Saving "Grace"- Help a mother with her med care

My name is Kennedy and I am from Nigeria. I'm 23 years old. I have a daughter her name is Diana and she's 4years old. Her mother died while giving birth to her. Ever since then my mother has been the one taking care of her when I was away. I'm from a polygamous family, my dad got married to three wives and my mom is his first wife. My dad has 12 children and I'm the 4th child of my parents. My mom gave birth to 7 children, 4 girls and 3 boys while my stepmom gave birth 5 kids. My dad is a business man but his business hasn't been going well lately. He has BP and Diabetes, so most of the sales from the shop goes for his drugs and our feeding. My mother's name is Grace Anthony, she's from a Native tribe in Nigeria called Amasoma. She's 48 years old and she's the only surviving member of her family.


Ever since she got married to my father, things has always been difficult for us growing up. My mother has always been the pillar of our family. We have always struggled to survive since we were little, so I'm the only one that left the village 5 years ago and went to the city with my cousin, brother Goodluck, to hustle so we can take care of our families and always do our best to provide their needs in any way we can. We have been struggling for years now earning little amount of money that we use for our upkeep in the city, but ever since my mom got sick I left the city and came back to the village so I can take care of my mother. She was attacked spiritually and now it has gotten worse. she's suffering from a sickness called Ochiere in my language. It's a very dangerous sickness that can kill anyone within a short period of time. The herbalist man that came to treat her told us that someone close to us did this to my mother out of envy. Mother's leg has been decaying for months now, the problem we're facing right now is that if we don't provide proper treatment for her as soon as possible she might lose her life or her leg, and the injury on her leg is increasing every single day because we have not started a proper treatment on her. I've spent all the money that I came back to the village with on my mother's treatment and yet there was no improvement, I used up all the money that I've been saving in the city for over 2 years and 7 months for her treatments. That is why I started looking for someone that would support me for my mother's treatment. The doctors said she have from now till 16th otherwise her bone will also be infected...


Please I don't mean to bother anyone with my problem, all I'm asking for is anyway anyone can support me with anything I'll be very grateful
