Michael Alvez, a child with an infected facial haemangioma was found on the street of Lagos being used by his mother to beg for alms. He was rescued by prominent Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw and two others, Temitope Oluwagbemi and Aramide Kasunmu. Kate being a Project Alert Ambassador, brought us in for proper organizational management of the case. The four, referred to as THE RESCUERS have been caring for Michael’s medical needs, with financial support from Friends of Kate Henshaw and members of the public.
Michael was first admitted at Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH on March 16, 2016 but had to be discharged because of nurses’ strike in June 2016. He was however re-admitted November 2nd, 2016.
Michael recently clocked two on the 24th November, 2016 and it was celebrated it in the ward with other children. The journey towards recovery for Michael Alvez has been challenging but the dedication toward his recovery is an unflinching one for Project Alert & other RESCUERS.
