N100,000 donation awarded to one year old hydrocephalus patient in Ibadan,Sugar Foundation .
As part of his routine philanthropical exercise and commitment to rendering assistance to the less privileged and downtrodden masses in the society, Hon. Dr. Olatoye Temitope Sugar on Saturday donated a sum of One Hundred Thousand Naira to Moyosore Kehinde, a one year old hydrocephalus patient for medical surgery at the University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan.
According to the release on his Facebook page, Moyosore Kehinde has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus symptoms which is fluid in the brain since seven month old and this has caused sporadic enlargement in his head to the extent that he could no longer control the movement.
Presenting the cheque personally, at the Olatoye Sugar Foundation, Oyo State Headquarters, Hon. Dr. Olatoye Temitope Sugar thanked God for the opportunity to affect lives positively saying this is in demonstration of his passion to liberate and bring relief to the less privileged, widow and children.
He described the presentation of the cheque as part of the fulfilment of his promise to always assist little children with chronic diseases saying Moyosore is one of them. Hon Sugar later promised that OSF will add more cash in case there is need for more to ensure the successful operation of little Moyosore at UCH, Ibadan.
He disclosed further that, there is an understanding between OSF and the management of some reputable hospitals in Oyo State to assist those who could not foot their medical bills.
The lawmaker representing Lagelu-Akinyele Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Abuja assured and promised to continue to making lives meaningful in all strata of life.
The mother of the patient, Mayowa Kehinde from Orita Aperin in Ibadan North East Local Government Area of Oyo State told newsmen that, when she observed that the head is getting bigger than all other parts of the body, she called attention of her neighbours who advised her to take the child to the hospital for proper medical attention.
She further explained that, they have been to many places both private and government hospital before they were directed to the University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan where they requested for huge amount which the entire family could not afford.
The mother noted that failure to raise the money needed for the operation at the University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan brought them to Olatoye Sugar Foundation (OSF) Free Medical Centre at Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
She passionately thanked the benefactor and prayed for success in all his endeavours urging other political office holders to emulate Hon. Sugar in providing succor to the masses.
