A Good Samaritan from Kitwe Oscar Kaluba has donated K5,000 to a two year old Joseph Mubanga suffering from tumor disease that affected him a few months after his birth.
Mr Kaluba offered the donation to the child after reading about the boy and seeing the pictures.
Mr Kaluba said he was touched when he read the story and saw a picture of a boy having a growth on his back suspected to be a tumor.
“I did not hesitate to offer the donation, all I want is that the boy be quickly taken to specialist doctors for treatment, and I’m also urging others to contribute towards the treatment of the boy’s illness to help him get relief from the pain and discomfort” Mr Kaluba said.
Last week the father of the boy Mwape Mubanga, 35 told Times of Zambia that the growth on his son’s back started like a pimple six months after he was born.
Mr Mubanga said the pimple continued to grow and become difficult to heal.
He said that he went to so many places seeking solutions but to no avail, and that he had no money to take his son for further diagnosis. He decided to appeal to the Government, non-governmental organizations and well-wishers to help him financially so that he can take his son for further diagnosis.
Mr Mubanga thanked Mr Kaluba for donating K5,000 to allow him take his son for further diagnosis to specialist doctors.
“May God reward him for what he had done for my son who is in pain and discomfort” Mr Mubanga said.
Eye witness Grace Senkanti who witnessed the donation thanked the well wisher who donated towards the illness of the child and wished the child quick recovery.
