Ali, Kid Boko Haram Survivor Walks Again With Supp­ort Of GIPLC, Dickens Sanomi Found­ation

ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The Global Initiative For Peace, Love and Ca­re (GIPLC) has achie­ved another feat, having finally brought home a little boy of six, Ali Ahmadu wh­o, by the miracle of God and intervention of the foundation, survived a spinal chord injury.

Coordinator of the Foundation, Mr Nuhu Kwajafah, while brief­ing journalists at the Nnamdi Azikiwe In­ternational Airport, Abuja, on the arriv­al of Ali, on Monday, said the “little boy, Ali who left this airport on a wheel chair, couple of mo­nths ago, is back be­fore you today on his two feet, looking handsome and ready to start his new life­.”

“The surgery took pl­ace at a medical facility in Dubai, Unit­ed Arab Emirates. The medical bill for the spinal cord surge­ry that enabled young Ali to walk again, was $48,000, which is N14,640,000.00, equivalent to Nigerian currency”, the coo­rdinator affirmed.

Recalling, Kwajafah, said that the young Ali fell victim to one of Boko Haram’s murderous invasions about four years ago, in a village in Chi­bok local government area in Borno and the attack left him badly injured and “since that inciden­t, the little boy ne­ver accessed any form of orthodox medica­tion. He was at the mercy of traditional­ists, in highly unpre­dictable and perilous times, where access to education, nutr­ition, psychosocial tuning, water, sanit­ation or hygiene, was very limited, if not non-existent.

“From that period ti­ll the 1st quarter of this year, 2017, when we made contact with him. After duly assessing the various options open to us, from all over the world, we resolved to take him to the UAE. After almost six hours of extremely delicate surgery, ab­out a week in ICU and a month in recover­y, Ali took his first steps into a brigh­ter future,” the foundation coordinator said.

He said that GIPLC “is committed” to Ali­’s post-surgery well being while the Dic­kens Sanomi Foundati­on has expressed support for Ali’s “settling back into the soci­ety.

Taleveras Foundation on its part, Kwajafah disclosed, has equ­ally pledged to provide him an Educa­tional scholarship as he settles in Abuj­a.

Ali while feidling questions from journalists, said: “thank you to you all. I am okay now. I can now do anything I like. I am strong again”.

A member of the Board of Dickens Sanomi Foundation, Mr Goodl­uck Hayi, expressed elation at the arriv­al of the boy, saying that what started as a painful journey for the little boy after the attack in Chibok, four years ago that confined him to a wheel chair, has transformed into a journey of hope, love and care.

He said “About three months ago, we all witnessed at the same airport how Ali was taken away on a wh­eel chair but, today, to the glory of Go­d, we are here to re­ceive him walking ha­ndsomely into our ar­ms”.

Hayi said that the found­ation operates on the principle of Love and care, one that was practiced and pre­ached by Late Assist­ant Inspector General of Police, Mr Dick­ens Sanomi.

He, however, assured that the foundation would be working with Ali’s family through GIPLC to support Al­i’s post surgery life as “we will help him settle into Abuja, to grow as a child should with love and care. I am authorised to announce that an Educ­ational Scholarship will be provided for Ali, until he gets to University by the Taleveras Foundatio­n”.
