FUNDRAISING TO SUPPORT NEEDY CHILDREN REQUIRING COMPLEX SPINE SURGERY There are hundreds of children like 12-year old Ama , whose future is stalled because of curvature of the spine in their early ages. At 1 year old, Ama was not developing at the same rate as her peers, she was unable to sit, stand, or crawl. At 5 she was suffering excruciating pain in both legs, difficulty sitting for extended periods of time, and she could only walk short distances. Her condition resulted in isolation and stigmatization which made it impossible for her to perform simple house chores or go to school. Several attempts with different health facilities for a cure to her condition proved futile until she was directed to FOCOS Orthopaedic Hospital. Upon her arrival at the hospital, she underwent a thorough medical assessment and was diagnosed with a curvature of her lower spine which would require a corrective surgery and physiotherapy to allow her an improved quality of life. Ama’s surgery is currently pending due to lack of funds. FOCOS Orthopaedic Hospital brings world-class orthopaedic services to Ghana to offer life changing spinal surgeries to straighten the backs of children like this. Foundation of Orthopaedics and Complex (FOCOS), the mother organization that set up the hospital, is working with multiple partners to ensure that these surgeries are offered at seriously subsidized rates. Unfortunately, Ama is one of many children and young adults who do not have the means to cover the costs of the surgeries they require. I am writing to invite you to join FOCOS and partners who are making a difference in the lives of many children. Last year's appeal brought on board 24 sponsors and 20 benevolent individuals. These contributions aided FOCOS to perform 4 subsidized surgeries. However, there are still close to 1000 young people unable to walk, work, or enjoy a normal productive life. Within three months of surgery, and with supporting therapy offered at FOCOS Hospital, they would be completely healthy. We are hoping you will agree to make a contribution of any size to subsidize the cost of straightening the spine of a child. Your gift will make a life changing difference in a life. FOCOS is committed to help these children stand tall. Please consider partnering with us for the 2018 FOCOS fundraising appeal, which aims to make life better for a number of children. Our target is to raise GHC5,000,000 to support treatment services for young Ghanaians disabled by spinal curvature. Kindly find below our packages. Please join the FOCOS save a child FUND at any level. A representative of FOCOS Orthopaedic Hospital will call to discuss your interest in being a part of this effort.
