The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has extended his benevolent hands to Aisha Haruna, a 13 year-old orphan from Daura, Kastina state, who was involved in an inferno that burnt her beyond recognition.
The former vice president has reportedly approved the immediate payment of all the hospital bills, including her plastic reconstructive surgery.
In a statement disclosed by Paul Ibe, Media Adviser to the former vice president, Atiku gave the directive through his Cares Foundation (ACF) after the plight of the young girl was brought to the attention of the former Vice President.
Atiku Abubakar, who is also the Grand Patron of Atiku Cares Foundation (ACF), approved the immediate payment of all the hospital bills, including plastic reconstructive surgery for Miss Aisha Haruna, an orphan.
The ACF got to know of the news of this life threatening situation of Aisha via Facebook. The victim, an orphan had been poorly taken care of at home because of paucity of funds to facilitate her treatment.
Following the directive to ACF, which is focused on humanitarian interventions, Aisha was moved with an ambulance from her home in Daura to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Kano where she is currently receiving specialist treatment.
