Mother of 6- Year-Old Victim of Caustic Soda Seeks Advanced Treatment

A mother of a six-year-old caustic Soda victim, Meima Scott, has made a passionate appeal for assistance to help rescue her son’s precious life. Varney Johnson, 6, who hails from Bomi County, in 2016 innocently drank caustic soda which damaged his esophagus and is now living in pain.

Currently, he does absolutely everything from a tube that is inserted on his stomach.

According to Mother Meima, the incident occurred behind her back when she went on her farm to look for food for her family while a lady in the community had the caustic soda placed by Varney but never thought he would have drank it.

She recalled that since 2016, Varney health situation has not improved as it requires advanced treatment. Meima, a single mother of five, is now the head of the family after her man, she claimed, abandoned her since 2016 due to Varney’s situation as his entire family, she alleged, does not care for she and her children.

Explaining further, she lamented that life is increasingly getting unbearable for her because she is alone in her struggle with no one to assist her.

Additionally, she pointed out that her 14-year-old daughter is also pregnant in Bomi County while her other children are left roaming the streets with no one to take care of them because she is in Monrovia seeking solution to her 6-year- old child poor health condition.

“People refuse to allow us stay in their homes due to Varney’s condition,” the victim’s mother asserted. At times he (Varney), Meima stressed, vomits on himself and feels weak, no appetite and weight loss, among others things.

She told Heritage Newspaper that attempt in 2018 was made to conduct surgery on Varney, but it did not materialize as his Visa got expired in the United States of America where he went to seek advanced treatment and he is now back in Liberia with his condition worsening by the day.

“Your please help me save the life of my son, he is dying slowly”, Meima in tears intoned.

Meima is currently residing up Ducor in Central Monrovia where she is striving to make life as begging in streets corner just to feel she and her child is now the order of the day for her.

Innocent Varney is now living by the mercy of God with tube inserted on his stomach and is surviving on milk, juices and other soft food.

Meanwhile, Meima has appealed for urgent assistance from humanitarian individuals, groups, Government officials and many more through (+231-0779048262/+231-0886034058) to help save her son's life.
