Acid Victim Still In Need of Help


Ms. Lukiayatu Lamie, 25, whose boyfriend threw acid water on her face and chest when she decided to end their relationship, is still in need of help to seek further medical treatment either in the country or elsewhere.
The good news for now is that there are specialized surgeons in the country who could handle her case, but financial support or sponsorship is needed for regular dressings, medications, transportation and eventually the surgery she requires.
The uncle of Ms. Lamie, upon the advice of the Daily Observer, has opened an account in a bank of their choice, for the convenience of empathizers of Ms. Lamie who wish to make donations towards her medical treatment and any expenses associated with the specialized treatment and care that she so urgently needs before the disfigurement and other effects from her wounds worsen.
The young mother of two young children has expressed her heartfelt appreciation for the donations she has thus far received from well-wishers and hopes that others will assist her in any amount they can afford.
Donations can be deposited into bank account #16-20203016016701 at the International Bank (LIB), Limited.
Anyone willing to help Ms. Lamie should do so through the bank account. Her contacts are her uncle Boimah Cooper on cell numbers 0886/ 544-882/524-691 or 0777/ 544-882/524-691 and the Daily Observer newspaper at 0886 472-772 or 0777 472-772.
The attack on Lukiayatu Lamie occurred on March 8, a day after she informed her boyfriend, Armah G. Varney, 30, that their four-year relationship was over.
In the victim’s sorrowful account, the attack happened in Beh Town on the Bomi-Monrovia highway shortly after she informed Varney of her decision to terminate her relationship with him. The two have a daughter.
“I left Varney because I found out that he was a rogue, and for that reason, he got irritated and a day later under the cover of darkness, he walked into the house where I was sitting and splashed acid on me,” Lukiayatu said in tears.”
The assault left her at the point of death and now while slowly recovering she may have permanent injury and disfigurement unless she receives specialized care for the acid wounds which after three months have left severe wounds and scars to her face, chest, breasts, shoulders and back.
Although she has been treated by doctors at the government hospital in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, her condition continues to deteriorate.
Meanwhile Varney is serving a five year prison term for multiple criminal offenses.
