Life will never be the same again for a five-year-old and her foster parents after the multiple award-winning TV programme, Vodafone Healthline, gave her another opportunity to see the beautiful things in life.

Sarah Botchway was saved her from an eye tumour.

Similar to previous seasons, the episode featured the touching story of Sarah who was born with a tumour on her left eye.

As part of the programme, Vodafone arranged and paid the full cost involved to enable Sarah to undergo surgery in order to correct the anomaly.

Recounting Sarah’s condition, her foster mother Dede Hammond said, “The stigma associated with Sarah’s condition was so unbearable for her mother; she abandoned her at an early age. After she left, we took Sarah in as our daughter and have gone to great lengths to get her medical support but we are financially challenged. 

“We are therefore happy and grateful that Vodafone Healthline came to our rescue. Thank you, Vodafone Ghana.’’

Vodafone Ghana, through its Healthline programme, has supported and transformed the lives of hundreds of Ghanaians who have undergone various surgeries for life-threatening conditions including hydrocephalus, cataract, hernia, fibroids and heart-related problems.

It has also educated and demystified various myths on health-related conditions. 

Vodafone Healthline shows on UTV on Mondays at 9 pm; TV3 on Sundays at 3 pm; Adom TV on Saturdays at 8:30 pm; TV Africa on Saturday at 7:30 pm, and on Family TV on Sundays at 8 pm.
