The Al-Adalah of Saudi Arabia and Super Eagles of Nigeria midfielder John Ogu has donated the sum of N350,000 (about $1000) to Nigerian female basketball player identified as Deborah Onah who was diagnosed with Tuberculosis of the Spine.
Deborah’s Abuja based basketball academy, Titans Basket, took to their Twitter handle on Friday to solicit for assistance that Deborah needed the sum of N350,000 to help with treatment of the disease at the National Hospital, Abuja.
”One of our players, DEBORAH ONAH is down with Tuberculosis of the Spine. We solicit financial support as she undergoes treatment, at National Hospital Abuja. The goal is 350,000 Naira for cardiovascular surgery. No amount is too small.” The Titans Basketball tweeted
Luckly, Ogu who based in Saudi Arabia, saw the tweet and responded immediately and promised to pay the full sum to the account number displayed by the Titans Basketball academy.
The basketball academy on Sunday morning confirmed receiving the donation and thanked everyone for their donations.
The academy also disclosed it received more than the estimated amount and will be taking her to an Indian Specialist hospital in Karu, Abuja.
