FOR nine-year-old Nora Galapopo, life has not been rosy. She was born with what doctors refer to as conceptual dysfunction of the tibia and fibula.

This unfortunate medical condition has made walking, which other normal children take for granted, a nightmare for her.

Nora, a Primary Three pupil, clutches to support herself. She is always assisted by the parents to cover the near one kilometre trek to school. Her condition is apparently giving her parents sleepless nights.

Her father, Mr. Benedict Galapopo, has visited many medical facilities both in Delta State where they live and elsewhere looking for medical help so her daughter could walk.
He said doctors told him that Nora needs a bone transplant and that the operation would take place in two phases.

The first operation would be in the first four months and the next within six months.

He added that the operation would cost about N1.3 million, which he could not afford and is, therefore, appealing to well-meaning Nigerians, NGOs and philanthropists to come to little Nora’s aid.

He said the last operation on his daughter was performed in 2012 at Larry Clinic, Warri, Delta State, but the clinic has closed shop.

Galapopo said he had consulted doctors at the Delta State University Teaching Hospital where he gathered that N1.3 million would be enough for the bone transplant operation.

He, therefore, pleaded for help from Nigerians. He can be reached on 08068463323 or pay into Benedict Galapopo Ecobank, account number 2491028128 .
