OKIKIJESU OLAWUYI - Child born without a skull


Okiki was born on the 11th of May 2010 to the Olawuyi's in Ibadan Nigeria. She was born with a very rare medical condition called Congenital Cranial Deficiency, which means she was born without more than half of her skull.

Since GIPLC became involved in her case, last year in July, the sum of $234,000 (Two Hundred and Thirty Four Thousand  USD) has been raised for her treatment, which will happen at the John Hopkins Medical International, Baltimore, Maryland in the United States of America.

Her first in the series of surgery will take place in April 2013 and the period of recovery will run it's course through the year.

Okiki, her father, mother and little brother will be in the United States of America for a year assisting Okiki on her recovery. We therefore appeal to you all our good partners in progress to still reach out please and make your donations no matter how small to see to their upkeep untill they return back to our shores. We still need to pay for their air return tickets, accomodation in America, feeding, transportation, communication and utilities [power, water, heating and cooking gas] medical variant and complication expenses running into millions of naira. You have always responded whenever we ask and we know it will not be different this time. Thank you and God bless.
