A 14-year-old girl named Millicent Nukornoo tragically died on Sunday, March 3, 2024, at 4:30 p.m., after being hospitalized to the 37 Military Hospital for a heart valve ailment.

Her folks were desperately looking for financial assistance for their daughter’s surgery. They lived in Anloga, in the Volta Region.

To assist in raising money for the family, Citi News released a piece to that effect that included their contact information.

Millicent was identified by hospital medical staff with two defective heart valves, one of which was irreversibly damaged. Legs began to swell as a result, causing severe discomfort.

Her parents required $16,000 for heart surgery, which was scheduled to take place at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, in order to address her urgent condition.

A close family pastor, Rev. Daniel Quashigah of Anloga, said the parents are grieving over the loss of their daughter.

Along with thanking kind contributors, he also expressed gratitude for their prompt assistance.

Rev. Quashigah shared, “I sadly seize this moment to sincerely thank you and your great platform. We tearfully lost Millicent Nukornoo yesterday [Sunday] between 4:30 pm. Millicent was admitted at the 37 military Hospital on Sunday 4 February last month. The parents are in distress now.”

“However, they are extremely grateful for the prompt response you and your platform provided. They confirmed to me that because of the story you published online, he received an alert of GH¢1000, and her mother also confirmed an alert of GH¢2500 from kind-hearted Ghanaians.” Once again, we are extremely grateful to you and your platform. May God Almighty reward your good deeds a thousand times more.”
