Hospitals for Humanity Leads Fundraising for #HelpSaveNathaniel

Hospitals for Humanity is currently leading in the fundraising efforts for Nathaniel Boluwatito Oyebode who is the 22 year old son of Mr. David  & Dr.(Mrs) Tinuade Oyebode.



Nathaniel is promising and did well in academics and music.



He got into covenant university Nigeria to study computer engineering, but tragedy struck in his 300 level when he collapsed in class and thereafter experienced repeated and frequent ill health.

Sadly, actual diagnosis remained unknown until January 2018,

He suffered several complications including multiple pleural & pericardial effusions, septisaemia, low blood counts, deep vein thrombosis, hemiparesis and much more.

His parents tried to provide the best available treatment for him at great financial, emotional and physical price.

The location of the disease created complications necessitating prolonged hospital stay between January and June with bills and chemotherapy costing millions of naira.

Hence this fundraising appeal to save him.

Currently, he is hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit of Emory University Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia, USA. He arrived on 28th June after the journey requiring oxygen and ambulance services to the hospital on arrival.

He is currently receiving treatment for complications and the tumor is now diagnosed to be an aggressive T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma (TLBL).

He has had pulmonary and cardiac surgical procedures, suffered respiratory failure requiring life support and recommencement of new and expensive treatment.

These are all associated with a growing hospital bill, currently at over $600,000 and counting as treatment continues.

In spite of all, Nathaniel, in his will to live, continues fighting for his life. He looks forward to getting well and completing his studies, like youths his age.

Available and hopeful treatment options for Nathaniel currently include bone marrow transplant, costing hundreds of thousands of USD.

This is currently beyond the reach of his family and they seek help to save their son's life by donating to his treatment here or via
His mother's bank account:

Account name: Tinuade Oyebode
Account number: 3004909009
Bank name: First Bank Nigeria.

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

Selling Smart Phone Pictures: When My Phone Photography Exhibition Abuja Held Recently

The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. 
The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
