A 10-year-old girl who suffered third-degree burns at Munamunaso, a farming community near Nsawkaw in the Tain district of the Bono Region, requires GHS10,000 to undergo skin graft surgery and other therapies.
On Monday, 17 February 2020, the victim, Prosera Buenaa, was entrapped by fire she set up to cook food for her family who were harvesting maize on the farm.
According to eyewitness account, the girl left her brother and aunt, who were farming to prepare the food.
The girl was later found unconscious with various degrees of burns on her buttocks, thighs, groin and abdomen and was rushed to the Nsawkaw Government Hospital where she was admitted for medical treatment.
She had been receiving medical treatment at the hospital until her referral to the Holy Family Hospital in Techiman to undergo skin graft surgery.
Her parents, Sebastian, 49; and Vivian, 43, both peasant farmers, could, however, not raise the cost involved leading to her being discharged from the hospital.
The family told Class News’ Maxwell Attah that they were hoping to receive some assistance from philanthropists and have, therefore, appealed for help from the general public to help the little girl go through the surgery.
