On September 14, 2007, Constance lost her immediate family in a road accident. She survived the accident, but not without sustaining a major hip fracture. Since that black September, Constance lived with the pains of her damaged hip, the lifestyle limitations that came rent-free, and more grievously, the loss of every member of her immediate family.
Twelve years later, Constance had received a good deal of relief from the grief of her family’s death, although she still bore emotional scars. Her hip fracture on the other hand stayed fresh and made enormous lifestyle demands on her. She had trouble sleeping well due to the pains; she never went back to school, never played a game, never moved without clutches, and a lot of other limitations.
But favour found Constance. Her physiotherapist got news about GEANCO’s free hip and knee replacement surgeries and it was too good to be true! She applied, and to her amazement, was selected. The surgery came through and Constance began a new life.
While she was being interviewed, she expressed her gratitude and amazement. She plans to go back to school, once the surgery sets. Her life can now take a new turn.
“I am so fortunate … it is the grace of God that has made GEANCO to choose me. Because I don’t know them, I have not come in contact with any of them. I say a big thank you to GEANCO. I pray the Almighty God will grant their heart desires and protect their families.“– Constance Ojo
