    Sir, my two-year-old son, Chukwuma Odoemene, from Imo state, Nigeria, was diagnosed with a hole in the heart at UNTH Enugu and the Gift of life cardiology team from India that came to UNTH this January, rejected my him for surgery on grounds that the equipment needed to handle his case is not in UNTH and thereafter referred my child to India for the open heart surgery. Honestly, I don’t have the resources to take him to India and therefore ask for your help to save the life of the child. He is in pain but wants to live. Please see how you can help me.
    Thanks.
