Rita Abodoh: KNUST Medical Student Who Raised GHS 1M Through Crowdfunding Has Successfully Undergone Surgery

Early this year, Ghanaians came together to save the life of a medical student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

Rita Ajoa Tawaiah Abodoh, who is a fourth-year medical student at KNUST needed GHS 1 million to pay for her medical bills.

She was diagnosed with a malignant tumour on her right pelvic bone.

The doctors had proposed a surgery where they would remove the affected pelvic bone and replace it with a prosthesis.

The 150,000 Euros surgery was too expensive for her family and as a result, they resorted to crowdfunding and asking people for help.

Once again, Ghanaians showed up with their cape ready to perform heroic act and they did.

Rita got her money and it is now being reported that she has undergone a successful surgery.

“We’re happy to inform the entire student populace that our very own Rita Abodoh has successfully gone through her surgery and is currently undergoing treatment. Thank you all for your prayers and generous contributions,” the KNUST Student’s Representative Council announced in a tweet.

Acts of kindness from Ghanaians have saved Rita’s life.
