On the 6th of May 2011, in the village of Dong, Adamawa state, Pwashikai Nideno, a 5 year old girl was kidnapped by suspected ritualists (who are now in police custody) and mutilated. She was left for dead in a bush, but crawled by herself to a footpath where she was discovered by a passer by. Covered in her own blood with intestines dangling out, she was rushed to a hospital and doctors diagnosised her with Recto-vaginal Fistula.
Raising the much-needed funds for her surgery has been difficult and Brown Heart Foundation has taken up the young girl’s cause. Brown Heart Foundation was co-founded by Chaste Inegbedion in 2009, in memory of his father who died of a cardiovascular disease.
The foundation now calls on the public to donate funds so this child can have surgery and return to normal life. To help with the cost of little Pwashikai’s surgery, please pay to:
Specialist Hospital, Yola Relief Account, First Bank of Nigeria 3602040000842.
The Brown Heart Foundation was founded from the need to contribute to community service with the goal of educating people to take steps in maintaining healthy lifestyles beneficial to the heart. Brown heart endeavours to sensitize the citizens of Nigeria on the dangers of heart conditions and ultimately the prevention of such conditions.
Brown Heart’s future outreach goals include ‘LEGG IT’ (Let’s Get Generous in Time), a put the fun in fundraising model that will transcend pressing issues of our contemporary society through a proactive community service that individuals, institutions, government brands and other civil societies can adopt for execution of their charity projects.
