Former President, Jerry John Rawlings has donated GHC 5,000 to the 16-year-old boy, Andy Dodoo, who was bathed in acid by a tenant of his dad’s.

The money is to help cushion the cost of medical bills accrued at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra for his treatment.

He sustained severe acid burns after a tenant Suleyman Yuguda poured the corrosive substance on him following a misunderstanding with his father.

Three others also suffered other forms of injuries after the suspect poured the corrosive substance on them.

Although the three others have been treated and discharged, Andy and his father are still on admission at the hospital due to the severity of their injuries.

Since Andy’s ordeal was made known, Mr. Rawlings has visited the hospital and many benevolent Ghanaians have donated sums of money to cater for his hospital bills with ex-President Rawlings the latest to donate.

The principal, lecturers, as well as nursing students from the College of Health Sciences at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, have also donated GHC7,000 to the victim and his family.
