BIKITA - A 16-year-old form one pupil at Chirumba High School is appealing for help from well-wishers to go for specialist medical attention on her amputated leg which has started developing festering ulcers.
The leg is giving Sharon Madamombe a hard time as the ulcers are eating deep into her flesh, and she has also developed a sore throat and a runny stomach.
Currently the little soul is under the care of an old granny who can barely support her as both her parents abandoned her, with their whereabouts being unknown.
On behalf of Sharon, the school is appealing for assistance in cash from well-wishers so that she can be attended to by doctors at Silveira Mission Hospital.
Chirumba deputy head Ivy Mukuwe told TellZim News Sharon’s condition was in a very difficult condition.
“I can confirm that the girl’s condition as we speak right now is disheartening. She has developed many infections following the removal of her leg so we are looking forward to anyone who can assist her so that she can go for specialised medical attention,” said Mukuwe.
She said those willing to assist can forward the donation through the school senior lady Miss Mhizha, at Chirumba’s EcoCash number 0772245323
