Man in $30 000 appeal for spinal cord operation

HARARE - Lucky Gomwe, 40, is appealing for assistance to undergo an operation in China to remove a growth on his spinal cord.

He requires a total of $30 000 for the operation and for logistics.

Gomwe has been bed-ridden since July last year. 

Any movement causes him excruciating pain.

Gomwe said, “My whole body is aching and I have lost appetite. I am failing to eat and I become weak. I am appealing for assistance so that I can be able to walk and fend for my family.”

He lives with his wife, child, his brother and sister in a small cottage in Southerton, Harare. No one is formally employed in the household. His brother sells airtime and his sister plaits braids for a living.
“We are suffering and we cannot make ends meet,” said Gomwe’s sister, Shylet.

“It is difficult with a brother who is not feeling well. We are at a loss on what to do, but we hope well-wishers will donate towards his operation in China.”

Well-wishers can donate to a Barclays Account Number 1118521 or send money via EcoCash to 0772 931157 or 0773 986003. Gomwe resides at House No. 67 Fleming Road, Southerton, Harare.

They come in dosens from foreign countries to seek devine solutions through the Man of God, Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa. Advise this family to visit 89 Central Avenue for guidance

Another scam to get money for nothing. Why China ? I am sure their are Doctors here or in the region who are quite capable of doing this.
