Clarity from the Adongo family Regarding Our Child’s Treatment by the MP for Bolga Central, 30th October 2020
In line with recent News about the treatment of our child in India by Hon. Isaac Adongo, it has become important that the Adongo family bring some clarity on the issue.
It is worth noting that, it was never our wish to discuss our daughter’s health in the public domain, but once it has become a topical issue, we would kindly like to clarify the issue for two main reasons:
1. To clarify our expenses to other contributors who have raised concerns about what their contributions were used for, since the child’s treatment was catered for by the honorable MP.
2. To thank the MP once again and also explain that his contribution constituted 12% of the entire expenses on our child’s treatment abroad.
We are however not seeking to belittle the support we had from the honorable MP.
Respectfully, we would like to add that, preparations were almost complete for the trip before Hon. Isaac Adongo was contacted by a close friend to the child’s mother. We considered it as unexpected but very helpful contribution, and we’re forever grateful.
Considerably, below is a brief breakdown of the total cost of our child’s treatment and the sponsors involved.
The entire expenses on the child’s treatment at the Bolga Regional Hospital, Tamale Teaching Hospital, Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital and the eventual trip to India was approximately $22,000 dollars (i.e Ghc 121, 000 cedis approximately as at 2017). We still have receipts on almost all the hospital expenses.The honorable Bolga Central MP’s contribution was Ghc15,000 cedis constituting approximately 12% of the total expenditure; which we appreciate very much. We are told the MP said he contributed 17,000 cedis, but the family can only confirm receipt of 15,000 cedis from his office.
The remaining 88% contributions came from:
2.Mr. Evans Abolga (Owner of Total 2 & 3 Filling Stations in Bolga town)
5.Assemblies of God Church, Bolgatanga.
6. Other anonymous contributors.
Therefore, if one contributor says he/she sponsored the child to India for treatment, it will be unfair to other contributors who also contributed significantly.
It also will mean that our family did not use contributions from other sources for the intended purpose, since the bill was sponsored by the honourable MP.
That is why the family finds it necessary to clarify the issue in public for people to understand the level of support we received from various sources with much appreciation.
We respectfully call on the general public and all relevant parties to put a stop to discussing our child’s health in the public domain.
Accordingly, we remain very thankful to each and every contributor; including Hon. Isaac Adongo our MP.
May God bless all who supported us 🙏
