Take a Look at Vida Kumiwaa's health condition.

The above named 20 year old young adult has been seen on several occasions at the Holy Family Hospital in Techiman,  Ghana.

We got to know about Vida's condition through a friend who has seen her daily challenges.

Throughout Vida's life she has no control over when to urinate or ease herself. The urine and stool come out without her control or she being aware (involuntarily). This makes it very difficult to mingle with others and obviously going to affect any chance of her getting married. She struggled through  Primary school and JHS amidst teasing and rejection ; currently a seamstress apprentice.

A bold step was taken by Shepherds Ghana to know what was really her medical condition.

Finally the silence was broken and according to Dr Asibey as attached to to this story, Vida has Occult Spina Bifida; a condition which exist from birth that affects the spinal cord making Vida lose control of the muscles that controls the opening and closure of her anus and urinary bladder. The loss of control allows the free flow of their respective content.
She also has Ectopic ureters (abnormal positioning of her ureters) 
From Doctor Asibey, the Snr Specialist at the Paediatric Unit, we need an estimated amount of *18000 Ghana Cedis* for our young sister to be healthy again. This amount include:
MRI of Lumbo Sacral Spine ....1000
Examination Under Anaesthesia (EUA) and Cystoscopy.... 2000
Repair of Spina Bifida. ... 10, 000
Follow up care .... 5000
We wish to however plead on behalf of our friend and sister, Vida Kumiwaa and her family for any little assistance to support her to undergo this surgery to repair her Spina Bifida. 

Thank you for helping her for the sake of God and humanity.
