Stella’s Story

Stella had always been a bright and ambitious girl, with big dreams of making a difference in her community. However, her hopes were shattered when she got into a terrible accident at the age of 22. The accident left her with a badly injured leg that refused to heal properly.

Initially, her family took her to a local hospital, where the doctors recommended amputation of her leg. However, her father was adamant and refused to let them carry out the surgery. Instead, he took Stella to a traditional bonesetter (TBS), hoping that they would be able to fix the leg.

Unfortunately, the traditional bonesetter’s methods only made things worse, and Stella was left with a disfigured leg that made it difficult for her to walk. For 1 year and 8 months, she struggled to get around on her own, enduring a great deal of pain and discomfort.

It wasn’t until the Vcare for Development Foundation stepped in that things started to look up for Stella. The foundation provided the financial assistance she needed to undergo surgery and get the medical attention she desperately needed. They also offered support throughout her recuperation period, helping her get back on her feet.

Thanks to the skilled surgeons who carried out the procedure, Stella’s leg was successfully repaired, and she was able to walk again without pain or discomfort. She was overjoyed and grateful for the second chance she had been given.

With her newfound mobility, Stella was able to pursue her dreams once again. She started working as a support staff in housekeeping services in Lagos from May 2022, where she could support herself and her family financially. She had also set her sights on a bright future, with aspirations of becoming a Public Administrator or a Human Resource Personnel.

Stella’s journey had been a difficult one, but with the help of the Vcare for Development Foundation and the dedication of skilled medical professionals, she was able to overcome her challenges and achieve her goals. She was an inspiration to many, a symbol of resilience, hope, and the power of human determination.
