A video of little girl named Chogtaa whose curative operation for dumbness and deafness made headlines in Ghana from February 2019 has gone viral. The clip portrayed the good news that the adorable girl who is blue-eyed can now hear for the first time.
Little Chogtaa's mother Florence, through the Afi Antonio Foundation, managed to get help for her daughter in South Africa where doctors tried to get the little girl to hear and talk again.
Chogtaa's condition has been described as Waardenburg syndrome, a rare genetic disorder most often characterised by varying degrees of deafness, minor defects in structures arising from the neural crest, and pigmentation changes in the eyes.
After hearing Chogtaa’s story, Eduplex, a South African school, dedicated to helping handicapped kids, immediately offered her a fully-funded place in their school where she will learn to speak, according to GoodThingsGuy.com.
The video sighted on the Instagram account of @Sweet_Maame_Adwoa showed Chogtaa reacting rather solemnly to her first sounds.
It was reported that Chogtaa, had a successful surgery in South Africa. Her surgery bandages were expected to be taken off soon, while by March 15th, she was expected to be able to hear sound by help of a device.
Afi Antonio Foundation wrote via social media: “We promise to post her reaction when that happens in March. Continue to have us in your prayers. Remember we will still need your contributions for her second ear.”
“God bless everyone who made this possible… Your contributions, prayers and sharing of her stories… God bless you."
Chogtaa's mother was grateful for what had happened to her daughter after seeing her daughter reacting to sounds for the first time.Doctors are hopeful that the little girl will learn to talk in the foreseeable future.
