Help Restore Taofeek Muraina's Eyesight
Organized by: Adebayo Ganiyu
Taofeek Muraina has been battling with an acute eye condition ever since he was born. Due to poverty, untold hardship and pains that Taofeek suffer everyday of his life, he has attempted suicide a number of times and as recent as December 5, 2012. When asked why Taofeek wanted to end his life, Taofeek said “Life is unbearable for me. I was born with an eye problem. My wife, Tawa, left me and dumped our 10-year-old son with me. I learnt that she has got married to another man. I attempted to commit suicide by poisoning myself while my son and neighbours were not at home but my landlady got home while I was preparing the mixture."
“I decided to end it all because I could not afford the cost of surgery and no one wishes to help me. With my condition, I still manage to work to feed myself and my son but people hate me.”
Taofeek suffers excruciating pains daily and faces a difficult life. People often make fun of him because of his budging eyeball.
We need $40,000 that is asked by hospital for his treatment. We are appealing for contribution from people around the world for Taofeek Muraina.
