Kate Henshaw Returns N8million Raised for Baby Michael Back to Donors
Kate Henshaw has revealed that she and NGO Project Alert will be returning the funds that was raised for Baby Michael back to donors.
In case you didn’t catch the story, Kate Henshaw became actively involved in the life of Baby Micheal Alvez, a 2-year-old boy with a cancerous growth on his face, after she was tagged on social media.
The 45-year-old actress had located the boy and his sex-worker mother and championed fundraising efforts for his treatment. The baby was admitted to LUTH, Idi Araba, after which Henshaw secured the involvement of NGO, Project Alert on Violence Against Women, and the Lagos State Government.
Sadly, Kate and Baby Michael’s family began to disagree over the management of the funds raised, forcing the actress to regret her involvement in the case.
Now PUNCH reports that Kate has revealed the baby is now in the care of his family and the government, and that the family has asked her and Project Alert to withdraw.
Read the statement released by the NGO below.
As An Organisation, Project Alert Believes In Transparency And Accountability. In The Last One Year, We Raised A Total Sum Of N9.8m To Help Michael, And Spent N1.8m. The Account Has Been Duly Audited By An Audit Firm– Bamisile And Co. Since The Family Has Asked Us To Withdraw, We Believe It Is Right That We Inform The Public And Refund The Money To Those Who Donated It.”
Henshaw has also asked Nigerians to stop paying into the account opened for the victim’s treatment.
