Bernice Amago, a Ghanaian pupil-teacher who was knocked down by a mini truck in 2019 still suffers from the consequences two years after the incident.
Revealing the story to Briefly News, Priscilla Amago, a sister to the victim, indicated that their father is a pensioner and their mother, a petty trader who has stopped trading in order to take care of Bernice as they cannot afford the services of a professional caregiver.
It is indicated that although the driver responsible was processed in court, Bernice had to rely on possible insurance claims for compensation which is still pending.
Due to the extent of injury Bernice suffered, the hospital ruled her to be of 97% incapacitation, and three years on has still lost her memory, cannot talk or walk, remains bedridden with multiple bed sores, and still feeds through a feeding tube.
A medical report signed by Dr Frederick Kwarteng, a consultant surgeon at the hospital, said a CT scan of the head showed multiple intra-cerebral bleeds at the frontal and parietal regions.
An amount of $20k (R270k) is needed for the 30-year-old's upkeep and medication with the hope of improving her condition. Anyone willing to contribute is encouraged to send the amount to Mobile Money number 054-808-8242, or via this GoFundMe campaign.
