  • Facebook Group: Yorochi Tv Set To Buy Posthetic Leg For It Memeber

  • Yorochi tv a Facebook community is on the verge of raising 1,000,000 to buy a prosthetic leg for it member named Andres Idika Mary who lost on of his legs in a Moto bike accident in 2020.

    Read Andres story below 

    "My mom had an operation in February last year and could not carry anything on her head. That was a bit challenging because we sold garri to make ends meet and it required getting the cassava from the farm, carrying it home, taking it to where it'll be processed and all of that. But thankfully, school strike and the indefinite lockdown happened, so I was able to stay home with my elder brother and help my mom.

    On May 30th 2020, mom called me to come help her go to the farm, get the cassava and process it. It was a normal thing so I went, got the cassava from the farm, peeled and washed it, grinded it, and around 8 pm, my brother came around. We had dinner with mom, gisted a bit and heading to our place after telling her that we'll be back the next day to play a match -I used to dance and play football-.

    We were on my brother's bike that night, and he was driving. As we were going, around a popular hill at our side, we noticed another bike coming from the opposite direction on a very high speed. It was not maintaining its lane, so my brother flashed the headlights twice to notify them. They were still not budging, we had to avoid them totally. But even at that, they still kept coming at us. We did not know that they were thieves and they had stolen a tank pump from a caterpillar that was parked in a construction site. 

    Two of them were sitting on the pump, but it was so heavy that the weight was controlling the bike. They ran straight into us. I fell separate from my brother. I actually stood up to go help him, because the bike was lying on top of him, then I saw that my leg was not there. My leg was very different from my body and the only thing that was holding it to my body was a thin thread of flesh. I looked at my brother, one of his legs was gone. I think it died that instant.

    The thieves actually came to where we were lying and screaming for help, they looked at us, and went their way. We pleaded with them to at least take us to a hospital, but they just left. We were there till around 12 am or so. We were in the pool of our own blood, screaming our lungs out and when we were spent, we started talking to each other, waiting for the first person to die. 

    My brother finally managed to get his phone out and call a friend of his that was staying around. He came in that middle of the night, ran around to get a vehicle, and finally took us to a hospital. I woke up on a Monday morning. I had been out for 2 days. The doctor said that we lost so much blood. Mine was at 22% and my brother's was at 21%. They referred us to a private orthopedic hospita in Umuahia. When we got there, the doctor said that there was no saving my brother's leg, that it was straight amputation but they could do something for me. But when they opened the leg, they discovered that the previous hospital stitched it wrongly. I already had dead muscles in my leg and it was decaying rapidly.

    My mom was given the option of us staying alive with one leg each, or dying with both legs. We both are the only children she has, so our legs were cut off."

    I cried when I heard this story. I couldn’t stop myself. Even with everything that has happened in one year. This man is so happy. Very happy. 

    Andres Idika Mary used to be a dancer and footballer. 

    I've been seeing Andres' posts since YorochiTv was created last year, but I met him in person last week at the YorochiTv Uyo. He came to Uyo all the way from Crossriver to meet the family he has made online. I've seen happy people, Andres is a happy person. He is everything YorochiTv stands for, he is a true Yorochian. He does not let what happened to him steal his sense of happiness. Guy is jovial and fun, and his dress sense is always beautiful.

    We can do this, guys. We can make this happen. We can give our own a chance to stand on his own without crutches. 

    The first time I saw GeChi on her feet without the crutches, I was so emotional. I was so happy that I almost dropped a tear. We can do this for Andres.

    We've asked, a prosthetic leg for him is within the range of 800k to 900k. We're about 132,000 here. Your 1k, 2k, 5k, 10k is enough to make his life easier, better. I know things are hard, I know things are tough, but here is a young man with the capability of many things. Your spare can bring his visions to reality.

    I’d also love to go visit his mom this week with Yorochians in Aba.

    For once. Let’s do this. Let’s use our numbers to help change a life. 

    Do not tag anybody. This community will come together and make Andres walk again.

    Let's do this for Andres. For us.

    Andres will walk again

    As of the time of filing this report 800,000 has been raised so far.
