Movie director, Leila Djansi is calling on Ghanaians to help her raise an amount of $25,000 to save a little girl from going totally blind.
Little Doris has bilateral Retinoblastoma, a cancer or tumour of the eye that is prevalent in Ghana among children aged 1-3.
After a year of receiving treatment at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Doris had to be flown to Fortis Hospital in India for advanced treatment.
Her parents, according to Leila, have been finding it difficult to meet financial obligations to aid her cure.
The ‘Sinking Sands’ director who has since last year been helping is embarking on a campaign to raise funds on social media.
“Doris requires $25,000 to become cancer-free. So far, she has seen a lot of progress as the tumour is shrinking rapidly. But it is important to keep her on chemotherapy.”
“Please donate and share so we can spread a wide net of love and support to help this brave girl in her fight to thrive,” she said
