Meanwhile, Tacorabama Women Foundation led by Madam Felicia Tetteh, who double as the Northern Regional First Vice Chairperson of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has made a cash payment of GH₵50,000 cedis to cater for the cost of treatment.
Speaking to Adom News after the donation, Felicia Tetteh said she was moved with compassion when the condition of little Fuseini was brought to her attention.
She added that the condition of the boy is very bad, appealing to other well-to-do Ghanaians in and outside the region, NGOs or those who care to come to the aid of little Fuseini to save his life.
