Samsa, 15 years old boy is gradually losing his sight as a result of what appear to be like tumor or cancer growing from his eye-lashes to cover his eyes; already his one eye is completely blocked out with the other fast going blind.
Meanwhile last year, thebridge outfit brought the victim with his father to the Korle-Bu Teaching hospital but the eye center was under renovation and he was referred to the 37 hospital where he was scheduled to meet a specialist doctor the next but for inadequate cash we could not afford to stay in Accra to wait on the date and have to return home to the upper west region.
So, there is an urgent need for medical experts who at the same time are touched by God to treat the boy on charity; since there is no way his peasant farming parents can raise any huge amount for their son’s treatment. He attends Loguporo primary school.
Samsa is the second born of his father’s eight children with two wives, including Samsa’s mother and another woman.
Samsa’s father, Moetey said right from birth there was a tiny boil on one of the boy’s eye lashes like pimples, but as little Samsa grows; the seem-like pimples on his eye lashes grows too.
Mr. Moetey who initially resorted to traditional medicine, travelled from his Loguporo community in the Upper West region to Sawla in the Northern region with the boy to seek traditional treatment.
But after some years of unyielding failure to get cure for his boy, Mr. Moetey said he took the boy to the regional hospital, and after some days the boy was referred to the Akonfo Anokye teaching hospital in Kumasi, but after three months of no success, they were discharged.
Mr. Moetey told a Bridge reporter who visited the community that “I am tired about Samsa’s condition, and I am praying to God to send medical experts to treat my son.”
