“My name is Funke, I’m a 23years old lady. I’ve always dreamt of being an actress since I was little. 3years ago I joined the film industry with high hope,” she wrote.
“Everything seemed fantastic and I decided to produce my first movie, I worked hard and save despite being a breadwinner in my family, I was so excited that finally, my dreams were about to come through, however, on my way to the film location I had a terrible accident which left my leg with 3fractures and injuries, to me everything seems like a dream, it was the worst nightmare.
“So I had poor treatment because my relatives took me away from the hospital because they believed that hospital can’t handle it except Local traditional place I tried to disagree first but after much persuasion I accepted.
“It’s been 10 months now I couldn’t walk by myself, I went back to the hospital and I was asked to do bone surgery with immediate effect and I should budget 3million naira that otherwise my leg may be amputated. I’m so scared, I don’t have anyone to rely on financially.I need help and support my people please help me with any amount will do something to help me.”
