed to rectify the defect in her heart at a foreign hospital.  The primary two pupil of Cornerstone Nursery and Primary School, Ikare Akoko, was on October 2012 reported by the Medical Director of Comprehensive Medical Centre, Iwase, Oka Akoko, Ondo State, Dr E.A Olorunfemi to have developed signs and symptoms of heart disease when she was three years old.

According Dr Olorunfemi these signs made the hospital authorities to refer her case to a cardiologist who carried out some investigations on her and discovered that the girl has congenital heart disease.

The October 2012 health report on the little Saidat made her parents who are peasant farmer and petty trader respectively, to take her case to the Kanu Heart Foundation.

Noting that the patient, Saidat is from indigent family that can hardly afford to even buy the basic palliative drugs for the girl, the foundation in November 2012 launched an appeal to save the life of the little girl.

The foundation according to an SOS letter dated November, 30 2012, revealed that Saidat’s condition then required an urgent open-heart surgery abroad due to the absence of the requisite medical facilities for “this risk” surgery in Nigeria.

As at the time the appeal was launched, the foundation sought to raise a total sum N1,632,000 to subsidise the cost of treatment, accommodation, transportation and feeding throughout the duration of her stay overseas.

According to the letter, the foundation could not on its own shoulder the responsibility of the cost of the treatment, stressing that she was under close medical observation as her case was severe while her doctor advised that the surgery be carried out urgently to avoid complications.

Unfortunately, the appeal did not yield the desired result as the parent could not raise the N800, 000 which was the 50 per cent of the money required for the surgery.  Saidat was thereafter taken back home.

However, the condition of the little girl, who is now almost eight years old, has deteriorated which compelled her parents to rush her to Wesley Guild Hospital Ilesha, Osun State.

According to the father, they had been going to the hospital since last year and this has gulped all what the family could raise.

The frequent visit to the hospital had been affecting her education as she is now in Primary Two when many of her peers are already in Primary Four.

Ironically, the family, which could not raise N800, 000 in 2012, is now been told to urgently look for N2.6million for Saidat to live, due to the deteriorating condition of her health and the rate of inflation Any assistance for little Saidat should be channeled through her father’s bank account at Skye Bank with the name Saliu Adeyemi, account no 1761694126 while he can be reached on telephone number 

07066132323.

Late Adenuga and the twins she raised Late Adenuga and the twins she raised
| credits:
A few shining souls hear the summons of God, voices issuing assignations. Others hear nothing, but in pursuit of the things they hold dear, quietly fulfilling a calling.
Ige Idris rises at dawn. Indeed, he must. There are dozens of children to be washed, clothed, fed and ferried to school, and, alongside his sister Joy, he oversees the process. In the evenings, the children eat dinner, clown around, do lessons and school work, watch TV, pray and go to bed. Come morning the day repeats itself, with slight variations. It has been so for many years. Ige and Joy Idris cannot oversleep, take the day off, or go on holiday. They are in their twenties and they run an orphanage.
Oyiza Orphanage was established by their mother, Dr. Oyiza Adenuga, a woman so extraordinary that, five years after her death, she is still remembered and mourned by the huge numbers of people whose lives she has impacted. Adenuga once found a mad woman wandering on the streets with children in tow. She took the woman in and cared for her and her children. When she found abandoned and malnourished twin babies she took them in and nursed them to robust health. She ran a maternity centre for two decades, with services so cheap they were virtually free. Because she was always taking in abandoned children and orphans the suggestion was made that she formally establish a home for them. And she did, using her own home.
Adenuga passed away in 2007 at the age of 45, leaving behind two devastated children, and an orphanage that was home to more than 40 kids.
Ige and Joy quietly stepped into their mother’s shoes, and responsibility for the orphans in the home fell on their young shoulders. Indeed, both postponed their education so they could take care of the orphans each lovingly calls “My kids.”
It is a huge task they have undertaken, and though they do not have sponsors or a regular cash inflow, they have made a success of it; the children are happy and quite a few of them are overweight. They have care-givers rotating 24-hour shifts. All the kids but the two youngest are in primary and secondary schools.
“It’s not easy at all,” brother and sister admit. “It’s God that has been helping us.”
It doesn’t end there. The orphanage not only takes in vulnerable and abandoned children, Ige Idris helps lost children as well, tracing their families in Ibadan, where the orphanage is located, and sometimes in towns and villages far from the state. A child was once brought into the centre by the police. He looked to be about five years old. He was found wandering and sleeping on the streets. He was covered in scars and deep, healed knife wounds. He was bathed, fed, clothed and sheltered at the orphanage. Ige along with a police officer at Iyaganku police station tried to find the boy’s family. He succeeded in locating the street where they lived. It turned out the boy’s father was a homeless thug and he was responsible for the child’s scars. Residents recounted how he once tried to cripple him so he would stop moving about.
“It’s terrible,” says Ige. “We see these things all the time. I don’t understand how people could do such things to their own children. Sometimes we find babies so new-born their placenta would still be attached to their bellies. I would bury the placenta.”
Besides running the orphanage and tracing families of lost children, Ige and Joy run around looking for funds to keep the orphanage afloat. They have no stable financial support and their responsibilities are enormous.
He says, “My sister and I, we get nothing out of this. But we love our kids, and we love what we do. And we sleep peacefully.”

