BN Community Centre: Mary Needs Our Help to Walk Again



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.


Mary Expirander Etukudoh, an entrepreneur and graduate of Lagos State University (LASU), was involved in an accident in 2012, where she sustained neck injuries.

The bus she was in somersaulted several times, and she squeezed herself out of the vehicle. She has since then, for seven years, been bedridden, and is unable to move her legs.

She spent 6 months and 2 weeks at the National Orthopaedic Hospital Igbobi, Yaba, before she was discharged, and is being treated as an outpatient. She was having physiotherapy treatment for years, but, according to her friends, the Nigeria medical system wasn’t forthcoming. They’re asking that we come to Mary’s rescue.

The sum of 12.6 million naira (£35,000) is urgently needed for a Traumatic Spondyloptosis Surgery, pre and post surgery care at the US to save her life, and help her walk again.

They are grateful for any help you can render through this account number:
