In December 2005, about 60 Loyola Jesuit College students lost their lives in the Sosoliso Plane Crash. Kechi Okwuchi was the only student and one of two people who survived the plane crash. Since then, she has undergone about 75 surgeries. But Kechi still needs help. She is scheduled to begin facial reconstructive surgeries in Boston this summer.
Two of her close friends, Somachi Chris Asoluka and Yimi Omofuma are doing something amazing for their friend. They are trying to help her raise money to help her cover the cost of her surgeries. Please see a message from them below and pass on to as many Nigerians as possible.
“A devastating plane crash, over 60% intensive burns, up to five weeks in medically-induced coma and over 75 surgeries to date have not hampered the spirit of our friend, Kechi Okwuchi. She may have been terribly disfigured by the accident but Kechi’s determination and hope to achieve her dreams regardless, inspire us each day. We would like to share her story so that it may inspire you too.”
After the crash, Kechi was immediately transfered to South Africa for urgent treatment. Since she had to relearn to perform muscle movements, physical therapy followed when Kechi was in a more stable condition.
