On the 10th August 2022, The Management of TotalEnergies Upstream Nigeria Limited approved the donation of the sum of Thirty-Nine Thousand US Dollars ($39,000.00) only to our NGO, to support the treatment of a crash victim, Mr. Oluwaseun Michael Abiola, who on the 19th November 2022 was involved in a road crash on his way to work in Lagos state. Of this amount, $20,000.00 will be paid directly to the hospital for the medical bills by TotalEnergies and $19,000.00 to the NGO’s account to cover the travel and accommodation expenses of the victim.

The Founder and the entire board of trustees of the Foundation through the Programme Manager, Mr. Ayomide Akinpelu, appreciate the management of TotalEnergies Nigeria Limited for this kind gesture to save the life of the young man and also commend the organization for its leading role in road safety development in Nigeria and Africa.

Mr. Oluwaseun, 25 years old, a chartered accountant, who is currently receiving treatment at the Institute of Brain and Surgery (IBS), Delhi, India, was rammed into by a mini truck, unfortunately, his own vehicle was the third to be hit by the truck. He was badly impacted.

The mother of the victim Mrs. Dolapo Abiola, on Thursday 30th June 2022 contacted our NGO and narrated the unfortunate road crash incident and the steps that had been taken. Afterward, our team of volunteers in Lagos visited the victim at Physiofit Physiotherapy Clinic Ajah with relief materials

She said, her son was rushed to Gbagada General Hospital where 1st aid was administered to him then moved out the next day after the MRI scan result came out and the Doctor said he needed more attention because he was affected.

He was later moved to Igbobi Orthopedic Hospital at Jibowu Yaba but unfortunately, the neurosurgeons were not available, he was moved out after 2 days to a private hospital at Anthony Village Gbagada (Primose Hospital) where the surgery was immediately carried out and was discharged after 5days to continue with physiotherapy.

Unfortunately, his lung shut down after 3 days and he was rushed to Evercare Hospital Lekki where he was in the ICU for three weeks and was discharged with a tracheostomy tube which he carried for 5 months.

When he was having severe pains another MRI was done and it was agreed by the neurosurgeon to do a posterior surgery, he had it done on 19th March 2022 and he advised we take him overseas for aggressive physiotherapy.
