Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria 2011 Sylvia Nduka through her Seed Foundation facilitated the cure of an 8-year old girl who suffered from a kidney infection.

Sylvia expressed her gratitude to God in a post on her Instagram for Fikayo’s successful operation.

She also narrated how she  was moved by emotions to save the little girl through her foundation. Read below:

I met this little Angel, named Fikayo. She’s 8 years old and her mother is a nanny who receives a salary of N15,000.00 monthly. Fikayo has been living with a swollen stomach for the past 6 years and this sickness made her a laughing stock of her school as her classmates call her “The pregnant girl”. She has been in pain and has also suffered loss of appetite medically referred to as anorexia. As fate would have it, a friend brought her to @seedfoundation and when I met her, I knew it was serious. I looked at her and broke down in tears as her condition would get anyone very emotional. SEED foundation took her to the hospital, the doctor examined her and then arranged some tests and investigations (abdominal X-ray, 3 different scans, etc). After which, they discovered she had a kidney infection and suggested a Nephrectomy be carried out immediately. We took care of her hospital bills and prayed to God to heal her. This whole process took about three months. The surgery was successful. We thank God for His Infinite Grace, Fikayo is going back to school as a normal child after staying at home for a year plus, and we are super happy to be a part of Fikayo’s story.

    Wow! God bless you for touching and changing this little girl’s life. I pray our health system improves one day, to accommodate people like this who are too poor to pay for available treatment.

    I’m glad this child has been helped. I am unclear as to what exactly necessitated the nephrectomy — did she have a kidney tumor? OR bad ureteral urinary reflux with severe hydronephrosis?

    Lastly, who pays someone only 15k naira to take care of YOUR KIDS??? you entrust your precious human cargo to a nanny, yet cannot offer pay commensurate to her duties.
