Daniel Tedow’s Story

Daniel Sandow a.k.a Tedow is a handsome and personable 19-year-old from Walewale who has a passion for life. Tedow and his mother Felicia (his father passed away when he was 5 years old) currently share a room with 4 other people at the Mother’s Hostel at Korle Bu, a temporary lodging area for mothers with sick children. This is because Tedow has lymphoma, a disease of the lymphatic system, and needs to be close to Korle Bu Hospital for treatment. Walewale is about 460 miles from Korle Bu in Accra.

Promising Life Interrupted

Tedow begun experiencing symptoms in June 2018 just before he was about to write his BECE exams, the main examination to qualify students for admission into secondary and vocational schools. Due to his new symptoms, Tedow has had to put his education on hold but is eager to resume as soon as he is able to raise some money for private tutoring. Daniel has grand plans…he wants to be a medical doctor so that he can help sick children and is an aspiring Afrobeats artist.

How we can help Daniel and his mother

Tedow’s mother, a seamstress, walks the markets and streets with a sewing machine on her head looking for individuals who need to mend their clothes. She barely has enough to afford food and medication for Tedow’s lymphoma treatment.

 We are trying to raise:

$1,800 for three years of rent as landlords in Accra will not rent space to anyone who doesn’t pay three years up front.  He also needs $500 for remedial classes so he can catch up and continue his education.

Thank you so much for your generosity.
