I saw this on Linda Ikeji's blog, and couldn't help but copy it. Obviously, this is the unedited letter from the NGO taking care of Gracious:
Born on the 1st of June 2009, Baby GRACIOUS EFUA-OSE is a precious little girl that should be having fun and enjoying her young life with her twin sister, but unfortunately she was born with a heart condition (Hole in the heart) her poor family have exhausted every last cent they have trying to keep baby GRACIOUS alive. Because of the poor medical facilities in Nigeria her Doctor has diagnosed she be flown to Indian for surgery at a cost of 2 million naira (approximately $12,682.31). Her family who could barely feed themselves could not raise this amount and are reaching out to everyone out there to help save the life of their precious little angel. We at Sumo Child Care (NGO) are using this medium to start an emergency campaign Funds to save Baby Gracious.
We are using this means to appeal to everyone to come to the rescue of Baby Gracious. Even if its $2, €2, £2 or 2naira you can afford please join us in our urgent call to save this baby. The Doctor has since sent Baby Gracious home because there is nothing they could do for her anymore so every wasted second is very precious. In a desperate bid to save her baby’s life, the mother has tried several times to see the Governor of Edo State (Nigeria) Governor Adams Oshiomhole, but unfortunately she couldn’t get past the gate because of protocol. Please help spread this message on Blogs, Websites, Twitter and your Facebook profile. The records of every donation and transaction would be made available to you at your request, and there will be update on this effort to save an Innocent baby’s life.
