On November 26, Nana Aba Anamoah posted a video on twitter. The video featured an eight-year-old girl and her mother. The little girl (Davelyn) had been diagnosed with hole-in-heart.
Aside from her heart condition, she was also autistic, 90% blind and mute. The girl’s father also passed away some months ago. After her diagnosis, the hospital requested an amount of $9000 equivalent to 50,000 cedis to treat her. Her mother did not know what to so she sought for help outside.
Nana Aba Anamoah was touched by the girl’s story and decided to help her. She posted a video on Twitter to solicit funds for the girl’s surgery.

“8-year old Davelyn can’t hear. She’s 90% blind & autistic. She has just been diagnosed with a hole in heart. Kindly support with any amount and prayers. May our great maker bless you. Help us raise 50,000 cedis. MoMo: 0244-472-624 (Dorcas Yorke) 0540-703-584 (Phoebe Cobbinah). “
Many people who were touched by the little girl’s story sent contributions through the MOMO numbers she gave out. Within 48 hours, the total amount had been raised. Nana Aba Anamoah thanked everyone who contributed.
Nana Aba later revealed on her Twitter timeline that the first lady of Ghana, Mrs. Rebecca Akuffo has settled the full cost of surgery. She tweeted “The First Lady, @RAkufoAddo has settled the full cost of Davelyn’s surgery at the Cardiothoracic Center. Thank you so much, Auntie Becky. We have extra funds now to put Davelyn back in a special school. I’m more than elated”.
She thanked the first lady for her kind gesture.
Now little Davelyn has a reason to smile thanks to the benevolence of some Ghanaians and the first lady of Ghana.
We are Ghscoop wish Davelyn all the best in her surgery. It is our prayer that everything goes on successfully.
