I dont think it’s right 4 Kate to do this. Two wrongs can’t make a right. Have a change of heart and don’t allow people’s misbehavior cause you to misbehave. What if this boy dies during this period. Please use the police and child welfare and take the boy to the clinic if you don’t trust the mum enough. Giving back the money to donors isn’t the best option dear.
Kate please return the money, maybe that family want to divert the money that made for treatment for their own personal use. People are very difficult to manage and thank you for your efforts.
Please for the sake of this little child please, please do not abandon your efforts in helping child. You have started a great work to help. No matter what the family are trying to do. Please hang on please.
Kate please return the money and forget those greedy bunch of people, as you know that people are very difficult to manage even if you want to kill yourself for them. Thank very much for your efforts and God bless you
Do the needful, you are doing it for God not for the mother, don’t be discouraged rather be encourage the wellbeing of that child is in your hands. Do the needful
So … the boy will die? Because of his mum’s behaviour? Makes no sense. All I see is pride.
It’s all about the boy isn’t it? See it to the end then.
Kate in your good heart pls treat the innocent child. You will never be excused or exonerated if the child meets with a bad fate. May the True God strengthen you as you embark on this journey…We are all behind you…
What is the end game of the family? I don’t get it at all. They should be more concerned about the health of the child than their benefits, regardless of how / who does it. At the end of the day they would be the one at a loss. Welfare should take over it is obvious the family doesn’t have the best interest of the child, and go ahead with the surgery from the money donated. Mehn people make it difficult for others to help.

Always admired Kate. Let her pls disregard the mom and push this great deed to the end.
The hospital can continue treating the child while the runaway mom is still running.
The innocent sick child was money making machine for the mother and they took him away from her and money stopped coming, I guess that was why the family is angry. Their concern should be the well being of the child not money. Someone’s popularity was used to raise the said money and they should not make her regret her good will.
The money they make daily from child begging and exploitation will stop and they want part of the raised funds before cooperating. Go around Lagos and you will see many kids in similar situation being exploited. We need laws that will protect the sick and give government power to rescue a child in such a situation. If a child is on the street, and NGO’s step in, government should have the power to protect such a child when treatment is offered for the benefit of the child. Families that reject treatment and want to continue to beg should be prosecuted for exploitation.
The courts should be able to intervene and take custody of the child. Sometime I think poverty of the mind is far more insidious than material poverty. The lottery of birth is very unfair; what has this poor child done to deserve this?
This is why some people prefer to mind their business instead of helping where it is not needed.
I don’t think Project alert should hands off, rather a process to get Lagos state government take up the supervision of the boy’s treatment should commence as soon as possible. The boy has a right to life and we should all ensure he lives.
That is the problem. A charitable or nonprofit circuit which utterly hates the notion of accounts or accountability. We all remember how religious bodies led by Daddy Adeboye reacted when the FRCN asked that a measure of accounting, especially in terms of succession planning, be made obligatory for all non-profits.
Which country on earth does it happen that a separate body would start soliciting donations for the wellbeing of the child of a family without the family’s consent – and without securing the family’s right to have a say in how the fund is managed, not to say, right to know what is in the fund. This is another corruption packaged as charity.
This is akin to directly encouraging Nonprofits which should exist for charitable purposes to unaccountably leverage any charitable object- like a sick boy – to build its brand, massage its media ego and at the end of the day refuse to do the basic: account for pecuniary assets received for that specific purpose, like the treatment of the boy. and then to destroy the whole enterprise if account is demanded of them as trustees of funds.
If the family of the boy do not ask them for account, who will?
First, these nonprofitpreneurs need to reminded that they had no right to solicit donation over the boy without the family’s agreement. And even with the family’s agreement, the right thing was to have constituted a trust fund managed by select people including the family who would make decisions consistent with the purpose of the trust fund.
This is another reminder of the role of government in protecting us from the bad tendencies of the human nature. People have always and will always abuse others to make money whenever the opportunity arises. Government should make laws governing NGOs with regard to raising and spending public money. I believe such laws exist in developed nations. This is necessary to guard against human nature…
The Lagos Sate Government should immediately step into this and end this child’s suffering.
How can you demand account of money you didn’t raise? When a child is sick, families shouldn’t take advantage of the situation to benefit through that. There are lots of sick kids on the streets begging and their guardians benefiting from it. Any attempt to assist the victim and cure that sickness would be resisted by their guardians as their source of livelihood would be squashed if the sickness is healed. It’s a shame this family can’t allow free assistance without interfering for personal gains. He who raised the money has the right to decide how it would be spent. The sad part of the entire story is that a child’s life is at stake.
Kate, please you can’t hand off now, the life of an innocent child is involved; rather do get the Lagos State Governor/Government to take over this child even if a court process is required so be it. It would be too sad, if the demonic brains around this child allows his death by neglect.
Kate, please do not stop rendering assistance and help to others. none of the curses place on you and your children will come to pass in Jesus mighty name, the precious blood of Jesus Christ will protect and work for you. Anyone of Michael’s family members that curse you is cursed and the host of heaven will destroy such person.
Hardship have turned Nigerians senseless.
