WARRI—A 13-year-old boy with a hole-in-the-heart ailment, Master Miracle Moluku Efe, has sent a Save Our Soul, SOS, to the Delta State Government and public spirited individuals to raise N3 million to enable doctors perform a surgical operation on him to cure the ailment.
Speaking to reporters in Warri, he said: “I want you people to help me to talk to Nigerians, the Delta State Government, organisations and our Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan. I want to live. I don’t want to die. My parents don’t have money for the operation. I was told that it will cost three million naira to do the operation. I have been experiencing these pains since birth. I grew up with these pains and there is no day that I don’t feel pains all over my body. I always feel cold and also have catarrh all the time.”
According to his father, Mr. Moluku, a native of Ubulu Uku in Aniocha South local government area of Delta State, his son was diagnosed with heart problem since 2000.
