If you’ve ever had a health-related issue in Nigeria, then you will probably understand that it is extremely difficult to fund your treatment and navigate the healthcare system.

In view of this, BellaNaija launched the BN Community Centre. This online platform will feature “calls for help” as submitted to us. This includes information, photos and account numbers.

We have a project about a young girl that suffered a careless accident that need urgent medical attention.

This ‘Medical Fund Project’ is for Susan OreOluwa Ologan. She was involved in an accident on the 31st of July, 2017. A vehicle driven by an un-licensed driver reversed and hit her against a stationary vehicle, initially she fell, in a bid to remove her from underneath the vehicle, the driver was asked to move his vehicle and somehow he reversed again, this time hitting her head against the earlier said stationary vehicle. The driver has been un-cooperative.

She is a student of Bloom Heights School, Bibilari, Basorun, Ibadan

She was immediately rushed unconscious to the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan bleeding from the right eye, right ear, mouth and nose. She was received at the Accident & Emergency (A&E) section of the hospital and several tests were carried out; after a CT-scan, it was revealed that she has a broken jaw, a fractured neck bone and swollen brain. A surgery was performed on her on 2nd of August, 2017 for N250,000 to open her skull in a bid to give her brain room to expand and contract un-inhibited (according to the doctors). She has undergone additional surgeries, including one to stitch her right eye shut in a bid to protect it from going dry as it was no longer being supplied moisture. She is still unconscious (hundred days and counting).

Her parents have spent in excess of two-million naira (N2m) {inclusive of outstanding bills} already, her daily oxygen need in the ICU is N18,000 (add that to the cost of feeding through tubes, cleaning, physiotherapy, drips, etc). Her parents are in need of support in prayers and cash.

She’s in need of further surgeries, the primary one is to drain fluids from her very swollen head.

This is plea to everyone.

Susan Oreoluwa Ologan needs our help.

    Is there an actual bank account for her ? I feel so uncomfortable donating through some fund raising sites that request for a lot of personal details.

      Hello Libby, isaid and Ewa,

      Thank you for sharing your concern. We are partners with Donate-NG because we find it’s better to have a reputable crowd sourcing organizaiton that is in touch with the families and carries out first level background checks. Also to allow our readers outside the country to also give.

      We’re particularly sensitive to fraud as well, so we don’t run all the stories sent to us for this reason. Once it looks sketchy, we drop it. We also go one step further to check and double check. Please note that the issue of crowd sourcing is something that we did not do for many years, because we were terrified of the risk of fraudsters. But, since we started, we’ve had so many good stories of the help. So, I guess we’re happy to help at least one person.

      Also, we encourage readers who want to give to also to conduct independent research if they’re not comfortable.

      Finally, this year for BN DoGood 2017, we’re working with Donate NG to do more than just share the stories online. We’ll keep you apprised of any updates.

      Thank you so much for caring. We really love you guys.

      Honestly, you’re the reason we keep the lights on at BN HQ.

      Love x Light (literally.)

      Dear Libby,
      donate-ng don’t collect payment details as you enter them on the payment gateway itself, as you would do shopping online.

      There is also an option for bank transfer which provides you a reference number to use and the account details to donate to, should you want to donate to Susan.

      Its always about the person in need.

      Regards
      donate-ng

    Please guys…. don’t be discouraged, I personally know donate-ng.
    I have used it several times from crowd funding. It’s a safe and secure way to donate and be sure that your money gets to the right quaters. Pls have no fear and dont let this deter you from helping Susan.
    It’s similar to go fund me, and even if it helps let’s support our local brands.

    Guys, there is a bank transfer option available amongst the payment options and it doesn’t require additional personal details, only the name. It’s credit/debit cards option that require more personal details. I pray for quick recovery for Susan in Jesus name, Amen.

    I remember this beautiful young girl from UCH ICU. When my dad was admitted in the ICU we were all together with her parents. Please any way possible we can help would be appreciated. Her mother is constantly with her in hospital. Nothing is too small. May God always come to our aid in times of need
