Health, it has always been
asserted, is wealth. For anybody enjoying good health, the individual should
see it as the greatest of all of God’s gifts, and should therefore spare a most
wonderful thought for the many persons who are experiencing one health failure
or the other.

morning, while thanking God for our good health, we should not stop there, but
endeavour to reach out to those whose souls are crying for one assistance or
the other to enable them get out of their poor health situation.

harrowing experience the family has gone through, Mrs. Omaka, who disclosed

meet with the financial requirement because the management of Edo Broadcasting

which is about 1.5 million naira to have the operation carried out, for the
cancer to be removed from my daughter’s eye before it spreads. I am begging and
crying for help from kind spirited Nigerians, wherever they are, to help save
the life of my daughter. She is the only child I have. I don’t want anything to
happen to her. I am pleading to the Delta
State governor, Dr.
Emmanuel Uduaghan and his wife, Mrs. Roli Uduaghan to help me. I know that her
‘I care project’ is for people like us. I am also pleading with the Governor of
Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to extend his good heart to my daughter.
They should please help my daughter. I equally plead with Ministers of God and
churches to contribute to saving my daughter. Anybody that helps in saving the
life of my daughter will be richly rewarded by God. The girl is my only hope. I
have not been able to have other children. The little money we had has been
exhausted on medical bills? she lamented.
