The crew of the Saturday Morning Swing on Ultimate 106.9 fm has donated three thousand five hundred cedis (GHc3,500) for the purchase of a prosthetic limb for a nurse with a disability in her left leg.
Florence Tutu a graduate of the Komfo Anokye NMTC, is an ardent listener of the SM Show which has fast become Kumasi’s most listened to Saturday amusement show which combines music, comedy, prank calls and the most unusual fun interviews.
Donations began pouring in when Host of the show and EIB Northern Sector Brands and Marketing Manager Nana Benyin Anamel made the appeal some three weeks ago, to raise funds to support her buy a new prosthetic limb.
He narrated “Florence listens to the Saturday Morning swing so one day I met her at Komfo Anokye and I realized her state. With the prosthetic leg, you need to go for it to be increased as you grow and increase in height but she didn’t have the money to do that.”
“So I talked to those who listen to the Saturday Morning Swing, I put a post on facebook, I talked to some elderly men that I knew and then fifty cedis, thirty cedis, ten cedis gradually we were able to raise the two thousand five hundred. Then from nowhere one Doctor and Mrs McHarison also came and added a thousand to make it three thousand five hundred.”
Comedian Foster Romanus, who was on the Saturday Morning Swing, also donated a hundred cedis to the course.
A grateful Florence Tutu was elated she could now walk with much ease to pursue her dream of becoming an exceptional nurse.
She told Ultimate News’ Ivan Heathcote – Fumador, there is this perception that nurses are disrespectful and look down on their patients but I want to be an exception to the rule because when people are sick and looking at the way nurses will treat them, I become sad.”
I thank Nana Benyin; he has been a good friend. I thank Ultimate fm; I am going to do the prosthesis and come back to show you guys that this is what you did for me and this is the result of what you donated.
Florence Tutu also thanked all who donated with a quote from the book of Galatians 6:9 which quotes, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
