DUSAF presents GH¢ 20,000 for child’s surgery

Non-Governmental Organisation, Dynamic United Stars Africa Foundation (DUSAF) and partners, has presented a cheque for GH¢ 20,000 to help a child undergo anal surgery at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.

The child Saviour Deladem Norgbezi is said to have been born with a defect which prevents him from passing excreta normally.

Ms. Deborah Oduro, Founder of DUSAF with her team made the presentation to Deladem’s parents, in Accra, last Tuesday, to cover the cost of correcting the anomaly.

She said the amount which was raised in collaboration with sister NGOs (Wennett Hope Foundation, Standup UK, Concerned Heart Foundation and Associates Partners) formed part of DUSAF’s numerous initiatives to transform lives in communities.

“The first surgery was successfully carried out to create a normal defaecation path for baby Deladem. He is expected to undergo the second phase of the surgery to close the wound on his stomach where the doctors created a pouch to enable him excrete waste,” she said.

The Philanthropist was optimistic that the funds would enable the child live a normal live after the surgeries had been performed successfully.

Emphasising the foundation’s commitment to supporting the needy, Ms Oduro said that Deladem’s parents would receive an undisclosed amount to enable them start a business and sustain the family, and expressed appreciation to donors and health workers at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.

DUSAF has for the past seven years supported individuals and groups as well as helped restore hope to underprivileged persons across the country through periodic community outreach.

Recent projects embarked upon by the foundation include donation of cement bags for the construction of a health facility at Loum in the Eastern Region, support to Good Shepherd Orphanage, and free health screening and provision of food items to persons in less privileged communities during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Funding of Baby Deladem’s surgery was another feather in the cap of the benevolent organisation.
