GHANAIAN ACTRESS Lydia Forson is currently on a begging mission, calling on Ghanaians to help her raise an amount of $36330.

Lydia says she would use the money to save the life of a 2-year-old girl, Kalila Mahama, whose life is at stake as a result of a heart disease called Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF).

TOF is a complex anatomic abnormality arising from the mal-development of the right ventricular infundibulum and affects children mostly below the age of four.

Kalila Mahama was diagnosed of the TOF earlier this year and doctors say she would suffer a permanent stroke if she is not treated early.

Her parents are yet to raise the cash amount of $36,330 to conduct a surgery on her. The family had tried all they could for the past months to meet that financial obligation but to no avail.

Lydia Forson has therefore taken it upon herself to help the little girl and has embarked on a begging campaign to raise the funds.

“Friends, help me raise $36,330 to save a little girl. She is diagnosed with tetralogy of fallot, a heart condition. The surgery will be done at the Boston Children’s Hospital. Our target date for raising the funds is 25/11/2010. You can send an email to Faiza Iddrisu on Facebook OR call 0244541828 for further information. Bank details are: 1051010077813, GHANA COMMERCIAL BANK, FAIZA IDDRISU. God Bless you all,” is a message the actress is circulating to her friends via her Facebook page.

NEWS-ONE was not able to reach Lydia as at press time yesterday but the paper managed to fish out the mother of the little girl who gave her name as Faiza Iddrisu.

According to Faiza Iddrisu, the deadline for her daughter’s surgery is Friday, November 26 this year. She has thus sent a plea to Ghanaians to help save Kalila’s life.

She also thanked Lydia Forson for her support so far and debunked talks that the actress’s campaign to raise the amount is a scam.

“I need to raise the funds to save my daughter and Lydia is helping me… She is going out of her way to do this for my daughter because there is little time left to save her life. You can verify all this by visiting me at the Ministry of Justice and Attorney-General’s Office (Budget Division).

“To everyone who has been supportive in your various ways, God bless you, and to others who think it’s a scam, I can understand your concerns and as stated above, you can verify the authenticity. Know that this is to save my little girl and bashing Lydia with your negative comments is not in any way helping our cause. As stated in her appeal, you can call me and I shall provide you with the answers.”

Gossip Mama is one of the dumbest writers you will ever meet. What she lacks for in brains she makes for in.....As a female with some lil sense in her mind, she wants to give it out to the celebs lacking it. If you dont find her glued to the Tv, check her out by the computer bashing some celebrity with words.. I am not a journalist nor do I aspire to be one. I am a blogger who saw the potential of this site and joined the bloggers. And yes, I am biased. I only report on artists/celebrities that I like or find interesting..... BBM pin: 2320FEE4

        1. @maame,

          You got it right, surely it got a lot of people reading and Gossip Mama has achieved what she wanted. Headings pull readers and they can send readers away too. I guess this will fall within the former….

  1. How on earth would lydia expect ppl to raise such a huge money within a couple of days.anyway,hw much has lydia herself raise?i wish contributors gud luck.

    1. @osei, it takes two to tango…never say never….if everyone can donate then i believe we can even get more than the amount she’s talking about.

  2. Tell lydia to go and ask for that money from the CEO of rLG communications. I hear the man who signed her has lots of money to give women and also he had a private party for her at la palm for her birthday last month, pls do the math! These peope think we are fools, lydia how much have you raised or how much have your friends helped? Do your part so we can do ours too pls! I still think you are a cool person… but come on!

      1. @27 calibre,

        No offense 27 calibre but Jen has a valid point. If you think of it most of this celebrities and their counterpart can drop that kinda amount of money without blinking any eyes. I think Jen is saying that because if you did really heard the private party the LG Executive Africa threw for Lydia and friends on her birthday on November 4, your jaw will drop.

        We don’t have any problem helping the little girl which I personally have done it many occasion but if Lydia can occupied such a party from the CEO of LG Africa then I guess she can do this easily before the deadline of the little girl surgery.

        Remember that when a celebrities becomes an ambassador or to promote a particular brand they get a huge allowance to promote the product. On top of that most of the celebrities has a personal connection with the Executives of the brand because of their contract with the product. Do you know the celebrities I hate the most? Emmm…I don’t like most of the Western celebrities because “most” of the Western celebrities makes millions of dollars and still got balls to ask for charity from the middle class.

        @ Gossip Mama,  since the story was found to be true you could’ve picked a different headline you know….lol… because you make my girl Lydia look like a beggar.      

        1. Well said atleast you get my point and where I’m coming from… if anything lydia should take it to rLG communications the company that she is an ambassador for and get them to put up atleast half of that money which should be peanuts for themconsiderating that la palm is very expensive…. then we can add ours on to it! Set the example and don’t just put bank account numbers on the net b’cos you did 3 or 4 movies. I wish these so called stars can follow the foot steps of Menaye Donkor girlfriend of sulley muntari… my girl walks the walk and put her money where her mouth is!