           Extend A Helping Hand
Wednesday, 29 December 2010 04:01 Gloria Usman

The New year is around the corner offering an opportunity to the privileged to remember the unprivileged, extending a helping hand in gifts giving and sharing as a way of love and concern.

People are bombarded every day with selfish thoughts, and more and more people are living that way. But should people only be thinking of themselves? Many people are discovering that helping others is as beneficial to themselves as it is to those they help.

It has been observed that people feel better after they help other people. Reason? Probably because people tend to forget their own problems when they care for someone else. The only possible downside is that people sometimes worry that they may not have helped the other person as much as they should have I asked some persons how they intend to share this season and here are their responses.

Mr. John, a self-employed man says, “there are many families who are out of work and facing redundancy. There are those facing hard times economically who cannot afford presents because they are struggling to put food on the table and pay their rent. There are those who cannot be together as a family because they are separated by circumstance. And there will be children, both here and abroad, who will not have the opportunities that we often take for granted. For that reason, my wife and I have decided this year that we will not be buying each other presents. Instead we will donate the money we would have spent on each other to charity here and around the world to help children who are suffering. It is important that we show solidarity with those who are in pain or deprivation at what will be a difficult time for many ordinary families. New Year should not be about what you spend, or what you get. It should not be about how much you earn, or how much you have to borrow to have a good time. Let us appreciate the things God has given us, and pass those blessings on to others. Remember that this does not have to involve money - you can share your talent and the gift of your time to help other people too. God loves us and we have a responsibility to pass that love and kindness on to others. Sadly, all too often, the poorest in our communities are forgotten. New Year is a time of celebration, fun and thinking of others. Is there something you can do to make New Year more enjoyable for those around you? I hope you had a Merry Christmas and are preparing for a blessed New Year.”

Mrs Patrick said: ‘Sharing in the joy of New Year with my family is amazing time. After the service I go home and spend time celebrating with my own family. I cook dinner for us all, usually roast turkey with all the trimmings. I love to cook when time allows. It’s a great honour to be put in charge of something so important. Once everything is ready we sit down and eat together.

For Mr David, a business man, this year is different, since his children have all moved away, according to him: ” my wife and I would just be at home. I always think that New Year is a time for families, to share, a time for caring for those we love. But there are many people who do not have that same love and support’. Helping others, especially when the less privileged, gives both parties a better understanding of each other and when people understand each other, they are healthier and become safer as well. One good way to help the unprivileged is to gain a better understanding about their needs. Helping others feel expose you to gained as much and more experience than the person being help.

Helping others can be a good practice as well. Helping others doesn’t have to mean doing charity work; although doing charitable work doesn’t hurt ones resume either. The economy is becoming more and more service orientated. Helping others is very important in any society. The more people feel helped, the more you will get from them. When you use your resource and time to help others, you have played a part to making the world a better place. When people work together for the good of others, they feel more connected to both themselves and others.

Religious belief and obligations cause many to help others out of a sense of duty and doing something for the divine. Allowing yourself to help others will provide opportunities for you to identify with the situation that another person is going through. Helping people who are in need allows you to selflessly give to others. This in turn teaches you how to respond to another’s feelings and situation. Developing empathetic skills can assist in strengthening your interpersonal relationships.

We live in a world in which many are seeking to promote their own interests. Helping others is important because it enables us to balance the selfishness in our lives with selflessness. Helping others allows us to centre our energies on the needs of others. When an individual takes time to engage in activities that are selfless, he gains perspective on his life and what is really important. The reward of good feelings motivates some to help others. Volunteers working with ‘Habitat for Humanity’ feel good about it. Feeling good about helping others can encourage you to help another person. When you give to others you become an example for not only your children, but for your neighbours, family and friends. A child who sees his father buying food stuff for an elderly, home-bound neighbour will grow up looking for ways to help his neighbours. When others see you helping others, they will be inspired to help themselves. When others are inspired to help, more will receive the assistance they need.
