Foundation pays medical bills of 9-year-old orphan in Bauchi

The Nura Manu Foundation has paid the medical bills of a nine-year-old orphan, Ibrahim Saidu Isa,  who went through  plastic surgery at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Teaching Hospital (ATBU-TH) as a result of serious burns after falling into a boiling pot five years ago.

North East correspondent, who visited the hospital met Saidu on his hospital bed recuperating from the surgery that was conducted on him Monday after the foundation paid for the surgery, diagnosis and other medication.

A representative of the foundation,  Comrade Ibrahim Hashimu Abdullahi, told North East Trust that the foundation has widened the scope of its activities from paying scholarships to humanitarian services.

Abdullahi explained that the little Saidu has attracted the attention of the foundation after reading his story in the Daily Trust newspaper being a vulnerable child who was denied access to be enrolled in primary school because of his medical condition.

He said the intervention was aimed at supporting the child to regain his health so as to compete with his contemporaries favourably in school and also have a better life like other children.

The mother of the child, Aisha Saidu, thanked the foundation for coming to their aid, saying amidst tears, “I will forever remain grateful to this foundation for erasing the agony of living with my son for five years battling with burns, pains, physical and emotional stress.

“I pray Almighty Allah to continue to uplift and bless the founder, Alhaji Nura Manu as well as anyone who contributed to this intervention.”

She equally lauded the efforts of the good young men and their neighbours at Anguwan Sarkin Bindiga area of Bauchi metropolis who brought their plight to the limelight that led to the intervention that saved the life of her son.

It will be recalled that Daily Trust had on November 27, 2020, published the story of the displaced orphan seeking N250, 000 for plastic surgery to treat burns in ATBU-TH.
