In a touching turn of events, the Vodafone Ghana Foundation has made a profound impact on the life of Oleki Gaduga, a 12-year-old girl from Ada. Oleki was born with Infantile Blount Disease, a rare disorder that causes leg bowing and difficulty walking.
Oleki had been suffering from severe pain and limited movement because of a failed corrective procedure in the past. Her family’s financial situation was dire, and they could not support her much-needed surgery.
However, the Vodafone Ghana Foundation stepped in with timely support to give Oleki a second chance. The Foundation paid for a corrective osteotomy procedure to realign the bones in her legs and get them to work normally again.
After the corrective procedure, an overjoyed Oleki can now walk again. Her aunt, who has been her primary caregiver, expressed gratitude to the Vodafone Ghana Foundation for bringing joy to their family and giving them hope for a brighter future.
"We are inspired by Oleki’s bravery and resilience in the face of such a difficult condition and are proud to have made a difference in her life. Our mission is to bring hope and improve the lives of those in need, and we are thrilled to see the result of our efforts," said a representative of the Foundation.
The Vodafone Ghana Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of vulnerable communities and making a positive impact on the world. Their support for Oleki aligns with their social protection initiatives aimed at improving the lives of those in need.
The Foundation’s efforts to provide essential services and support for vulnerable communities have made a significant impact and brought hope to many lives.
