Ruth Olawoye still needs help for plastic surgery
THE sad story of Ruth Morounmubo Olawoye, who was badly deformed in an accident, was first published in the April 2014 edition of The Guardian.
The 32-year-old lady is thanking everyone for their support so far, but still needs the assistance of compassionate Nigerians to realise the sum of N5million for surgery.
Ruth had a tragic road accident where she lost one of her eyes, one hand and four fingers.
Despite the untold hardships this predicament has placed on her, she is doggedly forging ahead in life and even daring to make a better life for herself
Now she desires to feed herself without begging, but all her efforts have proofed abortive as she has nobody to help her achieve the dream to be independent and become a better person in life
Ruth, who released her first gospel album in June 21, 2010,entitled Aiyetoto, could not hide her tears as she narrated her ordeal and pains after she was involved in an accident that led to the amputation of her hand at the age of 20.
She was travelling from Ketu to Epe for a church programme when a petrol tanker collided with the 14-seater passenger bus she boarded.
The incident took the life of 10 passengers while four others were severely injured.
This badly burnt lady lost her father in 2002 before the incident and her mother, who is her only help, became ill. Since her aged mother could not take care of her again, the situation forced her out of their rented apartment to be hanging around. She could only get little help from her church that gave her a small room where she lays her head every night, but could not provide for her basic needs.
Ruth has realized N548, 500 from the support so far and is now seeking further assistant so she would be able to do something with her life, instead of begging on the streets.
She seeks the help of good Samaritans to help her undergo plastic surgery and also start a business to earn a living.
