Following a successful corrective surgery in Suriname, two-year-old Emanie Melville returned to Guyana recently.
Inews met up with his ecstatic mother, Felicia Melville who was anxious to express thanks to everyone that supported and offered assistance to her son. He was born in 2014 with his brain exposed.
“I wanna say thank you each and every person that was there, I want to say thank you to the general public, who did the most, thank you to everybody that was there for me when I needed it the most,” said the happy mother.
Felicia Melville spent close to two years soliciting financial assistance in order for the toddler to undergo the surgery.
She relayed that though the surgery was successful, the doctors in Suriname had explained to her that it would take a while for little Emanie to adapt and do normal things as a child.
However, this did not discourage her, as she asserted that she was positive that “God will take care of him.”
Inews was also able to speak to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Non Governmental Organization (NGO) Champion of Change, Shondel Craig, who stated that she is heartened at the success of the surgery and the general support being given to the baby and his mother.
This is the organization that has been working with Felicia Melville, and her child.
Craig relayed that they are still seeking financial contributions from members of the public, since there are many bills that are yet to be paid.
Anyone with the intention of making any contributions can do so at NGO’s location at Maraj building, in Georgetown.
The CEO of Champion of Change also stated that anyone with problems similar to that of Felicia Melville can approach the entity for help.
